Beautiful Gifts!


I received such a lovely surprise in the mail today! Anne sent me a belated birthday gift! She sent me this beautiful needleroll that I had recently been drooling over on her blog! She also sent me some overdyed fibers and a cute cat card, both of which I forgot to photograph - sorry! Oh Anne, this was so unexpected and so sweet of you! Thank you - I just love it! Earlier this week, I also received a surprise package from Lelia :-) She sent me a couple of fobs out of friendship. Awww, thanks Lelia! The heart fob is from a kit from when she volunteered at the Midwest Stash Exchange. The kit was for charity. How sweet! And the beaded fob was made by her friend Amanda. Thank you Lelia. I have already emailed you, and you know I really love them :-)
Ta Da - I finished Cathy's Neighborhood Round Robin tonight. Sorry the photo of my block is a bit blurry. I didn't realize it until now, and the project is already packed up and ready to go to An.
And, for the curious amongst you, this is how Cathy's RR looks now. She wanted our houses to reflect the area in which we live... next stop, The Netherlands! I hope you like it Cathy!

Stitched on today: Started F&S squares (yes, I am late, I can barely stand it!) and finished Cathy's Neighborhood Round Robin

Your RR is so unique. I love the Clam House. Very nicely done.
Beautiful gifts, I especially like the needleroll.

The clam shack is so perfect for NH! When I was young (6-12) we used to go up to Hampton for the summer, and that same clam shack--called "The Clam Shack"--was just up the road. Our parents would scrape together change (all the money went into renting the house) and send us over to get a quart of fried clams. Oh, the memories!
