I received my Fair and Square package

Today when I arrived home I had a package waiting for me.

It was from my daughter. She was my round five Fair and Square
partner. I was quite excited to receive them. They are just great.

She also sent some goodies:

She sent a really cute bag that she made, two charms, 3 packages of crystals, a pattern to make a bag, and two fat quarters of fabric, and two cross stitch patterns.

I have been busy this last weekend finishing some things, one was the squares that I sent off to Melissa today. I will post them once she receives them. I also finished the coasters for my daughter Kelsey, I need to take some pictures of them to post.

Keep Stitching.

Coasters for Kelsey

Of course it has been awhile since I have posted. I have been stitching quite a bit lately, but most of the things are for exchanges, so I can't post those until they are received. I am in about five exchanges now. So far I am just loving stitching for them. Although you do not get much stitching done for yourself!

Three of my Friday night stitching croonies and myself did decide
to stitch some coasters for my newly married daughter Kelsey.
The coasters are from the March 2008 Cross Stitch and Needlework magazine.
Here is the end result of three of the stitched pieces. You can see the fourth piece on Jill's blog. I will post them again when they are finished totally.

I also finished my second ornament for the Bride's Tree Christmas ornament SAL.

Our Friday night group is also stitching-- My Favorite Things Stitching Basket by With My Needle. So far I have the fob totally finished, the waxer pocket is stitched and the Needlebook is about a third stitched. Here is what the fob looks like:

Some of us have even ordered the "Crock" basket for the design. I am quite excited to get this finished. We have had this on our "to do" list for about 5 years!!!

Until next time, Keep stitching.

I need to Post!!

It has been awhile since I have posted. I have been busy stitching.

I had a very good MLK weekend mini retreat. It was spent with Jill,
and was very relaxing and productive.

I managed to get the first of my newest Fair and Square done. Of
course I can't post that.

Then I did get two things finished. One was my X-Stitch box and the other
was the ornament for the Brides Tree Ornament SAL.

Since I have signed up for the LHN RR, I also with the help of
Jill, decided how I was going to start my RR.

This last weekend I did manage to get my Fair and Square piece
that was sent to me by Willeke, made into a pinkeep. I think it
turned out pretty good. Thanks Willeke again for the cute square.

I did finished another pinkeep but it is for an exchange so you will
have to wait until I can post it.

Now I should go and try to get some stitching done since I have joined
a few exchanges and have a RR to work on.

Hopefully I will be posting more regularly.
Until then---Keep stitching!!
