I love the fair and square exchange ...

I've have had so much fun participating with other stitchers on the fair and square exchange blog. Each round has been a treat, from meeting new stitchers to planning what I was going to stitch for my partner to receiving the squares my partner stitched ... and making friends along the way, what a plus *smile* This round was called Autumn and my partner was Sonda in Oregon. She stitched Elizabeth's Designs "Four Fat Friends". I just love it! I keep wanting to name the birds! lol ... she also make me a lovely scissor fob ... and it's red! lol ... the red is a very deep shade, very autumny looking.
And here's my stitching for Sonda. I chose Lizzie Kate's Fall .. this was a really fun stitch ... I enjoyed all the fall colors ... I'm glad you liked the squares Sonda :)


I hope everyone is having a great week so far and getting lots of stitching done :)
I'm grateful for a new direction ...

Wonderful squares, given and received. This looks like it would have been a fun exchange. Enjoyed your earlier pictures of your stitching get together. The ornament exchange was a fun idea. My favorite was the little Christmas Bluebird, very cute.
