july 2 - exchanges to share & a WIP

I recently participated in a floss tag exchange with the Friendly Stitchers yahoo group and received my exchange today. I also heard that my partner received hers, so I can share the pictures. Here is the exchange that I received. Gillie did a wonderful job stitching this floss tag and she also included 2 gorgeous skeins of silk from Caron Waterlilies and the other a silk 'n colors. I can't wait to use them (I'm already using the floss tag!)

I stitched this older freebie from Little House Needleworks for my partner. It is called "Two Sheep", and I included some silks for her also.

And finally, here is an update on my Beatrix Potter Quaker Sampler. I think I will try to work down the right side of the sampler this month.

Thanks for visiting!
