Pam's Posting

Dear C'ecile, I'm totally speechless, it is so lovely. Thank you so much and your English is terrific! Greetings from Iowa. Pam

A wonderful exchange received..thank you, Pam!!

I received tody my exchange from Pam, and, WOW, I was speechless!
It was so personalized for me! With a memory of my wonderful trip down the Route 66, and even a silver needle to remember my visit to the Silver Needle in Tulsa, OK! :)

It is already at work, as a scissor keeper :) The Kelmscott scissors are perfect for it!

It is stitched one over one, and it is SO precious...I will keep it with me for all of my stitching, it will remember me not only a wonderful trip, but above all a wondeful person, Pam, and all of you in this exchange!

Ready for Round 2!!
Thanks again, Pam!

On its way

My exchange piece to Denise is on its way as we speak. I just dropped it off at the post office.

I hope you like what I did for you Denise. It was really, really hard to part with this one. I like it so much I plan on doing one for myself. :) It should reach you before the end of the week.

Love and stitches

All Boxed Up!

My exchange piece was all boxed up this morning. I finally found "just the right box". The scary thing.....it was on the floor right next to the front door! That's what I get for stitching so much and neglecting the housework.

The box will be traveling cross country, so I expect that it will arrive sometime next week. Let's hope that it arrives safe and sound!

Happy Stitching!

Beautiful exchange from Jill recieved!!

I was so surprised to get home from school today and see the beautiful LHN exchange piece in the mail from Jill~~ She hit the nail on the head making me "Reading, Writing, Stitching". The fabric is Antique White 28ct and she used DMC 115..And she is an expert finisher! The pinkeep is beautiful and I love love love the color red! Knowing I work with First Graders, I smiled when she commented at how she thought I would love the saying. Yes Jill, you made my day!!

Still Searching.....

......for the right size box!

My exchange is ready to head on it's merry way, but I can't find a box it will fit in. I feel like Goldilocks in the Three Bears house, I have a box that is too big and a box that is too small. Hopefully I'll find one that is just right! And soon!!


Exchange Sent

I mailed my exchange today. I hope it arrives safely.

Thank You Mary :)

I came home from my test at the Hospital this morning to this gorgeous surprise in my mailbox! Mary stitched me CCN Needlework Shop from my wishlist and created this wonderful needlebook. I'm just thrilled with it, I LOVE it! A wonderful addition to needlework display and a perfect place to keep my extra needles! Thanks again Mary :)

Happy Stitching,
