Summer Quaker Exchange

Today I received a wonderful package from Laurie in Decorah, IA - she stitched a lovely pinkeep for me using elements from a Carriage House Samplings design. I was tickled to also receive the pattern for And A Forest Grew, some fabric fat quarters, and a package of needlework labels from CHS! Thanks Laurie!



I also want to show you the pinkeep I stitched for Jo for this exchange. Visit Jo's blog to see the pinkeep that she stitched for Laurie. I think we're all happy!



This week I've been working on Lakeside Lodge - it's about two thirds finished. I'll try to post a progress picture tomorrow. Take care.

Blogger doesn't want me to add photos now...I'll try again later! - Later edited to add pictures...

Lets hear about about that white table runner you have under your pieces. Is it an antique? Is it a family treasure? Perhaps it's your own work. It's gorgeous. Tell us all about it please, pretty please.

Wow you have been busy!!

The more I see of LHN patterns the more I like -- going to have to go on a LHN shopping spree sometime soon!!

September is good for getting back Sampler Game Board on Sundays.

I needed to get my weekly SAL stitching out of the way - they were a bit overwhelming.

One more to finish which I started working on this evening again - WMN Cherished Workes.
