My exchange item has arrived!

Look what arrived in the mail this morning. I have to say that I think I may have scared the parcel delivery man by showing up to the door in my bedtime finery. Anyway, when I opened the parcel this is what was inside. Joan has stitched me the most adorable little scissor fob I have ever seen. I have shown a picture of the front and back. How lovely of her to personalise it for me!


I can't forget that she also sent me a whole lot of goodies. Joan has obviously been reading my blog and found that The Prairie Schooler "Pumpkin Patch" was on my wishlist. Joan also sent all the threads to complete the design. There was a pair of scissors, chocolates, a calender, a little chicken pincushion Joan stitched, sticky notes in the shape of the letter 'S' and some hand cream.


Thank you so much Joan, your stitching is fabulous and your generosity has really touched me.

Suzanne,

Glad to see that the fob arrived safely and that you like it. I enjoyed stitching it for you.

I will be watching to see the "Pumpkin Patch" stitched.

Also excited to be stitching with you on the LHN RR.

Your fob sister,
Joan

What a lovely exchange. Your fobs are lovely.
Have you been getting the storms over the last few days. On Tuesday we had hail as big as golf balls, yesterday we had a blackout for a few hours. There is another one building up at the moment. Should be interesting what happens today. Hopefully it wont't come when I have to meet the school bus.
By the way check out Wiehler-gobelin.com Magazin. It is a free on-line magazine that is quite interesting. In issue 2 there is a free angel pattern that you might like. Download the English version. - Take care - Sandra.

Whats amazing about the rug is that she started it when she was 74 and would have finished it when she was around 81. Fancy giving it away. It would have looked lovely in Buck Palace or Windsor Castle.
By the way, if you go to Carriage House Samplings News page you will see their new designs including The Shores of Hawk Hollow Run.

Hi Suzanne, I couldn't find your email address at home so I am sending you a message via your blog. Not sure if you were planning to come up tomorrow. If you are, I won't be at the shop, but Mel will. I have put your charts away and told Mel where they are, so just say hi and introduce yourself:) 2 new Red Snappers have been released. I will have them in a couple of weeks along with the new DD silks:)

Cheers
Karen

Great exchange, lucky you! I love PS designs. I started on Pumpkin Patch in the fall but I've put it aside for now. Too many other things are calling out to me!

Cheryl said...
