First Day of Summer

Today, June 21, is the first day of summer. What a perfect day to receive my Summer exchange from Karen.

Karen stitched a Shepherds Bush design, Scatter Freedom, and finished it is a small pillow. It is just beautiful.

Karen does beautiful stitching and finishing. She also included some very nice goodies.

She sent a piece of banding with a blue decorative edge, a fat quarter of patriotic fabric, a card of different 4th of July ribbons, a pack of #28 Bohin needles (which I have been wanting to try), some buttons and rusted pins and bells which she made, a skein of Belle Soie silk thread and a very cute wooden stick that has patriotic firecrackers on the top. I love all of it! Thank you Karen!
