Autumn Exchange from ???
I received this lovely Autumn Exchange from somebody on the Crazy Exchange Board today. Unfortunately, the sender did not enclose a note in the envelope, and the envelope was destroyed badly enough to make the return address unreadable. I do know the sender is from Europe, as the postage was paid in Euros. I posted to the board to see who sent this to me and am awaiting a response. Such a pretty needlebook and fob! DH loves the chocolate... the decorative pins, however, were crushed by the postal service. Thank you, (mystery) exchange partner! ***Edited: Mystery solved! Thank you Pascale!!
I never show my stash shopping in my blog... who wants to see how well I can shop? Isn't it more fun to see stitched items? But I did want to show this beauty that came yesterday, as I don't know how many of you know this kit is available on The Drawn Thread website right now... good price too.... the chart only comes out in November, but I wanted the kit because it calls for silks ;-) It is stunning in person!
My little Lily fell asleep watching TV tonight... shame on you, Lily - don't forget you have to turn the TV off before you fall asleep...
Kevin Costner has broken into the world of country music now... Hmmmm..... what do we all think? Should movie actors try to "do it all" and become country music singers too? The mind boggles.... can't say I care much for his voice.
Stitched on today: Finished HoE Mattress Pincushion Exchange, and stitched on A Quaker Christmas (but need to frog most of that out... watching Red Sox at the same time, utterly distracted!) **Mailed out Halloween Exchange to Becky today
