Celebrate Summer

These are the squares I sent to Gaby for the summer round of Fair and Square. They were a joy to stitch!

I hope you are all enjoying the summer!

The Golden Touch of Goldie

We recently finished up the first year of Seasonal Exchanges on Becky's Seasonal Exchange Board. I was the lucky recipient of Goldie's stitching and finishing. Each of the projects that she sent had both specialty stitches and fibers in them. It was always a delightful surprise to open the exchanges that she sent. She's an amazing finisher as well, and each of her projects demonstrated a different style of finish. Here are photos containing the four lovely projects that she did for me.

I wanted to say thank you to Goldie for all the time and effort that she put into her exchanges for me, so I sent her a stitched decoration for the 4th of July.

Little House Needleworks Round Robin

I have never mentioned on my blog that I'm currently stitching in a round robin with seven other ladies.  I just finished the second round and I thought it would be nice to share a picture of the project that I just worked on.  This lovely round robin belongs to Nicki. She said that she wanted a house in the center square and I was happy that it was still vacant.   I decided to stitch the house from Home of a Needleworker Too.  I substituted DMC floss because that's what the group decided upon.

Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope you have a safe and peaceful Independence Day.
