4th of July Exchange from Julianne

I have received the most wonderful 4th of July Exchange from Julianne! Julianne stitched this gorgeous pincushion, which is filled with something fantastic, perhaps crushed shells, and I have already put this beauty to work! She nicely stitched and finished :-)
She also sent me all of these goodies - and apparently there is even still something on order coming from an ONS too! Oh my, Julianne, you have spoiled me! Those notecards are stunning! Thank you soooo much! The soap is delicious and fresh - I just love Crabtree & Evelyn!

4th of July Exchange for Marie

I heard from Marie yesterday that she has received my 4th of July Exchange for her. I wanted to stitch her something... different... but with my work schedule as it turned out to be again this month, I had to squeeze this in, so I ended up making a pinkeep. Fortunately, she told me she likes it - whew!!! Here it is:
Glory Pinkeep

SanMan Originals

32 ct Natural Belfast Linen, DMC Floss - changed colors from the charted pastels to traditional Independence Day Colors

... and the rest of her treats!

Glad you like it Marie! I received a lovely exchange from Julianne yesterday. It was too rainy to photograph it, so I think I will go try now while we have sun and post it tomorrow ;-)

Just Nan Exchange from Georgie

I received this sweet HoE Just Nan Exchange from Georgie a few days ago, and as I told Georgie, it has been raining absolute buckets here for about 10 days now. We have about two more days of it still ahead, but I did spot a little bit of daylight in the window when I got home tonight, so I grabbed the opportunity to take a snap! At last, I can share it! She stitched this teeny, tiny biscornu and made it into a fob for me. I cannot recall what chart she said she used :-( But, it is adorable! And she also sent some sweet smelling lilac & lavender soap too :-) Thank you, Georgie, for this lovely exchange!

Life remains hectic here... I am so far behind in blogging, stitching and email, that I am so lonely for my friends! But I understand that my virtual disappearance leads to not getting emails, so I will hang in there until I am free enough to be hanging back around with you again! In the meantime, dear ones, don't forget to pick up some quite excellent summer reading here:

This morning I received my Frosty Friends Exchange from Outi! This was the last exchange run on the SBEBB, and Outi needed some extra time to get hers to me - it was well worth the wait! She sent me this lovely M Designs needleroll with what she says are a few of her own modifications...
As well as all these amazing goodies!!!
Thank you so much Outi!

Also, my DH wants to thank everyone who bought Ginghers from him from his online store - he does still have the Robertas, Sarahs and Freedoms available at
