Two Exchanges in One Day

Big mail day today - two exchanges arrived this morning...

First is the Christmas in July Exchange from Amy. Amy stitched me this great ornament... and hit my wish list too. Not only did she send me a chart I wanted, she also sent me the linen and the silk to stitch it. Thanks so much Amy!

Today I also received the Feathered Friends Exchange from the SBEBB. My sender was Lynn. Lynn stitched me a Valerie Pfeiffer pinkeep, and also sent me a Valerie Pfeiffer kit. I really like her birds quite a lot. She also sent me other fun treats like ribbon, DMC floss, Kreinik braid and pretty lilac finishing fabric. Thanks Lynn.

Oh, and I finally started my Halloween Neighborhood RR for the Witching for Stitching RR - sorry about the really up close photo, but I really didn't get much done on this tonight. I was going to use a neutral fabric, but then saw this Stormy Night Belfast by Enchanted Fabrics in my stash. It is from their FOTM and so I figured I would give it a try... it is a rather bold fabric, so I hope it will work out OK!

Stitched on today: Finished a gift, started my Halloween RR **Mailed Michelle's Neighborhood RR to An today, and mailed Scissor Pocket for MAW Exchange to Terry today

What great exchanges you received, such lovely pieces and great new goodies to add to your stash. Your RR looks to be off to a good start too, I like the fabric you picked.

BTW, did you see the new one And a Garden Grew? I thought of you as soon as a saw it since your And a Forest Grew turned out so lovely and you enjoyed the different designs in it so much.
