Today was a "You've Got Mail" day! Yahoo!
First, I received a lovely package from Juanita. Turns out she had my name for the Dog Days of Summer Exchange. I received a needleroll (first one for my smalls collections), some fabric in delectable colors, and six skeins of the new DMC color variations thread. Thank you Juanita!
Notice any similiarities between Juanita's needleroll and the one I stitched for Shelleen? We both stitched the same design! And if that isn't funny enough, Shelleen also stitched this design for Leslie, her exchange partner. I wonder if that's ever happened before? I think we just all have incredibly good taste!
My second surprise today was a package from Tobie. Tobie has become a good online friend. I think that our taste in designers is very similar and I have very much enjoyed reading her blog and watching her stitching progress over the past several months. Tobie sent me this progress bag that she stitched herself along with two charts (Homespun Elegance Enchanted Santa Pillow and Prairie Schooler Pins and Needles). There's also a matching beaded scissors fob! Tobie is very much an accomplished stitcher, this project bag is beautifully done and I will enjoy using it and thinking of my dear friend each time I do!
Well, I'm off to stitch! Have a good evening.
