More Exchange Updates

I received this lovely box in the mail today from Nicki as part of a redwork exchange on the SBEBB! (It's hard to tell that it is a box in this photo, but trust me, it is!) The design is the Secret Garden from Blackbird Designs. The box is lined with beautiful red fabric - wish you could see it, this picture really doesn't do the piece justice!

Along with the box came red buttons, red fabric and some red floss! Many thanks to Nicki. Hopefully my redwork piece will arrive at its destination this week!

Chris just notified me that the scissors fob I stitched for her arrived safely. You may recall that I was the very lucky recipient of a scissors fob from Chris! I'm glad I had the opportunity to return the favor!

I stitched the scissors fob from the Cindy Valentine Apricot Elegance ensemble. As you can see, I stitched Chris' fob in blue using Needle Necessities overdyed pearle cotton. The initials are C on one side and C on the other side (for Chris and Cathy!) You will need to visit Chris' blog to see a photo. Apparently I forgot to take one before I sent it off!

Happy Stitching!

WOW! Beautiful fob you made for Chris -- I just checked out the photo on her blog.

Isn't this back-to-school shuffle the pitts??? Alex already missed school this week -- he came home with high fever, sore throat, headcold ALREADY. I saturated him with orange juice, fresh fruits, etc. He just wanted ice cream. BOYS....
