Fair and Square Blocks

I snapped up some photos this morning and thought I'd post this quick before I head out to work. A wonderful package arrived yesterday from Lisa - in it were the squares she stitched for me, a BBD pattern, some Moda BBD fabric, some needles and a wonderful hand made card. The squares are wonderful - I believe the design is from With My Needle. The card is amazing -- Lisa is a true artist! She put a picture of the square that she stitched on the front of the card; inside are remanants of what she used to stitch the square along with other stitching related stuff. It's really cool! Thanks so much Lisa!




Lisa also received the package that I sent to her. Here are the blocks that I stitched for her (pattern is from La D Da):

Lisa's card is amazing!
And your Rose is a Rose is very beautiful!
That is the one I have been wanting to stitch from a long time ago, but haven't done yet...
As seeing yours, I will definately organize threads and fabric for it! :D
