Spring Exchange for Myrna

I heard from Myrna today that she has received my Spring Exchange for her. For the past year, I have had the pleasure of stitching for Myrna and sending her treats for the Seasonal Exchangers group. This ends the first year, and I have a new victim for next year ;-) I had such a great time stitching for Myrna this past year. She is such a sweetie! I won't go into showing the whole gift package... but I did send her these two stitched gifts...

Spring Biscornu

Barbara Ana Designs

Sassy's Fabbys 28 ct Spring Shamrocks Lugana, DMC and DMC Color Variations Floss


Hello Spring Pinkeep

Lizzie Kate

32 ct Sunburst Yellow Belfast Linen, GAST and WDW Floss


I am still a bit shaken by an almost-accident that almost took place on my way home from the seminar yesterday. Some woman in a mini van was eager to get her iced coffee at Dunkin' Donuts yesterday, and was cutting across two lanes of traffic on a busy road near the airport... right in my path... yesterday. A near miss. I jammed on my brakes and still cannot believe that I was not rear ended by the traffic behind me. Rattled!

OK.... secret exchange stitching time for me....

Stitched on today: Stitched on Patriotic Exchange projects

Lovely Spring exchanges for Myrna.
Glad you are safe - some people should not be allowed on the roads!

BeckySC said...

((((((hugs)))))

Just gorgeous Stitching for Myrna, Carol! I love that Biscornu - very nicely done.

You'd think the cost of fuel would keep the yahoo's off the road (or does it make things worse, I wonder) Glad to hear you are safe!

They are just fantastic Carol!! I love the biscornu.

Becky K in OK said...

Tessa said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous pinkeep.
Phew - near misses are never nice, they do leave you a bit shaken - you were very lucky {{{{{{Carol}}}}}}

Tessa said...

Meant to say; gorgeous, gorgeous stitching, both pinkeep and biscornu :)

You poor thing, I hate the way near misses leave me feeling.

Kim B said...

Beautiful pieces!! Lucky Myrna!!

Near misses are terrifying! So glad you didn't get hit, though!

Mel in Dubai said...

I love the biscornu and pinkeep you did for Myrna - such wonderful bright colours!

I am glad you are safe - unfortunately that type of driving behaviour is very common on the roads here (mostly by expats who should know better too!) - you need eyes in the front, back and side of your skull, and quick reflexes!!

Mylene said...

Great stitching pieces for Myrna.

So glad to hear you are safe.

karenv said...

Both pieces are gorgeous Carol, so colourful and cheerful!

Glad you're OK, there are some real idiots out there on the road (but never a traffic cop when you need one!)

Karoline said...

Cute exchanges for Myrna, congratulations

{{{{Hugs}}}} Why do some people leave their brains behind when they get in a car :\

Barbara said...

Lovely stitching for Myrna. :)

Glad you were okay in the traffic situation. Yikes!

Heather said...

Lovely finishes Carol. It amazes me how you find the time to come up with all these wonderful gifts, plus your own stitching.

livnlaf said...

Okay...that's the cutest biscornu I've seen yet. Very cute and Myrna is very lucky to be on the receiving end of such a nice stitch.
The driver was probaby talking on their cell phone too! Driving defensively is the only way to go now a days.

Hazel said...

Thats a great biscornu and pinkeep and lovely fabric colours too. x

Andrea said...

A lovely spring exchange for Myrna.

Cathie said...

It's so nice, I love the biscornu !!

Jenn said...

What a beautiful biscornu! You did a great job Carol. I'm glad your ok. I think everyone should stay home on Friday the 13. it's just to crazy a day.

Cathy B said...

I'm glad to hear you are okay and that there was no accident. So many drivers are so distracted and inconsiderate these days!

Your exchange for Myrna is wonderful! Both are very cute, but I must say that the biscornu is my favorite! :)

DaisyGirl said...

So glad you weren't hurt! Crazy women! What was she thinking? your biscornu looks beautiful! I don't know how to make one yet!

Angela said...

Both are beautiful exchanges that you sent, your biscornu is lovely!

Juanita said...

What pretty exchanges. I love that biscornu!!

Sharon said...

Gorgeous exchanges! I love the fabric for the pinkeep!

Chiloe said...

I'm glad nothing happened to you ... I'm always surprised how people can put others at risks (and sometimes be mad at us even though it's them who made the mistakes ... )

You made such beautiful gifts !!!

Kathy said...

Wow all your stitching is lovely as always Carol, I am hoping to get back to Spring again some day soon, I ahve a ton of birthday presents to organise first tho.

Hugs xxxx

Yuko said...

It's absolutely lovely design, and I would like to make one for myself!!
Your works are always perfect!!

Olenka's Stitches said...

Glad you are OK.
Gorgeous exchange for Myrna, both pieces are so bright and cheerful.

Lynn said...

That sounds very scary Carol! I'm glad you were alright! It never ceases to amaze me how some people drive. Last week I watched a woman putting on her mascara while she was driving on one of our major highways.Incredibly stupid!!
Your exchanges are lovely. I just received a couple of Barbara Ana designs recently. They're so colourful!

Kathy said...

That biscornu is so cute!!

It seems that driving is such an adventure. Glad you did not have an accident.

Michelle said...

Glad to hear you were not in an accident! Frightening! Both pieces for Myrna are gorgeous - I especially love that biscornu!
