Harvest House Exchange for Cari

Good news tonight! I was beginning to wonder about the Harvest House Exchange I sent off to Cari. But tonight I saw on the SBEBB that she left a message that she has been ill and had received this a little bit ago... so, now I am relieved and I can share it :-)

Fall's Notice Fob

Blackbird Designs

Lakeside Linens 40 ct Mocha Linen, Weeks Dye Works Floss

This is a total fluke and surely unprecedented, but for some reason I took a photo of the entire exchange before I mailed it out. After surfing Cari's blog a bit, I discovered she likes Blackbird Designs. She even had this Awake the Dawning Day chart on her wishlist, so I got it for her and kept with the theme by stitching her a BD design. It was fun, and so cute that I really wanted to keep it! Cari and I have the same initials, thus I personalized it with a CS on the front like in the model on BD's website... they mean Cari S and Carol S both at the same time :-) Cari, I am so glad you liked this!
And... some more time on Bine's RR tonight. This photo shows the colors much more accurately!!

It's the weekend now for me! Wahoo!

Stitched on today: Autumn Quaker Exchange project, and Bine's Neighborhood Round Robin

Bine's RR must be turning into one of my all time favourite neighbourhoods in stitching ever seen!
Lovely fob! Did you stitch it over one? It looks so delicate!

Great job on the BD fob! I really like that freebie. I also like the idea of adding the addition theme to the exchange to really personalize it.

Carol - that fob is absolutely amazing! The design is perfect. You gave such a wonderful exchange, and put so much thought into what you stitch and all of the littel extras.

The picture of the RR is wonderful. Glad you were finally able to get one showing the colors more accurately.
