Patriotic Exchange to Jill is Received!

Jill has received the patriotic exchange I sent her. It was the exchange I particpated in on Friends Through Threads. I chose Liberty and Justice by Littlehouse Needleworks as my pattern and finished it into a pinkeep.

I also included some patriotic goodies and things that Jill had on her wishlist.

I am glad Jill loves her package. It was a fun exchange to put together.

Here are a couple of pics:

Today I plan to finish putting together my Christmas in July exchange on the HoE blog and getting that in the mail tomorrow as it has quite a journey to make. After that it will be back to doing some patriotic stitching although I am not sure what to stitch...I have several patterns out and can't decide...decisions..decisions! I will let you know what I decide on.

Until then...thanks for stopping by.

Blackbird Designs Exchange Arrives!

My Blackbird Designs exchange on the Friends Through Friends blog arrived from Ronel in South Africa this afternoon. Ronel stitched me a design from the pattern called Small Token and finished it into a stunning needlebook. She stitched the design on 30 ct. off white Irish linen over two. She changed the colors and I love the colors she chose for the design. The fabric on the needlebook is lovely as the flowers. Ronel also stitched a sweet matching scissor fob, that has already found a pair of scissors to call home :)

Ronel included some floss rings that I can attach to the needlebook if I want, which I think I just may do that. Ronel also made some pins for the book that are just gorgeous! She also made a neat necklace that says "Little Black Bird" on one side and on the other side has my name and Ronel's which I think is such a special treasure. I just love that! Ronel included other extras as well that I will definitely be able to use.

Thank you so very much Ronel for this wonderful exchange! I absolutely love everything you sent!

Here are some pics of my exchange.
