Exchanges, Finishes and TUSAL

Cat Lessons for People by Lizzie Kate
14 ct Grasshopper Aida
Crescent Colors, Weeks Dye Works, DMC
I finished Cat Lessons in Virginia. I love how it came out and my friend is going to like it alot. I am going have to get more of this material. Luckly, it is easy to buy and I got get it at my JoAnne's. I am going to finish it into a flathold. The cat material in the background is what I will be using for the finish.


JBW Designs~Country Butterfly
18 ct hand-dyed aida
Crescent Colors Pink Posey
I made this butterfly for my friend in Virginia. I stitched it there and did it in 2 days. I used her favorite colors and I just found the perfect fabric to use to finish it off, and the beads too.

The photo above is a bingo prize, from LeAnn, I won in my KraftersKorner group. I am now hosting the current game and had made it to a tribute to Elizabeth Taylor. LeAnn was, also, my partner for the Spring Fling exchange. The next pictures is the lovely gifts I got from here. She spoiled me with these lovely gifts. Hopefully she will like the gifts I had send her.


Here is my TUSAL jar for April. I am a little late showing it. I have been working on an exchange. I found a last minute pattern to stitch. When I saw it, I had to do it for my partner. I will give the details when she receives and open it. I got her package the other day but I am not opening it until my birthday. It is a Easter package and my birthday is 3 days before Easter and I am not going be home for Easter. I am going to Virginia again and won't be home sometime in May. I just loved Virginia and can't wait to get back down there. I will be taking the Amtrak train this time and its a direct route, so no transfers and cheaper than the Greyhound.
My dad is retiring on May 4. I am stitching something for him. I am debating whether to give it to him before I leave or when I return. I will make the decision before I leave.

Until next time,
Vicky

Your finishes are cute Vicky. I really love how the kitty lessons turned out. I read them all and they are darling. Plus the fabby is really great!! So are the colors for the butterfly. Both turned out well. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your trip and will be going back. Nothing like going to a friend's house for a visit!!! You gifts (and prizes) look lovely. Can't wait to see what you do next!!
