feb 7

It was 45 years ago today that the Beatles first landed in New York...I remember it like it was yesterday...yes I was a true Beatlemaniac. Things were certainly different then...

On to stitchy things...I have received some exchanges over the past weeks.
I received my bookmark exchange from the bbinteractive group. MaryAnne stitched this lovely bookmark for me and also included a set of marking pins that she made herself. I still haven't heard if she received my bookmark yet. It was mailed nearly a month ago so I am sure she has. I don't think she reads my blog so I will post a picture of it. It is a Celtic design that I got from a library book.
The last photo is the beautiful ornament I received as part of the Year Long Prairie Schooler exchange. Malinda stitched this for me...the back is personalized with our names, but I don't have a photo of that. She also included an ort container that she made. This was really a coincidence because I recently read about these on someone's blog and was wondering how I could make one for myself. They fold up so they are portable and can go right in your stitching bag. I love it. Again, I don't know if my partner has received her exchange yet so I will wait to show a photo of that one.


  1. Very nice exchange gifts! I love the little ort bag.

  2. You've received some very nice exchanges. A lovely bookmark and an adorable PS pinkeep. And you have stitched a very pretty bookmark for this exchange.
    Love this little ort bag.

  3. Great exchanges you've received!
    Love the bookmark you stitched!

  4. Your exchanges are lovely, I really like the bookmarks!

    Your historical fact of the day simply can not be correct -- I am NOT that old (ROTFLOL)

  5. Awesome exchange gifts from both of you! Love the ornament and ort container, too! Yes, I do remember the Beatles - hard to believe it's been that long, isn't it?

  6. You have me completely intrigued with these portable Ort containers! Cool :o)

    Lovely exchange gifts as well.

    Thank you for visiting my Blog :o)

  7. Love your Beatle photo and
    remembrance. I was lucky enough
    to see them twice! Once in Atlanta
    and once in Memphis!
    Lots of great memories!

  8. Edgar Winter - wow, that was a while back. Remember his brother? I think - Johnny? Love the pinkeep!

  9. That's a lovely pinkeep for the PS exchange.

  10. Hey Linda -

    Edgar Winter is still alive? I remember that and from my early teens, wow. He must be in his sixties.

    Sounds like you had a great time.


  11. I don't know much about the Beatles, but I have heard of them.
    Those stitched items are beautiful.
