Summer House Exchange from Susan

I received such a lovely SBEBB Summer House Exchange from Susan today. I have to apologize for the really poor quality of the photo below - Susan has much better ones on her blog. Mike and I got home from running around, generally enjoying our vacation week - Chinese lunch out, registered our three cars (ouch, so pricey) and took three of my pieces to the framer as part of his birthday gift to me (the other part is a special treat from Down Sunshine Lane, which I am really, really excited about) - but I just distracted myself! Sorry! Look at this beautiful exchange!
Susan stitched one of my favorite Prairie Schooler designs, and it is so perfectly finished. It adorns my bureau now, so I can admire it every day! She also sent me the yummiest cut of Cappucino belfast linen by Country Stitch, several skeins of GAST that are so perfectly color coordinated, and a box of pretty note cards. I was so happy to receive from Susan :-) Thank you so much for everything - what a treat!

I heard this morning that a new Crazy Exchange that I sent off to Brisbane, Australia has arrived... It was my pleasure to stitch for Tess, a brand new member to the exchange.

Now, as it is beginning to rain (thus the poor picture of the exchange from Susan...), I am going to work on secret exchange stitching ;-)

Stitched on today: Stitched a new CE Exchange, and started SBEBB Redwork Exchange **Mailed MAW Exchange to Simone, and mailed Leslie's Neighborhood Round Robin to Nicole today

What a great exchange you got from Susan. I'm interested in finding out what you got from DSL. :)

Anything from DSL is great! Love the exchange piece - it makes one have a cup of cold iced tea out in the garden. Enjoy your vacation week!
