Autumn Exchange from Sharon


I received the Autumn Exchange from Sharon today. She is my sender for the Seasonal Exchangers group - awesome group! I am sooo lucky to have Sharon as my sender. She spoiled me rotten. She stitched me the cutest little tasseled pillow, which she informs me is Autumn House by The Trilogy (I adore The Trilogy, Sharon!). We both think the little buttons on this design are sooo cute!! And that was not all - Sharon hit my wish list very hard! She sent me three charts that I wanted very, very badly! Then also sent me two fabulous skeins of autumnal Silk 'N Colors! Wow, Sharon! I am overwhelmed. Thank you again :-) I am so glad Alexis is feeling better too!
Forward progress.... plugging away again tonight on Houses of Hawk Run Hollow :-) The photo may look fuzzy - it is really because I almost finished all the backstitching in light blue (VC Lace Agate, actually) over the orange (VC Pumpkin) stitches of the house... just a little bit of fence and the rest of the night sky left now!

Thank you to those who sent well wishes for Mike today. His much anticipated meeting appeared to go well today - the outcome of it has not yet been determined... if you can, please keep the positive thoughts going for him. We both appreciate it!

My sincerest condolences go out, and my heart is so heavy, for Michelle (Cozy Egg) and her DH over the loss of their beloved Hamlet over the weekend. {{HUGS}} for both of them. Losing a pet is so very difficult.

Stitched on today: Houses of Hawk Run Hollow **Mailed out a gift today
