Another Great Exchange

Today after a quick trip to the LNS with Cathy B, I found this great exchange in my mailbox from Paula C from the Prairie Schooler exchange on the HoE. She stitched this freebie called Stick it Here by Prairie Schooler. It is so cute and stitched and finished wonderfully.
Also included in the package were these goodies: a wooden acorn floss holder, a skein of Sampler Thread called acorn, a piece of fabric for finishing, a small titanium scissors--one of my fetishes, and some lotion and shower gel from Bath and Body Works. What a great exchange. Thank you Paula!!

Had a great night stitching with Jill and Cathy. Still working on exchanges it seems:)
Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Also thanks to those of you who have wished our son Tristan, well while he is in Africa serving in the Marines. So far he is doing well. He tells us it is very hot there--110 degrees during the day, and humid and it is winter over there! He has been able to call almost everyday. I am sure that will change once they are all settled and doing their jobs over there.

Joan,
I just saw you oversized clothespin Prairie Schooler finish on Staci's blog. How cute is that!! You are so creative!! My question is about the size of the clothespin and the fabric count you used. My Michael's in town says they don't have the clothespins, so I have resorted to looking online for them and have found a set at Oriental Trading Co. that are 6". Is that the size you used? I have to make this!! Thanks for your help! You have inspired me!!
