What's the Buzz Exchange Received

I am so excited...I received a wonderful exchange from Barbara that smelled delightful. She stitched me this darling Scissor FOB, and included the stork scissors as well. The FOB is filled with Lavender and a good-luck coin!

Scissor FOB from Barbara
Design: Bee Spring!
Designer: Wonderful Stitches

On the back she stitched 2007, and included an adorable Bee charm.

What's The Buzz Exchange
From: Barbara

I was treated to a number of great gifts: Quaker Bee Sampler pattern by Chessie & Me, very pretty ribbon, beautiful note cards, a neat bookmark, and some lavender soap! (oops, just realized the soap is not in the is keeping my sewing room smelling sweet!) :-}

Barbara, I can not thank you enough for this wonderful exchange!!!

Home From Vermont
My summer stay in Vermont has come to an end. I am home now (making it far easier to blog and post pictures) and will return to Vermont on most weekends. It is such a beautiful state! I look forward to the fall when colors burst all around you!

Here are just a few pictures:
Lake Bomoseen

As you exit our road this is the lake that you see. Both my boys enjoy jet skiing, fishing, and boating on the pontoon boat. I remain at home, usually stitching and enjoying this view:

View from the deck: Sugar Shack and Pond

Our property sits on 40+ acres, most of it wooded. In the distance you see the sugar shack, for making maple syrup. No, I do not make ~ it I purchase it. If you ever want Vermont's best maple syrup (really)...try Green's in Poultney, VT.

Thanks for all of your very kind comments. It is always great to hear from you!

Until next time...
