About Exchanges


Well... my plans to get a better photo of my HoE Mattress Pincushion Exchange from Jill this morning were totally foiled by a dark, dingy morning. I had to settle for using this photo that was taken on my kitchen counter in the dull grey of the morning before I left for work. What a pretty LHN pincushion she made for me. And a stunning counting pin... and what a generous extra - a stitching lamp! Jill said she felt badly reading about my Ott-Lite misadventures recently, so she sent me a back up! Now, how cool (and overly generous) is Jill? Thank you so much - I am utterly blown away!

Then today I heard from Laurie that she received my return exchange for her as part of the Crazy Exchange BB. I was in the mood to continue to stitch on Halloween themed items...

Gorgeous scissor fob, and I love the mattress pin cushion that you made for Andrea. You are right, you are far too critical of your own work ;).

That's a lovely exchange you sent out, and indeed a remarkably generous one you received with a back up light! ENJOY! :D

I have this exact same clip-on magnifier. I’ve had an Ott Floor lamp for a number of years, but in recent time, I’ve needed some more magnification. This light/magnifier fit the bill perfectly – I have mine clipped onto the pole for the Ott Floor lamp. It’s great because it is so portable – I can take it with me if I go away for the weekend – I can’t do that with the floor lamp! That was very generous of Jill to send it to you!
