Needleroll Exchange and Freebie Exchange!
What a busy mail day today! I received two exchanges today. The first one is the Needleroll Exchange from the FGBB. I received this pretty needleroll from Terry - the first one she has ever made, and it is beautifully finished! She also sent me the Liz Turner Diehl Dutch Garden chart from my wishlist (awesome!!) and some edgings for future finishings! Thank you Terry - what a lovely exchange! Thank you again Terry!
And, I also received the Freebie Exchange from the SBEBB today! I received this adorable thread keeper from Karine. I have wanted a thread keeper for some time, and now I have one I will surely cherish. Karine also sent me some wonderful fabric, some finishing materials and a super cute cat figurine (she clearly studied my blog a bit)! Thank you Karine! The mail treats did not stop there! I received a birthday package from KarenV today as well. I had a lousy day today, so I could not resist also opening this up - I hope Karen doesn't mind! She stitched me this lovely, petite biscornu and sent me a LHN/CC thread pack from my wishlist. How sweet, Karen! Thank you - I shall also cherish this biscornu! (I received a couple of other gifts today too, but will share them tomorrow - that way I will have something fun to put in tomorrow's blog). And lastly, I put a little bit of a start in on Annemarie's Neighborhood Round Robin (the 2006-2007 group) tonight. I had a bit more done than you can see here... but if you click to enlarge and look closely enough, you will see where I frogged the frame of the house out. Although An already knows what chart I decided to use, as I was stitching this, it just didn't look right to me. The frame of the house was stitched in light purple (DMC 210). Now, that is just not an An color! So, I decided to pull that out while this was still in its beginnings and will visit my stash very soon to pull a better color out - something in the blue or burgundy ranges she likes - which other stitchers in the RR already keyed themselves into :-) I don't think this RR will take me too long to stitch - it will be home soon An!!!
One more day at work tomorrow, and I am off until next Wednesday!!! Yay!!!
Stitched on today: Finished a gift, and Annemarie's Neighborhood Round Robin
