This Is Me!

Many of my on-line friends have asked to see what I look like. I don't like to have my picture taken so I don't have many photographs of myself. Here is one that I don't mind showing.

Picture Heavy Post!

It's been quite some time since I posted. I have a lot to show you. My birthday was March 19th and I received some lovely gifts from my blogging friends. My friend Wawanna sent me a package with so many lovelies. She sent me one of the chatelaines that she makes in pink of course! My Bonnie has absconded with many of the items that Wawanna sent. She adores pink almost as much as I do.

She also included some thread drops, a scarf in my favorite color pink, a thread picker, a candle, and a copy of the movie "The Lake House" staring Sandra Bullock. She also sent some wonderful gifts for my husband and my children. Wawanna is such a sweet friend.

I am in the Stitching Blogger's Birthday Club and my partner Heidi spoiled me absolutely rotten. She sent Country Cottage Needlework's "Cherry Hill" framed and ready to hang on my wall. She also sent a cut of linen, a Kelmscott needle minder with my initial, a lovely journal, a q-snap and an ort bag. I was over the moon with her kindness."(I borrowed some of these photos from Heidi's blog)

I have so much more to tell you, but I will save it and the pictures for tomorrow's post!

Exchange For Carol & A PS Exchange

I have received word that Carol R. has received the exchange that I sent for her. The ornament is from a Shepherd's Bush kit and at the moment, the name of the pattern escapes me. The second picture is of all of the goodies that I included in the package. I had a lot of fun gethering up everything for Carol. She is a wonderful friend.

This is a picture of the Year Long Prairie Schooler exchange piece that I sent to my partner Conny in Holland. It is a PS freebie and is finished into a hanging pillow. These are the last two exchanges that I am signed up for for now. I am having a bit of withdrawal from exchanges but am having a good time stitching for myself. I just finished "Berries & Pins" from Carriage House Samplings. I sent it off to Vonna to be finished and will show pics when I receive it in the mail.

Exchange From Carol R.

I received these lovelies in yesterday's mail from Carol R.. We did a private exchange together. I borrowed these pics from her blog - Thanks Carol! I am just amazed at the gorgeous stitching she did on these pieces and over 1 no less! She also included a cut of linen, some pink gingham fabric, a crystal scissor fob and some crystal marking pins. She guessed that pink was my favorite color. I sent her exchange out yesterday and hope she likes it as much as I adore hers.
