My Exchange arrived ...

My last two personal exchanges arrived at their new homes. First up is the exchange I sent to Nataly. I stitched a little pincushion for her from Raise the Roof's Pins and Needles leaflet. She loves birds and the color blue so I though this was perfect for her ... and she loved it *smile* I made pins for the pincushion and included a scissor fob that I made too .... along with a few other goodies. Nataly has better pictures on her blog ... go over and visit :)

My last exchanged head to Fiona in Scotland. It didn't as long as I thought to find it's way to Fiona. For Fiona I stitched the other pincushion from Raise the Roof's Pins and Needle leaflet.. I'm really glad she likes pink! I also made her some pins and a scissor fob too.Here's close ups of the pincushions ... the fabric they are laying on are the fabrics I used to back them with. I stuffed them with crushed walnuts to keep their needles nice and sharp.

I really enjoyed spoiling all three of my exchange partners and enjoyed being spoiled by each of them too.

Thanks for all your fun comments from my last post. My fuzzy chicks were a hit! lol ... I've had them for about 5 years and have always enjoyed seeing them again every Easter time ... but now with Chicks Rule all finished up, those chicks are more fun!

I've been doing more Easter stitching and hope to have a few finishes to share with you in the next couple of days.

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

I'm grateful for bunnies and chicks ...
