Little Critters and Birthdays!

I was so excited to see a package waiting for me when I returned from the lake on Sunday evening. My Little Critters exchange from Svenja had arrived! Inside was this very cute pillow made with ladybug fabric and a cute ladybug stitched design. Svenja also sent more of the fabric, some ribbon, and some cute teenie weenie ladybug clothespins (for crafting). It's all wonderful - thank you Svenja!



Also, I was very late sending Vonna her birthday gift - too many other stitching commitments got in the way - but she received it on Monday. Just one of my hardanger doilies. This one is done on an apricot colored cashel with peach/orange colored threads (Leah's threads). Apparently, I forgot to take a picture, so please visit Vonna's blog if you are interested in seeing it!

Here's a puppy picture for this week - Zeta and Maggie:
