I was very fortunate to have Nancy have my name for the exchange on the USEBB in "For the Birds"! Nancy stitched the most adorable cushion! I already have it hanging by my sewing machine. It is a Loggerhead Shrike, and it has beads all around it and for a hanger! The back has our initials and the year.
Nancy also spoiled me with lots of goodies: fabric, floss, ribbons, notes and sugar-free mints! The perfect feel good package! (in my favorite of colors -- blue!) I love it!!
And, Katrina posted that she had received the package I had sent out for this exchange. I stitched Waxing Moon seasonal bird freebies into a little bellpull. It was stitched over one, on a 25ct. I think it turned out pretty cute! I also added some goodies to her package. I was a little late in mailing it out, so hopefully I will be forgiven. :-)

On life... Chuck (DH) starts his 'new' job at the company next week. Hopefully less stress... but, he will be traveling some. We are trying to get back in a routine. School will be starting soon, and Becca will be a Senior! (Yikes! How did that happen?) I'm trying to stitch some everyday, and if not, at least set aside some time to read.
I hope you are all doing well out there in blogger land! I've heard from a long missed stitcher friend, and hopefully we can get back in touch.
Thanks for reading and your comments... they are appreciated!
