what a wonderful mail day!



It is always such a treat when a little parcel shows up, but today I found three in my mailbox! And it's not even my birthday!

First, I received the last robin that I will be stitching on with the Friendly Stitchers group this round. It is a Just Nan design for Sally, called Miss Kitty's Dragons. I'm hoping to get to it this weekend.

I have belonged to the Stitching Buddies group for many years, but haven't participated in an exchange in a long long time. So when a Valentine exchange was mentioned, I signed up, And yesterday I got the most wonderful pillow ornament (along with a sparkly pair of socks, a box of candy and two beautiful vintage-y valentines). My partner was Tami, and this is the beautiful Jane Austen inspired design she stitched for me...I really love it! Thanks so much, Tami!


Lastly, there was a package from Gaynor. She has been stitching up all sorts of wonderful creations and giving them away in exchange for contributions to the Irish Cancer Society. You can read all about it here. The heart is a cute little pocket for stashing scissors, threads or whatever, and the owl is just precious. I thought it was going to be a small little pillow, but this guy is large! I'm hoping that Asher will help me give it a name when he visits this weekend. Until then he (or she) will remain nameless as he/she sits perched on my stitching lamp.


I've been mostly stitching on exchanges, so have nothing to show...but today I have picked up a Blackbird Designs piece that has been a UFO for awhile. I'll show pics on Saturday's WIPocalypse post.

Thanks so much for visiting...I'm still working my way through all the blogs from Saturday's party!
