Fair and Square

Today I received my first Fair and Square.

I just love it, and can't wait to finish it off into
something cute.

I really enjoyed this exchange and now I also
have a friend in The Netherlands.

Thanks again Willeke.

Here is what I received:

Keep Stitching.

Just an update

I have been busy this week getting into trouble by signing up for exchanges.

It has become addictive. Looking at blogs, exchanges and BB's.

I have been accepted to two BB's, the Legacy Embroiderers Guild and
the Stitching Bloggers Exchange.

I am excited about both. I just finished round 4 of the Fair and Square and
I am anxiously awaiting my square from the Netherlands. I am signed up
for round 5 and have my daughter for my new partner. I am just getting
ready to mail out the fob I stitched for the Hooked on Exchanging Fob exchange. I have really had fun doing these exchanges.

Now I have signed up for a LHN RR. I have always wanted to do a RR.

Plus I am doing the Spring Home and Garden exchange and the Bride's
Tree ornament SAL.

I think that will keep me busy for awhile. I also have all those other
projects I'd like to do for me and others.

I am looking forward to getting some of that stitching done this weekend, when myself and a couple other of my stitching cronies have a mini stitching retreat at my house.

It will be a great weekend.

Keep stitching!!

Time for a post!!!!

I have been meaning to post since the first of the year but have been busy with family.

We were on a family cruise and sailed out of Miami. So while in Miami I checked out a shop,
The Cross Stitch Here are my purchases: A Hand Painted Needle Case, A Samuel Burch Pouch, I Love Carbs pattern by Needle and Fred,
French Monogram Collection III by Twisted Oaks Designs, Little Brown House and Blackbird Sampler by Heart in Hand.

But I did want to post my first finished project. I started a new project on January 1st,
and even finished the stitching that same day. I was a small project: Carriage House Samplings-- X-Stitch. I have a box that I am going to put it in. Hopefully I will get that done sometime today and post the end result.

I also finished a UFO for my daughter Kelsey. It's a La D Da--Bless This House. I have stitched this pattern 4 times for gifts. I really like this design.

Now that life has somewhat settled down I hope to be posting more.

Keep Stitching!!!
