First, the winner of my little giveaway is... CALAMITY JR.!!
Congratulations! Could you email me at inkystitcher @ yahoo.com with your address? Thanks!!
Now onto the pictures!
First, let me show you what Catherine sent me for the Love and Friendship Exchange. It was amazing! She stitched the pretty pillow and put my husband's and my initials on it, along with our wedding year. That is SO special, cuz this will be our 25th anniversary this year and now I have a stitched remembrance of it!
Then there are beads and a mesh bag and a wonderful pair of Dinky Dyes scissors and lots of deep fall colored floss and needles and... HAND DYED FABRIC. I could not believe it!! The best part was that the color of the fabric was just PERFECT for a pattern I've had kitted up since last year, that I could not find fabric for!! I was so excited that I started it right away! I'm stitching it over 1 on the Hand-Dyed Monaco...
Do you recognize it? It's Silver Creek Sampler's "Eye on the Sparrow". It's coming along so quickly and I absolutely love working on it! I have put in a few stitches on all my pieces, even my UFO, but I'm only going to show you a progress picture on my Dimension's Cabin which is still pretty close to being "on target" to be finished by the end of the year...
Oh! Here's my exchange gift that I sent to Shirlee. I enjoyed stitching her pillow, which was an ornament from one of the newest JCS ornament magazines. I haven't stitched a whole lot of pieces that just use one color and it was sort of relaxing. : )
Now, for a favorite card... Hmmm... which one to choose... I know!
This is a digi stamp that I colored with copics. I followed the My Favorite Things Wednesday sketch and got to use my new Flower and Leaf Trio Die-Namics to cut out the flower and leaves.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
