Fall Exchange Received and Sent

I have been so bad about posting lately!!! However, I must share this Fall exchange with you.
I participated in the SBEBB Harvest Time Exchange and received a gorgeous exchange from Nicki~ She selected one of my favorite designers, Bent Creek and stitched the design over 1. Oh how I love over one! Nicki's stitching is gorgeous, I am so impressed. She finished into a darling pinkeep~I feel so lucky.

She also surprised me with SIX very pretty specialty threads. Those silks feel amazing!In addition she sent my way a lovely piece of green hand dyed linen. I am so in need of a larger stash so THANKS!

Leena received my Seasonal stitcher's Fall exchange so I can share this picture with you. With the help of Vonna's tutorial I finished it off as a flat fold.

I just now packaged up my USEBB Ornament Exchange and it will be mailed out tomorrow. I will post pictures as soon as I hear that it has been received.

Block #2 of VoHRH is complete, Yahoo!!! I had planned to photograph it today but life got in the way. I will post a picture on or before the 12/1 deadline. I look forward to seeing everyones progress pictures, even if you did not complete the block be sure to share a photo.

Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday. I am still full!

Until next time...

I'm going to have to check out Vonna's tutorial - I've heard such good things about it, and your flatfold certainly is beautiful! I also love what Nicki sent you - isn't she super-talented?!

Vonna said...

Marie, have you gotten my e-mail about the NRR?! This is your chance GF! :)
I am so jealous over your harvest exchange from Nicki...isn't it just absolutely gorgeous? And what you did for Leena...well words do not adequately say what I think when I see it! GORGEOUS :) comes to mind! Glad you liked my tutorial ;)

Lovely exchanges Marie, I really like the Homespun Elegance one you did. I'm working on the Christmas version of that, and still hadn't decided how to finish it. I may have to follow your example of a flatfold.

Michele said...

WTG on finishing block #2!!!
