Couple Exchanges, Few Finishes and the Shoppe

 I received a couple exchanges I had organized in the ILCSing yahoo group.  This is the Christmas in July exchange, which came from Sue. She stitched a SanMan snowman, which is so adorable. She included three hand-dyed threads in Christmas colors. I can't wait to add this snowman on my tree.  Thank you Sue!
The next exchange is the Summer exchange from Berly.  She stitched a patriotic coaster, which I love, and added Bobbie G. A Tweety Happy 4th, Lizzie Kate Summer ABC's and Summer Basket, an angel charm, and several packets of a peach drink. I can't wait to start the birdhouses. Thank you Berly!

I had to finish Liberty Belles in a wall hanging.  It is not perfect but I like how it came out.  The mistake I made, if you are wondering, a row is missing on the Belle on your right.  I was suppose to put a white  stitch between the hands and sleeves. When I realize what I did, it didn't make a difference at all. The Belles  are hanging on my wall.  I really shouldn't put anything on my walls since I am going be painting them in a couple months.  Well, my aunt and brother are doing the painting.
While I was doing the finishes for the Belles, I decided to finish a couple Christmas ornaments, which I stitched them last year.  I can't wait to put them on my tree.  Is it almost the holiday season?
Here is my progress on the Shoppe.  I stitched it on Sunday as I watch True Blood and Extreme Chef.  I am still stitching my exchange and hoping to get back to the Shoppe by Friday.
I did stitch on my exchange today but not yesterday.  I just did not get to it. I have a dentist appointment tomorrow.  I am getting partial dentures for my top front teeth.  The teeth are gone, now its time for the impressions part.  Thursday I have an eye doctor, for a field test and pick up my new glasses. Friday I am going to the mall and stitch, and Saturday,  our new stove is coming.  

Have a great week!
Many hugs,
Vicky
