New Crazy Exchanges

I have been busily stitching away on new exchanges for the Crazy Exchange, and my two latest ones arrived at their European destinations within the past twenty four hours, so since tonight will be about trying to finish my HoE Needle Roll Exchange, I will show these now... first I sent one to Belgium...

Garden Alphabet "P" Fob

Prairie Schooler

Unknown 32 ct Belfast Linen, DMC Floss

Stitched for Pascale


Then I sent one to The Netherlands... Annemiek had recently left a comment after seeing my Halloween stitching that she felt the urge to pull hers out too, so I could not resist a little Halloween themed exchange for her...


Spooky Time Floss Ring Tag

Lavender Wings

32 ct Dirty Belfast Linen, Weeks Dye Works Floss

Stitched for Annemiek


New ballast has been ordered for the Ott-Lite... should be here early next week, and I hope that solves the problem!

Oh! And some have asked what floss drops are... Here are some in Carol's blog: Carol's Floss Drops. I have been told you can use punches. I stopped at Michael's today. I found a tag punch that is cute, but cannot find a teardrop shaped one... I could put a circle inside the tag, but want to still look for a teardrop like Carol uses...

Stitched on today: Finished HoE Needle Roll Exchange, and stitched on Halloween Fairy

The floss ring tags are a great idea. They look super!

I hope you manage to get your lamp sorted out soon. I know how uncomfortable it is stitching without one.

I just love that P fob. I'll have to get that chart. It's probably because I love grey green. I also love the fabric that you are stitching Corbett's Halloween Fairy on. I ordered the "recommended" fabric, but it is TOO dark and TOO green. I'll have to check if I have a Silkweaver Solor close to the color you choose.

I'm just dropping in real quick to say "hi"! Reading and commenting on my favorite blogs has really taken a back seat for me lately, so I sympathize with your big work project and its impact on your blog reading.

As always, love seeing your great work - hugs!
