Spring Exchange from Vonna

Today, I was speechless in delight as I received my spring exchange from Vonna! She sent me this gorgeous scissor keep case and the two pairs of scissors inside the case that you see below. The designer is Blackbird Designs and the pattern is called from me to thee in the Token's of Friendship book. Vonna used her own hand dyed fabric and chose her own dmc colors. Her finishing is wonderful and I just love everything about it. Thanks so much Vonna!

Spring Exchange for Carol

Here the last seasonal exchange 0f the 2007-2008 year for Carol . A design by Les grilles de Maryse called spring is in the air. It was a fun stitch and I finished it into a pinkeep with a dark purple fabric on the back. The pins I dyed with a green metallic like paint-a first. I also used a bow technique that Andrea from The Craft Room had highlighted on her blog. I have truly enjoyed stitching for Carol this past year and putting together these exchanges.

Other than that working on a personal exchange after much decision about thread colors as it is a monochrome exchange. I am also working on the house in small spurts-cleaning closets etc. The children are out of school and terrorizing their poor mama-already cries of "I'm bored", "I'm hungry" are floating into my little ears. Children anyone? anyone? LOL Thanks for all the comments on my daydream piece-I am continuing to work on that and hope to have a finish soon. Anyway I am off to be terrorized err loved some more. Happy stitching!
