Received a Gorgeous Needle Roll

from Jeanie at HOE. It is so pretty and she sent goodies along with it in the form of a really neat keychain from Singapore, pretty threads, ribbon, satin roses and some very pretty beads. I love the needleroll and package, thank you Jeanie!!

Two more days to sign up

for the Halloween Ornie exchange at All Seasons

Finished My Part of Edgar's RR

Here you go Edgar and I put three black chickens on it just for you.. I am sending them flying to their next stop today. The tree, pumpkins, and "chickens" are taken from Prairie Schoolers When Witches Go Riding. Now on to another RR. :)..Someday I will get caught up!!

Some stitching progress this

weekend. We took the weekend off from remodeling and I got some stitching done. I finished my needleroll for HOE and got to work on Edgar's RR. I kept trying to find the perfect design to go with his RR. I choose some elements from the new Prairie Schooler that are in keeping with the design. I hope he likes it. Here is a picture of the start..

As soon as the needleroll arrives at it's new home I will post a picture of it :)..Have a Great Week Everyone.

Best Exchange Day Ever

I received a whole bunch of exchanges the last few days (Okay, 3, but that is a bunch to me).
First I received this wonderful box and goodies from Rosalie. Isn't it beautiful . Then I got the wonderful biscornu from Nela in the SBEBB Biscornu exchange.. and there were so many beautiful goodies in it, ribbon, beads, chocolate (OH..there is not picture because the daycare kids spotted that), I loved it all.. Then I received my HOE Summer Quaker exchange also from Nela (I was sooo lucky). It had the fantastic compact mirrow she made it it. Beautifully stitched over one and bright beautiful yellow tones. Unfortunately the pictures do not do it justice. Thank you so much Nela, I adore it.

Finally, I did drop out of a couple of exchanges. I need to destress according to doctor for health reasons. By no means am I dropping out of all of them, I can't I'm addicted. Just in the short term, some of the ones that have more serious deadlines, I don't want to disappoint anyone, but I am still exchanging, just on a more cautious and considerate course. So no one think I will not be following through, and I am still doing the all seasons ornament exchange since there will be a 6 week deadline which gives me lots of time and isn't nearly as stressful as those with a month or less deadline :).....

Make a Wish to Karen

Karen wished for a needlebook. I used Milady's Needle School Girl Necessaries for the design and DMC varigated red (I can't remember the number). I put Mill Hill beads around the edge.. She received it yesterday and says that she likes it. It was really fun to stitch.

Actually finished something

My F&S pieces are completed. They are part of Blackbird Designs Loose Feathers #31 - Blessings and Kind Words. I stitched them on 32ct antique White Linen. I hope she likes them, I mailed them out today. I should soon have a couple more exchanges stitched. Although I won't be able to show them until they arrive at their destination. I am working on setting up something for an all season ornie exchange. I'll post something here when I have it figured out.
