A couple of exchanges, and famous or infamous???

Here is my Fair and Square exchange from Faye. She stitched "Christmas Elegance" by Milady's Needle with Belle Soie--Creme de Menthe. Faye did a wonderful job of stitching and I can't wait to get this finished into an ornament for my tree.
Thank you Faye.

This is the Fall exchange I sent to Melissa for the Friends Stitching Through the Seasons blog.
I stitched Lizzie Kate's Sampling Halloween Quick-it. I finished it as a box

Here's a look at the inside. I also included a witch scissors.
I also sent these goodies in the plastic tote. A Kelmscott Needle minder, some halloween socks, note pad, note cards, pen, buttons and beads. I really had a great time putting this together for Melissa.

Today I received my copy of Clara Ellen by Blackbird Designs. It was very exciting to see my name in print as the stitcher of this pattern. I really enjoyed stitching this piece.
Thanks Alma for letting me stitch this design:)

Well now I am off to do some more sewing. I have been making stitching portfolio's and some vinyl project bags. Check back again.

Happy Stitching!!

You are now famous! Probably too famous to be hob-knobbin with slugs like me! LOL! How exciting! I will have to get a copy and have you autograph it.

Great the LK box you finished with that fabric. Too cute. Kudos on the BBD special!

happy stitching...

Wonderful all around! I especially love the font Faye used for your names. :)

I was admiring this exchange you made on her blog the other day--I need to "see" about some box finishes myself sometime. :D

Also, Clara Ellen is one of the "cutest" BBD offerings I've seen in a long time--of course they are all wonderful, but I wouldn't call them all cute. (nor would we want them to be). Point is: It's a charming whimsical summery design and you did a great job bringing it to life. :)
