Great Exchanges Today!

I came home from work today and there were two big boxes sitting on the kitchen counter. DH announced that there were "lots of gifts" for me to open... there sure were! Two exchanges arrived today!

The first one is from Becky. Becky did quite a few personal Halloween exchanges this year, and I was lucky enough to get to do one with her. She has mailed early - I will get mine to her by our October 10 date ;-) Wow, Becky stitched me this fantastic box! Better pics of it are in her blog. The lining fabric is adorable. She also sent the goodies you see here too. Thank you so much Becky - what fun!!
And, more fun - I received an SBEBB Autumn House Exchange from Edgar today too. Just look at this pretty needle roll. This is SWEET!! Thank you so much Edgar - that is one of my favorite PS designs (and we all know how much I love PS!!). And... typical Edgar, sent tons of goodies to spoil me... pretty fabric, Belle Soie silks, pretty spools of ribbon, a packet of California Poppy seeds, a California magnet... and what I have been told are very yummy chocolate mints (yes, DH had tried them! Edgar knew he would!!). Thank you so much Edgar!! Edgar has drawn my name in exchanges many times this year... 3, I think! Poor Edgar, he must think I am the only person on the planet to stitch for lately! I hope to get his name soon to spoil him too, although I do get to stitch him an ornament next month for the Christmas Ornament Swap ;-)

Wow... I gotta go back to my secret stitching. I am not time with my gifts and exchanges, but the list is looooooong right now! See ya!!

Such sweet stitching from Becky. I went over to her site. It sure looks very classic and elegant. Congratulations Carol.

Bosses is not here. Out de-flooding the whole road. Very bad flooding all over the island and F1 night race is doing test drive today.

PS needleroll is beautiful too. You are so lucky. I am so happy seeing so many exchanges on your site.

You motivates me alot but its my bed after whole day at work and Adam's school work that puts any stitching off. But by looking at your site....I felt contented.

Take care and smile always
