Exchanges and good friends....

How surprised was I when my DH arrived yesterday with packages from home??!!! Yippee for me!! Dear Jill, purplepeacockjill.blogspot.com is my wonderful exchange partner in Friends Stitching Through the Seasons Exchange.... Wow!! You did it again Jill!!! I absolutely LOVE everything in my package!


Jill made me a modified version of the LHN Strawberry House into a cute pillow filled with rice...love that! AND, in keeping with her strawberry/red theme, she included: Little Red Kelmscott scissors, Strawberry shaped thread keeper, red topped pins, red buttons and 2 skeins of Weeks Strawberry Fields threads..... That color is beautiful...the perfect blend of dark pinks and light reds..... Am I spoiled or what???
e
Here is an up close picture of my pillow from last year and her pillow....aren't they the perfect compliment to one another????


And, to further spoil me, my wonderful freind, Karen SC, karenshandiwork.blogspot.com sent me some beautiful note cards she hand made the other weekend.....Now, I am going to brag about Karen just a little bit....For those of you who might not know her, she is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. She is talented in so many ways....She is a perfectionist at stitching and can create about anything she sets her mind to when it comes to paper crafting!!! Thanks so much Karen for making these beautiful personalized note cards..... I will have a hard time parting with any of the 4 you sent me!!!
