20 July 2010
I did about 5 exchanges recently, a mailart, (my first), a First day of Summer exchange, Summer Ornament, magnet, and 4th of July exchanges. I cant show the mail art because I am waiting for the recepient to receive her mailart. Since I did such a lousy job taking pictures of the mail art I got, I will re take them as soon as I buy new batteries.
This is the ornament I made for Debbie Jo for the I-Love-Crossstitch Yahoo group. It is from Stoney Creek and stitched on Charles Craft 14ct Grasshopper aida.
I restitched the sun and watermelon on Sassy's Fabbys Blue Lagoon aida material and made them into magnets. The magnets were for Mary from Krafterskorner yahoo group. She send me 2 magnets too with a package of M&M's. Good thing they where shelled because I put them behind my laptop. When I opened them to eat them, the chocolate was a liquid delight, lol.
Debbie Jo send me this cute ornament, in return, with three beautiful threads from Carrie's Creation threads. They are beautiful.
In my ILCSing yahoo group, there was a First Day of Summer exchange to celebrate the first of summer on June 21. I send to Vickie H in AR. I got this little tote bag and put foam stickers on the bag. Inside I put in a romance book, a Sue Hillis pattern, another pattern I can't remember material and some threads. Unfortunely, her puppy got hold of one of the threads, and destroy it.
My partner, in return, was Debra S. She send me a plate with a watermelon and cherry on it, a garland of leis, 2 charts: Pickle Barrel Design Freedom and Cherrywood Designs That Kind of Stitcher and a cute frame keychain. We both are in KraftersKorners group too and we end up being partners for the 4th of July Patriotic exchange. Debra send me Ursula Micheal Design Stars and Stripes. I can not wait to start it and I will be sending it back to Debra so she can stitch too. I send her a few DMC threads in red, white, and blue, a fat quarter of patriotic material, ribbon ( cupcakes on white with blue and red confetti on the frosting) , flag stickers, and I stitched Lizzie Kate Let Freedom Ring into a wall/door hanger. The picture is on top of this post.
I am working on a summer piece from a freebie kit exchange and a quilt block for a friend. They have to get done soon and than I can go back to my ABC Lessons and Fairy Queen. I havent worked on them like forever and they are calling for me. Maybe I will get to one of them this weekend, since Nascar is back on this Sunday.
