HOE and F&S

I'm still a little behind in my postings-as you can see from the
date on the pictures.
I received my HOE Prairie Schooler exchange from Rita
awhile back. She stitched me 2 PS designs! How lucky am I?!
I just love the blue/green scissors she sent with the fob. At last,
my scissor collection is finally growing.

And the entire package-complete with all the great
extras. I especially love the gorgeous Woodland Green
silkweaver fabric! It's so pretty and sparkly! This is my
first fabric from them.
Thanks Rita for an awesome exchange!
A few days later-
I got word from Heather that she finally received the
Fair and square Halloween exchange I sent her.
I stitched her Lizzie Kate's Peek-a-boo from her "Autumn
things" leaflet. I Stitched them on 32 ct Irish cream linen.
I used dmc & dmc color variations floss. I made the signature
square match the design square.
I was late in sending her this exchange and I felt horrible. This
is now a non-goodie group. She waited so patiently, that I just
had to send her something extra.
I hope I don't get in too much trouble but I figured it was
the least I could do for making her wait. So this is what I sent.
Besides, I'm always looking for an excuse to send someone one
of my handmade zipper bags!
I can't believe Christmas is only 32 days away! Yikes!
Take care everyone and thanks for the comments!

Make a wish & a PIF

I am so lucky! In the same week-I got another pinkeep.
I received my first wish from the MAWBB. I wished
for a pinkeep and Angela fulfilled my wish! She picked
the perfect design and colors. My living room is blue &
tan, which is where it sits-proudly displayed. And I love
the saying-especially fitting with Thanksgiving just around
the corner. Thanks again Angela! I love it!

I received my very first pinkeep. I had signed up
for a PIF on Lisa's blog. This is what she sent. She
had no idea I did not own a pinkeep of my own. It
sits right next to the one Angela made me. Thanks
Lisa, I love this little freebie design! Great finishing
btw. I hope to PIF something after the holidays!

Thanks for the comments! Take care everyone!

HOE Prairie Schooler & A return Crazy Exchange!!

Carol sent me this cute little return crazy exchange.
Isn't he adorable? I hung him in my living room with
all my other little Halloweeny things. She does such nice
work. The finishing is just amazing. Click on photo for a
close up of the tiny gold seed beads around the edges.

Batty Jack scissor fob
Design from JCS October 2008

Here are the rest of the goodies she sent me.
I love the marbled scissors! One can never have
enough of those. And chocolate soap-
how did she know I am a chocoholic. It smells good
enough to eat! Thanks again carol!

Here is the HOE Prairie Schooler exchange I sent to
Leigh. I had such a hard time deciding what to stitch
for her.
I finally decided on "Night Owl" from JCS
October 2008. This is one of my favorites
from that issue.
Stitched on 32 ct Irish cream linen (I think),
with dmc threads.

And the rest of the exchange, complete with a
handmade Halloween zipper bag (made by me),
perfect to carry around her Halloween stitching!
I'm so glad she liked what I sent.

Thanks for stopping by! Until next time....
