Belated Valentine's Day Wishes

Happy Valentine's Day to all my stitching friends! I know this note is a little bit late; I was in Japan all of last week and returned on Thursday. Hope your day was special!

Today I have a couple of exchange updates for you. My Valentine's Day exchange from Carla arrived while I was away. She stitched this new Lizzie Kate design and finished it as a pinkeep. It's beautifully stitched and finished! She enclosed other great goodies - a couple of charts, some ribbon, a candy flower, and some wonderful smelling soap. Thanks Carla!



And, I learned yesterday that my scissor fob for the HoE exchange finally made it's way to Karen in Australia! I used a Prairie Schooler design and was rather fond of how it turned out. Guess I'll have to make another one!



I have several other exchanges that I've been working on and will probably be able to share pictures soon. I've been working my way through the various ONS sites to check out the Nashville releases. Do you have a favorite?

Wow that pinkeep is so cute. It makes me want to stitch that whole new set huh?

The fob is very sweet too, I'd stitch another one as well LOL!

All of the new releases are great, I am trying to avoid the ONS sites at the moment, ;)

That's a gorgeous exchange you received! And I love the one you sent, too. :D Valentine's goodies are such fun!

So, how was Japan? Did you get to see anything while you were there?

Von said...

Cathy, your projects are always such a pleasure to see!

Now you really must tell us all about this trip to Japan! Even if it was for work, you surely had some adventures. :D

Lovely exchanges both sent/received, Cathy :)

In Japan! Wow, lucky you!
Your pinkeep is just stunning. It is so beautifully finished.
Nice fob too.

Sharon said...

Both are just beautiful exchanges!

Vonna said...

Carla did a SUPER job on the pinkeep didn't she?! I just feel in love with it! Gorgeous :)
And your HOE fob is so pretty...I bet Karen loved it too :)
My favorite Nashville release is Hearts of America by LHN (of course...LOL!) And I love My Needlework by LHN (yeah, I know!) I really, really like the Penny Doll...but she costs a pretty penny, so probably will not come to live with me...

Stephanie said...

What a lovely Valentine's pinkeep from Carla - and the fob you stitched for Karen is really gorgeous.

A favourite from Nashville...I am struggling to restrain myself from buying nearly all of it ;)
