Thanks Julianne for the Summer, Fall, Winter and Spring exchanges that you stitched for me. You certainly do beautiful work, in your stitching and finishing. I appreciate all of the time that you spent this past year stitching for me; I will treasure each piece!
The next box that I opened happened to be the Hooked On Exchanges Freebie sent by Veronica. Is this piece amazing or what? What a gorgeous scissor case with some lovely scissors as well.
I love the fabric selection for the backside as well as the perfectly matched cording. I wonder if Veronica has one of my Must Have Gadgets?
Veronica thank you so much for the scissor case, I am grinning from ear to ear. Again I was spoiled with so many fabulous extras. I do not have either of the charts that you sent and am so anxious to stitch from them. One of the charts is titled, "Whitman's Tin Sewing Set" and Veronica even included the tin, thanks so much. The note cards are so pretty, with so many exchanges I am always in need of these.
My final package of the day came from Ruth. She is my Fair & Square Partner for round #7 and she sent me these beautiful squares. (Sorry, I have tried and tried for a better quality picture with no luck)
I discovered Veronica’s Blog today and I was quite impressed she is a multi talented person that enjoys not only cross stitch but quilting, hand embroidery, knitting, spinning, weaving and thread painting. Curious about thread painting? Check out this piece, it is adorable. It did not take me but a minute to add her blog to my sidebar. :)
Do you see what I see? Now, what are the odds of receiving the same design, from two separate exchanges, on the same day? LOL Yes, it appears that Ruth and Veronica selected the same design to stitch. The colors are completely different, the flower is different and Ruth stitched side borders. Both are gorgeous and I am delighted to have them.
The signature block is just as beautiful. She stitched the basket design from Papillon's Mystery Sampler which is a wonderful sampler offered in The Gift of Stitching Magazine.
Until next time...
