Exchanges ...

Look what came in the mail today ... it's my Lizzie Kate Exchange from Melissa. I just love this pattern! Kinda perfect for me, don't ya think? lol .. she did a lovely job finishing it and it's now sitting happily in my kitchen. Thank you so much Melissa for stitching this for me :)

And my exchange piece arrived at it's new home too .. this was a surprise exchange, we didn't know who was stitching for us. I got Sharon's name and thought this August flip it would be really fun to stitch. Karen finished it for me ... I think it turned out really cute ... I'm glad Sharon likes it :)


Before I get back to stitching and watching Tuesday night tv I wanted to share a picture of one of my wips ... it's called Earth Laughs and is by MDesign. The fabric is a very pretty light blue, the same I stitched Joyful Summer on. Someday I'll get a better photo of the fabric ... this is really a fun design to stitch ... I was only going to stitch one flower a week but looks like I'll be stitching a couple more before I put it away again ...


I hope you find your joy in your stitches ...

I'm grateful for pretty coffee cups ...

Wow, you've had all kinds of gorgeous stitching to see between this entry and your last one. What beautiful exchanges, and all the finishing was wonderful. Makes me want to get some of my unfinished finishes out and do something with them, like maybe the no sew cube. Fun new WIP too, loving the colors in Laugh.

Playing catch up on reading your blog is like going to a buffet! What a banquet of delightful stitching! Is it weird that stitching actually makes my mouth water?? LOL!
