Prairie Schooler Exchange from Staci... and a gift from Debby too


I just received this lovely HoE Prairie Schooler Exchange from dear Staci today. Staci stitched me one of those neat thread holders using one of Prairie Schooler's really sweet freebie designs. It is so nicely put together too. And she also sent several pieces of really pretty fabrics, a whole bunch of tassels for fobs and a pretty Liz Navickas needle roll chart. How lucky am I, really?? Thank you so much Staci!!!
Also, before I forget yet again... the wonderful and super sweet Debby and her DH, Mike, sent me this adorable pincushion for my birthday :-) I received it a while ago, and am ashamed it is only being shown off now. At first, I just could not figure out who had sent it to me... it was a bit of a fun comedy of errors, but eventually I figured it out. Then we had days on end of rain when I got home from work. Last night I was using it and remembered I had not posted it yet. So I grabbed it after work today and got a photo. I really want Debby and Mike to know how much I love it - you are both so sweet! Thank you again, so very much!

And now, off to start a MAW exchange... this time a Scissor Pocket for Melissa....

Stitched on today: Started MAW Scissor Pocket for Melissa **Mailed out a PIF gift today

Hi Carol

I am glad that you like the pin cusion. Jerry machined the little spools and the wooden stand for this. It is me that is still learning how to do some of these kinds of things but I am glad that you like it! I hope that your family is doing better and I am sorry for the loss in your family as well. Have a wonderful weekend and hope to see you soon!

And that pincushion is adorable I see from Debby that it was hand-made - there are such talented people about!
