A Spring Exchange Arrives

Maggee and I were paired for a spring exchange on the All Seasons Exchange blog and Maggee's exchange arrived yesterday. She stitched me LK's freebie called Hello Spring. I just love it the cute little purple heart buttons she added.

I can't show pics of Maggee's exchange quite yet as it will be mailed on Monday.

Thanks for a great exchange Maggee!

DT Exchange Arrived in Germany

Brigitte e-mailed to let me know she received the package I sent her. It was the DT exchange we did on the Friends Through Threads blog. She said she was thrilled with the entire package so, of course, that made my day!

The pattern I chose is from Too Tiny Sampler. I decided to finish it in my customary a pinkeep. I looked at Brigitte's wishlist and noticed she wanted some ribbon, fabric and notecards I thought I'd send those along as goodies.

Here are some pics:

A Crazy Exchange From The Netherlands

I received my return exchange from Ina in the Netherlands yesterday. Ina stitched me a gorgeous biscournu! I must say I don't have very many biscournus, So I was happy to have another one to add to my collection.

Ina also sent some goodies as well.

Thanks Ina for a wonderful exchange.

Drawn Thread Exchange Arrives From Germany

My Friends through Threads exchange arrived last night from Kerstin. We were doing a Drawn Thread exchange. Kerstin stitched me Spot of Spring and finished it into a lovely little pillow, adding ribbon with a bow and heart saying "made with love". I just love it. Kerstin also sent some "spring" themed goodies. A lovely pattern with bunnies and spring flowers, a butterfly ornament, a skein of pastel thread and some iron on woven labels.

Thanks so much Kerstin for a wonderful exchange.

Crazy Exchange from The Netherlands

My crazy exchange from Caroline arrived yesterday and I love the lunch bag that she made for me.

Caroline said she used reproduction dutch fabrics from a town in the Netherlands called Hindeloppen. Caroline said the women there still wear or use these fabrics in their traditional costumes. I like it that Caroline choose special fabric to make my lunch bag. It gives it a special meaning.

Here is a pic of the exchange. I now have something to carry my snacks and drink in for my Tuesday stitch group. Thanks so much Caroline!!!

You may wonder why I got something quilted and not stitched. The members of the crazy exchange blog are quilters, embroiderers and stitchers. Another reason I really like participating in this group, lots of different talented gals!

Thanks so much Caroline!

Crazy Exchange from Taija!

Being a member of the Crazy Exchange blog is alot of fun. You know you are getting an exchange because an "x" is put beside you name in the database by the person sending to you but you don't know who it is until it arrives. Well, mine arrived on Saturday all the way from Finland!

Taiji sent a cute little pillow! I just love the twine she used, it goes so perfect with the saying. Taija also sent some wonderful extras. All will be put to great use.

Thanks so much Taija. I have already pulled threads, fabric and design and will start stitching yours this afternoon.

Here are some pics of the lovely exchange:
