I participated in the Home Sweet Home exchange on the Stitched With Love exchange blog. June was my partner and she stitched me a beautiful pin pilloe. It is gorgeous. She included the pattern Dew Drop Fairy. It is a pretty pattern and is part of a series. Plus there are notecards, olive green thread spool, flower printed tissues, fabric, ribbon saying Home Sweet Home, and a postcard close to her home. Thank you June!

In my Stitching Sisters group, Cindy send me this gorgeous sttiched framed piece for the spring exchange. It came in this huge box and was light as a feather. I have to add a backing to the stitched piece and lined it better before I hang it up. I love it! Thank you Cindy!
I finished up the Christmas ornament exchange In The Stitcherhood group. I won't say who got which one because they haven't let me know if they received yet, but I can show them off. They were very quick and I added beads to add some bling to them.

In my ILCSing group, I participated in the Blooming May exchange. I stitched an ornament for Tiina. It was shipped to Finland and she got it in less than a week. I added some ribbon and fower printed nail filers.
Judith from Germany send me this lovely exchange, a pin pillow, purple ribbon, and some floral patterns. Thank you Judith!
Butterfly and Seahorse fobs
I bought these 2 fobs from Mary Louise on Facebook. The picture is not doing justice to the fobs. They sparkle alot. Seahorse is my favorite aquatic fish. I would love to learn how to make my own fobs. I tried to find instructions on the internet but no luck.

I finished Hope for my aunt. I need to finish it but I am debating to frame it or make it into a pillow. I have Faith and Love to do and I am thinking to do Hope again for myself.
Thank you for reading my blog. I am now exchange free so all my stitching is for me right now. I might be able do more frequent updates instead monthly. In July, I am celebrating my 5th year blogiversary, and just notice I had 297 followers. I am gathering items for a gift away and there might be 2 if I get over 300 followers by July.
Have a beautiful week!
