Spring Exchange for Cathy

Year number two of the Seasonal Exchange run by BeckySC is now officially underway. I received a wonderful email from Cathy this morning, letting me know that my Spring Exchange for her arrived safely in Australia. (Cathy and I are partners for this year, and we are in opposite seasons... so while autumn approaches here in New England, I got to stitch her goodies to welcome spring in Australia!). I had emailed Cathy recently asking her if it was OK if I sent her items that were not necessarily exactly about the season, perhaps something in the colors of the season instead... she gave me the green light... thanks Cathy! So, I sent....
Red Desert Scissor Pocket

The Cat's Whiskers Design Studio

28 ct Lilac Cashel Linen, Sugar Maple Fabrics Candy Floss Ltd Edition Color


And... just to send her something that actually said "spring" on it ;-)....

Spring Fob

Trail Creek Farm

32 ct Vintage Country Mocha Belfast Linen, Weeks Dye Works Floss


... And all of the goodies for her!! Cathy is fun to shop for. She let me know it is hard for her to get Just Cross Stitch and Cross Stitch & Needlework magazines by her... so I am going to be taking care of her this year! :-) So glad you like your exchange Cathy - I am already thinking about your Summer Exchange! And have fun at the class with Janie of The Cat's Whiskers tomorrow - wish I could be there too!

Thank you all for the lovely comments on Shelley's Halloween Round Robin. I know one stitcher made sure to let me know twice that she does not care for that witch, but it matches Shelley's theme nicely... and how can anyone not just love Barbara Ana Designs?? I couldn't resist and finally bought her Hallowscornu pattern today ;-)

Stitched on today: Stitched a new CE Exchange **Mailed out SBEBB Biscornu Exchange, and mailed out a new CE Exchange today

Both the scissor pocket and the fob are wonderful Carol!

Rowyn said...

I bet Cathy was thrilled to receive your exchange.

I think it would have been nicer for the stitcher to not say anything if she didn't care for your witch. I like her, she's cute and colourful. I look forward to seeing the RR progress.

It's a great exchange you sent to Cathy, she must be utterly happy with it! I did some Barbara Ana Designs, finished the autumn biscornu, just lovely, and so is your witch :)

Gorgeous gifts for Cathy. I think the witch is great - and will fit well with the overall piece. Not really sure why someone would choose to comment (twice) just to say they don't like it.
