I know, I know! It's been a long time since I last posted. I've just been so busy working on exchanges that I really had nothing to share. The tide will be turning though -- I'm mailing three exchange packages tomorrow: Eye of the Needle, Specific Designer (LHN), and Seasonal Exchange (Autumn). I must say that I really liked all three items that I stitched and finished; it was very difficult packaging them to send away. My consolation is that they are going to good homes! Hopefully I'll be able to share some pictures with you soon.
I do have one picture -- my Fair and Square blocks arrived from Tuula on Saturday! When Tuula asked me what she should stitch on her square, I suggested a Finnish design. On the block she sent me, Tuula stitched a cap that is typically worn by reindeer owners in Lapland. Along with the square, she sent some mittens knitted with a traditional Lapland pattern. I love them! Finally, she also sent a calendar with beautiful pictures of Finland. I will be reminded of our friendship each time I look at it! Thank you Tuula!
