Catch up time!!!

I have a little catching up to do as usual. First I received this exchange from Brigitte. It is a private exchange with a small group of us. Brigitte stitched Tulip Pocket Accessories by Beardie Designs. It is a very cute scissor pocket and fob.

Here is a pic of the back.
Also included in the exchange was these two pieces of 32 count of fabric and some chocolate. I am also waiting for a package from Needlecraft corner.
Thank you so much for this wonderful exchange Brigitte.
Then today I received an exchange package from Margit. We have been doing a private exchange for a few months now. I am really enjoying these exchanges with Margit. She stitched Bad Hare Day by Bent Creek and finished it into a pin keep. Then Margit also stitched Willow Tree Inn by LHN.

Margit also included some fibers and a pattern from Bleu De Chine.
Thank you again Margit.

Then I was asked to stitch a Ring bearer pillow for a friend's daughter. Here is how it turned out.

I stitched a Hardanger pattern from a Crafts and Things magazine. Then I finished it off my own way. I am pleased with the end result. I saw it in action this last weekend, as we went to the Wedding. Here is a stitched piece I framed over the weekend. It is Winter Snapperland by Bent Creek. The stitching has been done for awhile. I found the frame at a local thrift shop and painted to match the stitched piece. Now I have one more snapperland to stitch. Which is the Autumn one and then I will have all the seasons done.Lastly here is a picture of the tattoo my son got recently. Now I am not excited at all about tattoo's but my son---who happens to be my youngest, he must think I will approve if it concerns me!!!! He had the heart with Mama Joan for sometime now and when he returned from being in Africa for seven months with the Marines he added the scissors, needle,thread and spool. The dear boy does know what his mother loves to do!!!!!

So with all of that I hope all is well with everyone who happens to visit.

Happy Stitching!!!!
