Exchange Received!

Yesterday I received a parcel containing a beautiful pillow stitched by Gaby for the Year Long Prairie Schooler Exchange. Gaby has chosen one of the Prairie Fairies which I adore and has finished it into a long pillow. I have been wanting one of these long pillows for a while and I am very excited to have received this beautifully stitched one. Gaby also included a chart of another of the Prairie Fairies that was on my wish list. Thank you Gaby for this wonderful exchange.

I also love these long pillows. The PS Fairy is just lovely, I was also going to stitch one but decided on the other piece I did instead.

Hi Suzanne,
Just catching up with my blogging. When my DH is home I never get a look in on the computer.
What a beautiful piece from Gaby. It is lovely, expecially with the rabbit on it for Easter. The pinkeep is also beautiful. You did a great job.
I bet it was lovely to have your DH home. He did a great job. I think all the guys and girls who are in the RFS etc. are really special people. I know all the hard work that they put in with training etc.
What a lot of stash you have from the Craftfeast. I have been those scissors in Karens and they are lovely.
Another Pandora collector. I think they are a really good idea for little girls and big ones as well, as you can give them a charm for birthdays etc. and you just have to keep replacing the original bracelet as they grow out of them. I have 2 of them and I love wearing them.. Both of mine are nearly full. My family have started to buy the silver ones for me with the gold on them. Lovely. Although I would love a couple of gold ones, but I won't hold my breath lol. - Sandra.
