PS exchange from HOE arrived

Today the mailman brought me some goodies from Olga who lives in Louisiana. She stitched a design called "Welcome" and made it into a floss holder. I appreciate the other things she also sent. Thanks Olga

Found treasures

While we were on vacation this summer I had the opportunity to visit one of my favorite antique stores and found this green glass "frog" I had been wanting on to put some of my favorite small scissors in and this was just what I wanted. I've put it on top of a green glass plate that I had and then put the whole thing on top of some vintage books that I found at a used bookstore.

One more Halloween Exchange

for me this year. I've had this pattern for a couple of years and decided to stitch it for my friend Nita, who is part of my SB group. There are four sides to the bag, its a Charland Design called Trick or Treat Sacoche.

Another finish for me

This is for a Halloween exchange that I'm in. Its a design by Stacy Nash Primitives called: Hallows Eve Sampler Pillow. I finished it into a tray/box done on 28 count fabric, it measures about 12"x9". Hopefully she will like it.

The first photo is the stitched design, the second photo is the vintage fabric I used for the outside of the tray.

I stitched this PS design

for an exchange that I'm in. Its a really old design, but the first time that I've stitched it. It is over one on 28ct. fabric

I received this beautiful black needleroll

today from Carla V. in the HOE needleroll exchange, this was the first time she stitched on black and my first needleroll that was stitched on black, what a nice addition to my basket

Catchning up

What a busy summer I've had, now is my chance to catch up on things I've stitched and things I've received. First I delivered Summer Ball to my dear daughter in law on July 18th, we had a great time visiting and seeing the movie that she wrote, produced and stared in.
