Gifties and a finish....

I am starting to think I am the luckiest girl alive!!! Look what all came in the mail the last couple days~~~
Feast your eyes on this beautiful, and I mean beautiful, sampler that was sent to me by Mary Kathryn... She is in the process of relocating and I was fortunate to have my name drawn~~~ How cool is that???

I dont have the details, but I do know I cannot wait to have this baby framed!! Thanks so much Mary Kathryn....

*******

And, when I go home today, I had the most wonderful package in the mail from Pat (no blog)...Pat and I have been emailing for a while now and we decided to do a private exchange.... I LOVE the red BBD pillow she made for me!!!  The overdyed thread and red chenille are a perfect match!!!  Pat I truly LOVE this design and your stitching is gorgeous~~  And, the extra goodies....well, I am surely going to smell good~~  Thanks so much!


This treasure will look perfect in my red basket~~~

****
As for my stitching this week,  well,  since I have been in a SamSarah/LizzieKate state of mind lately, I decided to stitch up this quickie that my dear friend Karen sent to me....It speaks to my repurposing/frugal/using whatcha got/ kind of buckling down side...Something I ALWAYS need to be doing and I can honestly say, am getting BETTER at doing....


More on this little goodie in a future post......

Well, I better get busy in the kitchen so I can get in the craft room and finish sewing up a couple exchanges that I need to get in the mail~~~

Happy stitching everyone,

Faye
