More exchanges

It has been over a month since I updated, I am sorry. I even tried to update a couple weeks ago but I never finished. Its not like I been busy because the last 3 weeks have been so boring. The hot weather didn't help either. I have been stitching more exchanges and playing my games on Facebook.

The stitched V, above, was stitched for a friend in Las Vegas. She is making a quilt for one of her granddaughters. i am not sure who is the designer but it is going to be beautiful.

I got involve with a Christmas ornament RR. I send at least 5 patterns, with the fabric and specialty threads, and the package is send to 5 other stitchers. When I get them back I will have 5 stitched ornaments to finish off to put on the tree. The first one I got was Shari's and I picked one of the Prairie Schooler. Apparently, we picked the same pattern. What are the chances of that happening?

My i- love-cross-stitch Yahoo group did a bookmark exchange. I can not show the bookmark I did for my partner. My partner is from Saudi Arabia and I am waiting for her to received it first. However, I did got my bookmark exchange from Kim B. She did a beautiful job stitching a patriotic theme and she included 2 Crystal Light drinks and 2 Weeks Dye Works skeins, Banana Popsicle and Carrot. I am using the bookmark already and drank the drinks already. They were good,lol.

In my other I Love Cross Stitching yahoo group (2 separate groups) did the same bookmark exchange. The moderator at the other group send a reminder notice to the wrong group. She is a member to both groups too. So I figure, why not to do this one too. I just send out my exchange to my partner, so no pictures yet.

In the same group, there was a Magnet exchange being offered. I really wanted to do this swap but I was the only one signed up. I made a request for someone to join me and Elaine joined. She send me this cutest magnet. I love it! Elaine did a good job! Her magnet is in the mail and when she gets it I will post a picture.

While back I stitched a freebie from Stitcherhood. I finally finished it off into a pin pillow. I love how it came out. I have Summer freebie to do. I already picked the colors just have to stitch it. I, also, started Lizzie Kate My Country today. It is just a blob right now so no pic of that one yet. Maybe I will be finished with it this weekend.

Until next time,
