A Few More Pictures

I'm going to be traveling this week for work, so before I go I thought I'd leave you with a few more pictures.

Lavender Rose asked what I do with all of the exchanges that I receive. I'm very lucky to have a room that's dedicated to my stitching habit. Our family computer is located in that room too. So here are just a couple of snapshots - some of the smalls are in baskets and some are up on a shelf. I have a few of them tucked away and then I rotate every so often!



Look at the thoughtful RAK I received from Lelia this week. She volunteered at the Midwest Stash exchange this past week and this was the project at the "make it, take it" table. All proceeds went to the American Heart Association. The beaded fob was made by another friend of Lelia's. Too cool!


Lastly, -- I got one! When I checked at JoAnn's last weekend, they didn't have the new Ashley scissors in, but this weekend they did. They are really pretty!


Have a good week everyone; I'll be back on Wednesday!

I love your display of smalls. They sure look pretty. And the scissors - yummm? How soon after I enter the U.S. can I get DH to stop at Joann's?

Cathy,
Have a safe trip. I wanted to say how pretty your displays look. You really have a selection of beautiful stitched goodies.It must be such a pleasure wandering into your room to admire them :>)
I hope you got my message about the beautiful RAK I received from you last week.I was just stunned at the intricate work and wonderful delicate colours. It's amazing how you can turn a plain piece of white linen into a thing of beauty :>)
Hugs and thanks Angela

Just love your stitching baskets with the littles in them, Cathy. All you've arranged is yummy to see! I just want to climb up in a rocking chair with a cup of tea and talk to you all evening now...all about stitching and stuff!
