Happy Friday ...

Remember this pile of stitching that needed to be finished but I couldn't show you two of the finishes because they were for exchanges? Well both exchanges arrived at their new homes last week ...
First up is my Seasonal Exchange for Michelle. The design is by Homespun Elegance. I used some ThreadworX variegated thread ... I thought it looked real Springy ...
My Lizzie*Kate exchange was for Kathy. I had so much fun stitching this design ... it was a quick stitch and I loved the colors.
I was in mood for Valentine stitching and Carol of iStitch had just the perfect freebie for my mood ... someday it will be a sweet little pinkeep. I'll back it with the fabric it's laying on ...
and Carol had another Valentine design that I just had to stitch ... not a freebie, but well worth the buying ... I just LOVE it! I'll be finishing this as a pillow using the fabric it's laying on ...
I'm so excited that after my last post I have Spring/Easter exchanges set up with three wonderful stitchers ... Fiona, Beth and Nataly. Thanks ladies!

Love all your comments ... keep them coming :)

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

I'm grateful for cold snowy days ...

Great finishes and the stitching ain't bad either - LOL! It is amazing that so many of you have just the perfect backing fabric for everything you stitch. Great planning ahead, I guess. I am excited about our exchange - stitching on it already!
