PIF Received

I received this lovely pin cushion as my PIF from Mary Kathryn. The picture does not do it justice, it is absolutely awesome.

I stitched this for a friend who retired and moved to Prince Rupert to be with her daughter and family. It seemed appropriate as she made the move to help look after their 2 boys and new born daughter. I couldn't get it finished before her move, so will be mailing it off this week, hope she likes it.

We have been having absolutely gorgeous weather. Some days are so hot, but then it cools down the next day which is nice. So it looks like we will get a summer after all.

There's a contest going on over at Stitch Pink , take a look at the July 9th posting.

Quaker Box Received

I received my Quaker exchange from Jennifer and she has outdone herself. This is her first exchange and I think she was rather anxious about it. Not to worry Jennifer, I LOVE IT !
She stitched the Sheep and finished into a box and filled it with goodies. My favorite Bliss chocolate, DMC Linen thread, postcards of Ohio, colored book rings, Lavender sachet and candles and she also stitched a fob.
Thank you so much Jennifer.

Quaker Inspired Exchange

We were to stitch a Quaker Critter from The Workbasket, and this is what I did for Donna.
I really enjoyed stitching it and may do one for myself.

At first she didn't know it was from me. I have a very bad habit of sealing up the envelopes and then realizing I forgot to write up a card.

I have finished one PIF and am working on the second. July 15th (or sooner) still looks good as the mail out day.

I received some of the latest LHN patterns in the mail this week, making me anxious to start them all at once. Oh how I wish I could stitch in my sleep :) which is where I am off to now, so I can stitch when I get up !
