I join in an exchange in Stitching With Love Exchanges blog. This was a secret exchange and my partner spoiled me. The theme was Tea/Picnic for a summer afternoon. Barb stitched a lovely strawberry pin pillow and she included a cat plaque, a cat needle minder, ice cream sundae napkins, Dinky Dyes silk threads, and a piece of purple fabric from Sassy's Fabbys. Thank you so much Barb!
The person I send to lives in Canada. Until I get word she got my package, it will be a secret a little bit longer, I hope.
Marjorie, of The Pumpkin Patch Stitcher, had a giveaway and I won. When the package came, my mouth dropped! I was just expecting the prize I won, CCN Tea Room pattern, but she included a tea cup dish towel, tea pot cover, a small stitched pillow and several patterns. I am just touch by her generosity. I cant wait to start a couple of them. Thank you Marjorie!
In KraftersKorner, there was a coaster exchange I had to join. Carien sent me the coaster she made for me. She stitched a flower with strawberries with beads on a plastic canvas. It is very lovely and it will come very handy with my drinks. Thank you Carien!
I picked up Lizzie Kate ABC Lessons this past week. This is what it looked before I started stitching again. I have since finished the word "Be" in the first line, the word "thanks"in the second line, and the letter "H" in the third line. I had finished a bookmark and a coaster for exchanges and working on a Christmas ornament for another exchange. Sorry no pictures until they reach their new homes. The rest of the pictures is my new stash I got from my retreat. I have a lot of stitching to do!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer and trying to keep cool!
