Little Things To Share

I have a couple of little things that I recently stitched, mailed out and have been received... and then I will sneak off to watch the MLB All-Star Game and start my HoE Summer Quaker Exchange.

I heard from Staci this morning that she has received my ornament for a private Christmas Ornament Swap that I am participating in (this month we all send to Staci). My ornament is tiny and delicate, but I am glad that Staci likes it.

Bell Ornament

Jeannette Douglas

Chart in JCS Christmas Ornament Preview Issue, August 2008

32 ct Natural Belfast Linen, DMC Floss & DMC #12 Perle Cotton


And I just discovered that Janaina received a new Crazy Exchange that I mailed out to her on June 30th. I am always worried about mailing anything to Brazil. They don't allow insured packages there, so you need to take your chances. I mailed something to Janaina months ago that never arrived... but June 30th to July 15th isn't too bad for International Priority Mail (??!!)... Anyhow, I think she likes it...
Tiny Toad Fob

The Cricket Collection

Silkweaver 36 ct French Vanilla Swirl Edinburgh Linen, Thread Gatherer Silk 'n Colors, and DMC Floss


....OK, the MLB Parade is ending soon and then game time :-) I am off to start something fun for the Summer Quaker exchange... have a great night, see ya tomorrow! Go American League!!

Stitched on today: Stitched on a Crazy Exchange, finished SBEBB Summer House Exchange and started HoE Summer Quaker Exchange
