~~~Your kind words warm my heart~~

You guys make my heart smile with all your wonderful kind words! Thanks for the feedback on the baby book I stitched and sewed for my dear friend...I have to tell you, I was welcomed with kind words at work today as many of the folks I work with do not have a hobby involving needlework, but admire those of us who do enjoy it... And, yes, the mother-to-be let me know this would be a treasure she would  hold on to and pass down.... Everyones fine words are true rewards to me...
Thanks so very much!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I really am getting spoiled this week arriving home to yet another treat in the mailbox!!  A while back, Michele and I had agreed to a private exchange...And, look at these lovely goodies she stitched for me!!

 Michele says this is a BBD piece she stitched at at retreat...The finish is too cute in this brown shaker box and I love the pincushion top!! Thanks Michele!!


And, she stitched the cutest tiny pillow for my red basket....I love things that are monogramed so this is just perfect Michele!!
 She even attached a beautiful "Made for you" charm along with the 2011 on the back....LOVE THAT~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A while back, I had 3 little goodies mailed to me from Cathy of KY (no blog)....She does the stitching and I do her finishing..... Since she has recieved them in the mail and with her permission, I would like to show you the finished products..

I truly enjoyed sewing these finishes for you Cathy...




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am down to  the last 7 flowers on Eliz Emma Bice Wade Sampler....I want to make this piece my next "Up for a challenge" finish....so, cross your fingers!!!

Here's hoping everyone has had a good week and is looking forward to a fantastic weekend!!

Take care, 
 Faye

Sweet pincushion! I've been seeing that pattern around on various blogs, and I really like it! I also like the sheep pattern at the bottom. Do you know the name or designer for the piece? Not that I need anything more to stitch, but I'd still like to know. Just in case. :-)

Thank you Faye for sharing my stitching with your friends. I am so happy to have made a friend with you. As for the one with sheep it is from 2010 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue. It was fun to stitch. Happy Stitching to all.
