A Couple of Things to Share

I participated in the SBEBB's Grateful Hearts Exchange and received an absolutely beautiful biscornu from Carol. She stitched the "Four Little Hearts" by Indigo Rose on both sides of the biscornu and she edged it with delicate seed beads. It is so pretty! My picture just doesn't do it justice. You can also see the wonderful goodies that Carol included with her lovely exchange piece. Thanks again, Carol for a lovely gift that I will always treasure.

My partner for the exchange was Chris and I chose to stitch her JBW's French Country Love. I finished it as a small project keeper with a pocket. It arrived safely in the UK and Chris liked my choice.

Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your taking time to visit my blog.

Autumn's In The Air

This is the exchange that I sent to Marie for the Autumn portion of our seasonal exchange. It is another Prairie Schooler design and I just loved the colors in it. It is supposed to be finished with a flat bottom, but I haven't mastered that technique.

I'm very pleased that Marie likes the exchange! It is so much fun to put an exchange package together. I always try to give things that I would love to receive myself. I'm just thrilled that Marie likes scented soaps because I love shopping for those types of things.

I hope you are all enjoying the cooler, shorter days of autumn. I know that many of you are very busy stitching Christmas gifts. Enjoy your stitching time and thank you for stopping by to read my blog. :)
