Bent Creek "Autumn Arches"
Oh my goodness....I could not believe my eyes when I opened this.  I just love Bent Creek, especially their older designs, and this is one of my favorites that I have just never gotten around to stitching.  Kim stitched this over one and I can't believe how much it changed the "look" of the design.  It will fit just perfectly by my stitching chair.   
Look at these neatly wrapped little treasures!
I also have to share this little detail.....
Kim personalized the inside of the sweet!  Needless to say, this was a great mail day.  Thanks Kim for a great package!

Autumn Exchange from Karen

Today I received my Autumn exchange from Karen D. Once again, it is gorgeous!

Karen stitched "Scatter Pumpkins" by Shepherds Bush and finished it as a flat-fold. Believe it or not, this is my very first flat-fold. I have never even made one myself it. I absolutely love it!

It is so beautifully stitched and finished. Karen also sent me some very useful goodies.

Alot of my favorite things here, love it all!

Thank you Karen!

Jill :)

It's in the Mail!

Hey Karen, I hang my head in shame but I got your package mailed today.

I couldn't find a box that was the right size for it anywhere! They were all too big or too small. Finally my husband managed to construct a "box" of the right size out of a bigger box. I believe his exact words were "it's okay if it's ugly right?" So be on the lookout for an ugly box!

My exchange rec'd from Faye

well, better late than never, i finally posted the pic. I'm not sure if its the camera or the computer (probably computer) but they don't seem to like each other and just give me fits.
Sooooooooooooo,,,,, here is the wonderful exchange i rec'd from Faye last week. Faye stitched one of the fall BBD stockings for me AND one of her wonderful famous pincushions with pins. And these awesome fat quarters, look at those colors. so yummmyyy.. and the floss all match everything in it.
Thank you again Faye for a wonderful and amazing exchange!!!!!

Happy Sunday

I received my Autumn package from Karen yesterday. Isn't this the cutest pillow! The design is from Heart in Hand's Autumn Trio. I love the finishing, you did a great job Karen :)

Karen also included some homemade pins and a gift certificate to Down Sunshine Lane.
Thanks so much Karen, I love my Autumn exchange.

Hugs, Michele

Running a Few Days Late

Hey Kim,

I sincerely apologize! I'm running a few days late with your exchange package. The latest 2-3 weeks have just been insane between fiscal year-end coming up at work this month, my grandmother having a stroke, moving, and then hurting my back last week during the move. Between it all, I just haven't been able to get in much stitching time unfortunately.

Thankfully, I don't have too much more to go to have your piece finished. I already had most of the stitching done before I started packing up to move, so I just need to get that last little bit done and then do the finishing. I tried to finish the stitching part on Sunday while I was watching football, but just wasn't able to stitch yet due to my back. :( It's feeling significantly better this morning, so I should be able to finish up your piece and get it in the mail by Monday at the absolute latest.

Again, I'm so sorry for being late!

Rec'd package from Faye

I rec'd a wonderful exchange from Faye a few days ago and didn't post yet. hanging head in shame...... i will get a pic tomorrow of it. been fighting vertigo today. grrr

Also, Jill your package is in tomorrow's mail, it was suppose to go out today, but the vertigo took over the day.

I'm Late...Again!

Sorry Karen! You deserve a gold star for patience! I had a huge exam last night and my life has been completely unmanageable for the past week. But I'm heading out today to pick up a few last minute things. I hate being late twice in a row. At least I'm consistent...

It will be in the mail tomorrow or Friday. And I promise it will be worth the wait :)


Exchange mailed...

I mailed Michele's package on Monday so hopefully it won't take too long to make it's destination!

Happy stittching....

Autumn Exchange from Joan

Well, Joan spoiled me rotten in this Autumn exchange! She stitched a beautiful little Halloween sampler which she then finished into a box top. Inside the box, she tucked in an adorable pair of witch scissors. :) She also sent me an adorable little Halloween tin and a plastic handle tote filled with lots of Halloween goodies, including an adorable needle minder from Kelmscott Designs. I've been eyeing this little guy since it first came out a couple of years ago, so I was thrilled to see it in there. :)

Here are some photos (click for a larger view):

Thank you so much for such a wonderful exchange Joan!! This was my first personal mail at my new home, too. Everything else has just been bills so far. LOL


Happy Fall Faye...

Your exchange is on its way!
