Seasonal Exchanges from Carol!!!

I never posted the wonderful Spring Exchange from Carol! (It has been a mixed up mess around here...) If any of you have been fortunate enough to receive anything stitched from her, you just know how wonderful it is! (And how wonderful Carol is!!)

For the Spring Exchange, Carol again outdid herself!!! She made this adorable pinkeep:

And check out this fantastic biscornu!

Her packages are always jam-packed with goodies!

Spring Exchange

Summer Exchange

Autumn Exchange

Winter Exchange

I have truly been spoiled with these packages! Carol has unknowingly added to my 'need' to own multiple pairs of scissors! There was a pair included in each package! I love pretty scissors!

Carol.... thank you so much for the gifts of your beautiful stitching, and for all your generosity over the past year!

Spring Seasonal Exchange for Amy

Well... a full year has gone by, and I sent my last package off to Amy for the Seasonal Exchangers. I have had a blast stitching up stuff for Amy, and hopefully she has enjoyed my efforts. I received word that Amy had received my last package. I had started off the year stitching a pin keep for Amy from a design by Just Nan, so, I thought it was only fitting that I ended the year the same way. :-) I also included a little bunny design by Imaginating that I stitched into a fob.

Amy has mentioned that she likes pansies, so when I saw this fabric at Joann's, I just knew I had to try to make her a tote! I think it turned out pretty cool....

And, then I did my best to fill the tote with some goodies before I mailed it south... Definitely a 'purple' theme going on!

And now, that the commitment for 2007-2008 has been filled, I get to start on my next victim... oops, partner!! I will be stitching for Sharon for the Seasonal Exchangers for the year 2008-2009!! My mind is already busy planning projects just for her!

Thanks for looking!! Until I get a minute to post again.... keep stitching!

Always & Forever

A few pictures today!

Here is a picture of what I stitched up for my nephew and his bride for their wedding:

LHN Always & Forever
Fabric: Silkweaver 32 ct. Little Lavender
Fiber: CC Aunt Marie's Violet
Did the frame puple, and then a whitewash.

And, here are pictures of my handsome nephew, Doug -- his beautiful bride, Deja, and their daughter, Charlie Ann:

This one is my sister, Reee, Deja, Doug, my BIL Tim, and my Mom.

This is another one I finished up... It was a kit, done on aida. I had stitched it in 2005. but just got around to putting it in the frame. I *think* it was a Linda Myers design.

Yea Detroit Red Wings!!! Winners of the 2008 Stanley Cup!!!

Thanks for stopping by! I really do appreciate it....
