Greeting fellow friends, here is the exchange I received from Kim B. The ornament she stitched for me is a BBD and she backed it with a lovely lace and piece of ribbon with her name and the date. Thank you Kim for a wonderful spring treat :)

As I get ready to decorate my seasonal tree in the craft room, I know I will have a very special place for this cute spring themed pin pillow.....

Spring Has Sprung! Exchange from Karen!!

I got my spring exchange from my mystery partner - Karen - on Monday! I would have posted sooner but Cuddle Bug suddenly came down with a fever and before I knew it I was thinking to myself "what is that nagging feeling I have that I was supposed to do something..." So without further delay, check it out:

Karen stitched Eat, Sleep, Stitch by Cherry Wood Designs for me and finished it into a darling little pillow. How perfect is the finishing fabric for this design?!

She also included a tin of mints, 2 skeins of Needle Necessities, beautiful blue finishing fabric, green-blue ric rac, and a needleminder and pins that she made herself. Here are close-ups of the needleminder and pins. Aren't the lovely?

I am pleased to report that it has been gorgeous here the past few days! We got a taste of spring. I told Karen I think she must have packed some beautiful Arizona sunshine in with this exchange! Unfortunately, DH is reporting that we are supposed to have highs in the 40s for the next few days. Oh well :)

Love seeing everyone else's packages coming in!! Happy spring stitchers!!

Thank you Kim B.

Kim thank you for a beautiful ornament I just adore the lace on the back. And nope I do not have that BBD :) And I look forward to planting the seeds in that cute bucket. We are having awful rain and gray skies right now so I will have to wait to take some photos when I have better lighting.
Thank you again

Spring has arrived from Natasha!

I rec'd a very cute pillow and some very pretty fabric and a cute bunny! but computer and camera are not cooperating today, will try again tomorrow to upload pics.

Thanks sooo much Natasha! I love it!

Spring is Here!

And blogger is finally cooperating.  I've been trying to show off my goodies for the last two days! 

Take a look at all the wonderful package that arrived from Nan/Diane........

She stitched up not one, but two beautiful Prairie Schooler designs.  And her finishes......well they are amazing in themselves.  Come, take a closer look!

These cute little guys are now hanging out on the fireplace mantle where the Christmas/Hanukkah Stockings usually hang.  I love the bit of Spring that they bring to the room. 

Oh, and by the way Diane, I manage to hide the chocolate from my Hubby and I was able to eat it before he found it. LOL!

Thanks again!  I'm really looking forward to June!

~~~~Photos coming soon~~~

I said a big "YIPPPEEE" when I called home and they said I have an exchange package that came in the mail.....

Photos will be coming soon as I get home Thursday~~~~

Thanks Bunches Faye!

Faye's Exchange Arrived Wednesday!
Me being the bone head that I am posted on my blog but forgot to post here.  Do you ever wonder where your mind is?  I think mine takes way too many "coffee" breaks.
Without further ado.....feast your eyes on this wonderful exchange Faye sent. 

Faye stitched Tis Red by La D DA from the JCS ornament issue and finished it into a cutie patootie pincushion with the most unique trim.  She included some great goodies in the package.  A stitcher's journal with matching note cards, her favorite batting, finishing fabric and ribbon, fibers and organizer bags. 
Her "green" theme will be well used.  I appreciate all the time and effort you put into this exchange Faye!

My Exchange Is In The Mail

My exchange was posted today.  Should be there Thursday.
I hope you enjoy it...........(insert name here)  :-)

Happy Monday everyone!

Package is on the way~~~

Just a quick note to say my package just got mailed out at the post office!~~  Hope my exchange partner likes it!!!  Faye

Are You Ready?

Tomorrow is mailing day! I can't believe how quickly it came. The good news is that I finished my exchange piece just in time. The bad news? I wasn't able to get all the "goodies" that I had in mind for the exchange. There's always next time....

I should have my package in the mail tomorrow so the mailman stalking can begin! I do hope my partner enjoys her package!

Happy Stitching!
