Exchange Received ~ Exchange Sent

USEBB: Summer House Exchange

I participated in the USEBB Summer House Exchange and received this wonderful fabric basket from Chris. The Chessie & Me design was beautifully stitched over one! I absolutely love the look of designs stitched over one AND I truly appreciate the time that it takes! I have stitched a few designs over one and it takes FOREVER :-).

I had not seen this type of finish before, I just might try it myself. It is quite clever, when you tie the four corner ribbons it forms this great little fabric basket.

Chris also included three threads from Gentle Art and one from WDW. The colors are gorgeous and will work their way into a design soon. I also received a very pretty, and much needed, Notepad and Accessory gift set.

Thanks so much for everything, you made this such a special exchange!


For The Birds Exchange


I sent my USEBB "For The Birds Exchange" to Nancy and since it has been received I can share this photo with you. I selected a Prairie Schooler Design and stitched it on 40 count over one.

After seeing this on Annemarie's blog I immediately set out to purchase the chart. I just had to make one of her famous Floss FOB's. I knew when I signed up for this exchange that it would be perfect!

Oh wowie, I'm flattered :o) I think your floss FOB looks darling! Gorgeous wooden ring, by the way. We don't get them this pretty over here.
I also love the exchange basket you received from Chris. Lovely finish!

What beautiful exchanges! I have been searching high and low for those wooden rings ever since I saw them on Annemarie's blog. I saw them on ebay, but didn't really want to buy 100, but I just found some this morning at Hobby Lobby! Now you have also got me excited to stitch some floss fobs :)

Your exchanges are beautiful. I love the floss fob! Great job. By the way where did you get your wooden ring from. I seem to have trouble finding them. The one time I asked at Joann's I got the blank stare-LOL.

I had somehow lost your blog address from my Reader and so I suddely realized you've been posting here and I've missed all your posts! So I'm trying to catch up with reading as you can see :)

The fob you've stitched is simply wonderful! The basket you received is very beautiful too.
