Halloween and Autumn Quaker exchange received

One of my other great things that happened this past weekend was I received not one, but TWO exchanges. Goldie has my name for both exchanges :D I am lucky! She went all out, and I am just so excited about what she made for me.

For the Autumn Quaker exchange she made a really cute needlebook. It is so pretty!

The inside had a small cushion with my initials on one side and a peacock on the other. So creative.

Also for the Halloween Exchange she made a small tin. She finished a Shepherd’s Bush freebie and it really looks perfect. I have yet to try to finish something onto a tin, it is neat-o. Thanks Goldie!

She included 3 skeins of floss to try out, ribbons, black linen and so much more, so generous. I love it all :)

Also this week I finished Little House Needleworks: Berries. I’ve been stitching away at it at work. It is really cute. I have been happy with these small designs so far.

So, this week is the big church activity, amongst other things. I have been working A LOT on the Mermaids. I have quite a bit of beading to do still, but I am over ½ way done with the beading now. I hope to have them done by my goal date of 11/15! I think I’ll make it :) Yay! Goals are so helpful for motivation.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog! I really do appreciate you all stopping by :)

Wanted to say thank you so much for your sweet comment on my blue and white swap quilt!

Take care and have a great day!

PS! That Red Rooster Cross Country Quilters fabric in the bacground of your pictures one of your favorites as well? I think that one is one of Jennifer's prettiest, and she has designed some beauties :o)

I saw these on Goldie's blog...aren't they just beautiful? I bet your getting quite an assortment of smalls for display, yes?!

Fabulous exchange! Enjoy. Berries looks great. Congrats on the finish.

I love seeing how people finish things. It gives me more reasons (reasons, I say, not excuses!) to stitch lots of smaller things. :D

I saw your beading progress at the xstitch community, and you're really zooming along with those beads! The effect is lovely, but I think my Mirabilia patterns are going to continue being at the bottom of my stash for a long time to come. Just the thought of all the packages of Mill Hill beads that have to go on them is finger-cramping, LOL!

Goldie did a fantastic job on the exchanges! Berries looks very cute, I've been trying to ignore those small LHN charts, but it seems lots of people are posting finishes recently and I think I may be placing an order soon.
