I had signed up for a Spring/Easter exchange on Lainey's blog. I stitched the two sheep for her, since she loves sheep. The picture below is the items I put in the package.

Here is the close up on the sheep. Lainey has named her Vicky, after me. I am so honored and happy she liked everything.
This picture is the lovely package I got from Lainey. She stitched a lovely bunny and finished off in a hanging pillow. I love how she finished it and feathers she used too. The picture below is a closeup of the pillow. She included a small pattern, milk chocolate bars, a cute bunny ornament, floss, and some material. Thank you so much Lainey!

This picture above is the from Judith of Germany. She was my partner in the First Day of Spring Exchange I had organized in my ILCS yahoo group. I got this a couple weeks ago. There are a couple flower kits and some buttons. Thank you Judith!

Today is my birthday and I turned 41 today. I am leaving for VA later tonight so not too much celebrating. My aunt from Cape Cod is coming down for the weekend and will be here before I leave. I haven't seen her since my Mom's funeral. Plus I injured my back. I was bending over, then I felt something shifted and than shifted right back. I was in the er all day on Tuesday. The medicines I got is working and I can move around better.
I am stitching the Spring SAL but had started over on a cream colored material. I will post pics on my next post. Hopefully I will be done with it soon.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter and the bunny brings a lot of chocolates.

Happy Easter!
