An Overdue Post of exchanges and finishes

I have been busy and wanted to get some exchanges posted. So hang on this is going to be a long post!!!

Pumpkin Patch Exchange

I received My Pumpkin Patch exchange today from Jean. She stitched part of an LHN design--The Harvesters and made me a tin topper with a magnetic bottom for the needles she sent with the exchange. She also included a chart from my wish list--Elizabeth's Designs--
Christmas Alphabet, plus a chart from Heart in Hand--Autumn Bird and the buttons for it. It was a wonderful surprise to come home to today.
Thank you Jean.

I also received my Christmas Fair and Square today from Lynda. She stitched JBW's--Christmas Motif Sampler II. I can't wait to finish it into an ornament.
Thank you Lynda.

Private Thanksgiving Exchange
On Friday I received this Thanksgiving Exchange from Heather. I am in a small group private exchange. Heather put together this great exchange. She stitched a cute hanging pillow and also sent some fabric, two tins, some rick rack a skein of overdyed floss and Harvest wood plaque. I have already used the candle!!
Thank you Heather for the great exchange.

Autumn Fair and Square

I received my Autumn Fair and Square from Karen October 27. She stitched some really cute acorn squares.

And as you can see I have already finished them into a box type finish. I think they turned out pretty cute.
Thank you Karen. I meant to post these sooner, I apologize for that.

Thanksgiving Fair and Squres
These squares arrived on November 5 from Mary Kathryn.

And here is the finished product. I also like the way these squares finished up.
Thank you Mary Kathryn. I also meant to post these squares sooner.

Round 10 Fair and Square

Again on November 7th I received my Round 10 squares from Heidi. Isn't he a cute little guy?

And here again is the end results of the finish. Pretty cute.
Thank you Heidi.

Ok, I believe I have posted all of the wonderful exchanges that I have received in the last two weeks. I want to Thank each one of you for your stitching talents. I appreciate all of these exchanges.

What a lovely collection of seasonal stitching you have received. I love the pretty little tin. The design Jean chose is perfect for it. This is such a wonderful season for colour. It's so interesting seeing all the different ways stitching can be finished. Yours really is inspiring.
Best wishes, Angela
