I know it has been a long time since I have posted; sorry about that. I've been able to do some stitching, but can't show you too much right now. Here are some exchange updates...
Fob Received from Down Under
Alison had my name for the HoE fob exchange. She stitched a small design from The Drawn's Thread Wildflower Garden. I have always loved designs from The Drawn Thread so this is just perfect for me.
Alison sent other goodies - a candle made in Australia, some chocolate, some beautiful threads from Needle Necessities. I love it all! Thank you Alison!
Valentine's Day Exchange for Su
Su received the Valentine's Day exchange I recently sent to jer. I couldn't resist stitching up this beautiful Hardanger suncatcher ornament and matching scissor fob. (Please be sure to check out the photo on Su's blog - she is a real artist when it come's to taking pictures!)
Package from a Dear Friend
Barbara was one of the first stitchers I befriended when I joined the blogging world. Recently I sent her a Carriage House Samplings class piece that I had obtained at the Hands to Work retreat. I knew that Barbara would thorougly enjoy this stocking as she has stitched at least one other and has the other patterns in her collection. She sent the following to me as a thank you. I love both the French magazine and the designs from The Needle's Content. Hugs to you Barbara.
I have to share that I have managed to complete my collection of Just Cross Stitch Ornament magazines. I recently purchased 1997 and 1998 issues on eBay. Yay!
I am going to be away for a few days; need to do some traveling for work. Hopefully I will get some stitching done while I am away and then I'll have more to share with you! Have a nice weekend and a good week!
