Missing in Action....yes, that would be me. Sorry that I have been gone so long. Work has consumed an exceptional amount of time since January and unfortunately it doesn't look like it's going to let up anytime soon. Then about two weeks ago my computer contracted a virus. It was really sick; but I found one of the best computer technicians around -- Mama Joan's favorite son. Not the one with the tattoos (if you visit her blog, you know who I mean) - it's the other son! He killed that virus and made some other adjustments and the ol' PC is working like new!
So, I suppose you want to see some pictures, right? How about if we start with the exchange that Darby and I had in February? Darby is rather new to blogging and never had participated in an exchange before. We decided last November or December to stitch something for each other and exchange in February. Well, we were both kind of thinking on the same wavelength as we both sent pinkeeps!
Here's the pinkeep Darby stitched and finished for me. You will recognize this Blue Ribbon Designs freebie I'm sure:
And here's the pinkeep I stitched for Darby. This is a Goode Huswife pattern called the Valentine Sampler. It seemed appropriate since our exchange "date' was February 13.
I enjoyed getting to know Darby better. It was fun doing this little exchange together!
Now it's March and a small group of us decided to have a pinkeep exchange. I was lucky to receive this beautiful pinkeep from Becky K! It's finished as a double-sided pinkeep. The design is from Blackbird Designs Joyeux Noel book. The colors she selected are so pretty. My photos are a little dark, sorry. Thank you Becky!
Finally, I had the opportuniy to stitch for Joan this time around. I don't think I've ever stitched an "exchange" piece for Joan. This design is from Carol R (iStitch blog) and is called Sew Patchwork.
So there you go; you're all caught up now! I recently started working on a OOP Mary Garry sampler; I'll save that one and try to post again tomorrow.
Have a great weekend!
