Harvest Time Exchange from Melissa

I received my Harvest Time Exchange from Melissa today. She sent a lovely package. I really love the JBW French Country series, and was thrilled to see that she stitched me a cube (so nicely made) using the Pumpkin design. I just love it!


And here is a photo of her entire exchange for me. She spoiled me with some really, really wonderful treats! She sent me La-D-Da's Harvest Angel off of my wishlist - I am very excited about this. I have been so tempted to order this chart a few times recently. Thank you so much Melissa!!

I heard from Dawn today that she has received my wee little birthday gift for her. She received it very quickly, and I had sent it on early... her birthday is not for about a week or so still. I noticed she stitches a few biscornus, so I made one for her too:

Berryscornu

Periphaeria Designs

28 ct Mushroom Lugana, Caron Fiesta Wildflowers, Copper Bead-It Beads


And, more progress on Deb's RR to show tonight :-) I have finished my house block and now just have my tombstone to do... and maybe dress this up a little more. I shall have to take a few steps back from it and look to see what else I can add. I know that Deb does not expect me to do more, but yet there are some ideas in my head...

Stitched on today: Stitched on a gift, finished USEBB Eye of the Needle Exchange, and Deb's Neighborhood Round Robin

I love what you have done with Deb's block. I really like the willow in the back...one of my favorite types of tree.

Michelle said...

Just wanted to let you know I loved your comment on the little cat blog about being the Charlie brown of the silkweaver bag.

One of my friend got disapointed too. She got dull colors. Mine was so great I ordered a second one and got: daffodil (I had one already ... ), antique gold and colors hard to use. I got really disapointed. I learned my lesson for next year ... I had read your comments about a bag you had gotten in 2005. I didn't know you had ordered one this year ;)

You stitch pretty well for a 251 years old lady ;) lol Made me laugh (I just turned 20 years old myself :p I know it's pretty rare to deliver a 1st baby at 9 yo ...)

I check your blog often (now in google reader) and are amazed at all you stitch :-o It's really beautiful!

Debs RR is looking great, love the animals in it. Despite what you say I love the box top that you made for the Autumn Exchange, it looks gorgeous.

Old Yankee Stitcher said...

Great little pumpkin box and lots of great goodies. Your biscornu is lovely the thread used is so beautiful. Your contribution to the RR is looking good.

Von said...

What a great exchange from Melissa; that box is nicely finished. Your wee little biscornu is very cute too!

Deb's NRR is looking great. It's so much fun watching these neighborhoods develop!
