Halloween Exchange from Chris

I received the USEBB Halloween Exchange from Chris today :-)
Chris stitched me this really neat cube using a Hinzeit design. I love how it is so elegant and delicate... yet is still Halloween and still says Boo! She did a lovely job on it!!

And here are all the wonderful goodies she sent me - so generous! Chris sent me some adorable fabric, some spooky ribbon, some Halloweeny Weeks Dye Works floss, a cute ghost button, a sweet porcelain ghost and some whimsical ghost notepaper... all packed into a super cute felt jack-o-lantern tote! Thank you Chris, I love it all!!! This is the second exchange I have received from Chris in as many months. She has totally spoiled me, and I hope to get her name for an exchange so that I can spoil her back!

And, tonight's forest progress is... four birds, a tree, a rabbit and a bee!

I haven't been blogging about this, as it is not my style to - but since I am getting so many "where are you, how are you?" emails, I will share that I am just a bit under the weather with what looks like a virus - bad headaches, very sore throat, sinus pressure and nausea (which is abating). I have been stitching, but barely on the internet/computer at all. I am feeling a bit better today, so hopefully I will be in touch again soon! Thanks for all the sweet emails!

Stitched on today: Finished Crazy Exchange project, and And A Forest Grew

Do take care - sounds like you have had something nasty. Your halloween exchange is super cute and your forest is looking wonderful. It is amazing how much you get done, even when ill.

Your Halloween exchange is adorable!
I'm so sorry you're not feeling up to par just now. My DH suggested I stay home this morning from our Thanksgiving service since it appears I've picked up a miserable cold and sore throat as well. Perfect excuse for doing nothing but stitching!
Take care and get lots of rest.

Kathy said...

"Boo" is so cute and finshed so nicely.

I am sure that you will continue to feel better so long as your Red Sox win. LOL. Go Red Sox!!!!

Lovely exchange, the Boo cube is really cute.

We, too, have been dealing with that particular bug around our house...my older daughter had it a couple weeks ago, my younger one had it the week after (although not as bad...thankfully!). Fortunately, hubby and I missed it (knock on wood!), but apparently it's going around everywhere.

Hope you get to feeling better...and if it's the same thing my girls had, some of the "lighter" symptoms will hang around for a couple weeks. :-(

Sally said...

Hope you are feeling much better soon.

sugardoll said...

Hope you're feeling better. ((hugs))

Dianne said...

Sorry about your bug! And never feel funny about talking about it as it's part of life. Goodness knows I do. And it's a good record for me to keep track of sinus problems, etc.
Your stitching looks fab as usual!

Leena said...

KaLu said...
