Packages Received

Rex was working in the Denver office the last two weeks so I tagged along and enjoyed the snow and some girlfriend time with Staci. We did the usual girlfriend things - shopped, ate, and gabbed! Lots of fun! I picked up the held mail this a.m. and had a belated birthday gift from Joan and my red exchange from Becky waiting for me! Our Friends through Threads exchange group did a red exchange and I sent to Joan. I stitched her a design by Istitch Designs called Sew Sapphire but instead of stitching it in blue, I did it in WDW garnet and finished it into a pillow. Joan loves it and I am a happy camper :)

I received from Becky. Becky stitched me French Square by Scissor Tail designs. Becky used 36 ct. opalescent fabric and Threadwork 1089 to stitch with. It is absolutely lovely! The backing fabric is just perfect for it and I love the little red bead in the center. Thanks so much Becky. Its proudly displayed with my other stitching treasures!
Joan sent me a pretty stitching portfolio! {{ABSOUTELY LOVE IT!!!}} What a treasure! Thanks so much Joan :)
Well, I have a list of 15 projects to tackle but spending two weeks in Denver didn't encourage me to do much in the way of stitching. I just wanted to be out and about way too much! See my sidebar at the right for the list. I'll post pics of some of my starts soon, the lighting tonight is terrible! I think I'll close for now. Thanks so much for stopping by and hope you have some time to put some needle and thread to fabric! Wendy Jo
