Spring Swaps and Exchanges


I was very fortunate to be able to participate in 3 exchanges for the spring.  I have sent all of mine off and have received 2 very generous exchanges.  The first thank you goes to Michele at Just Another Stitching Blog. Here  is a picture of the goodies she included: 2 cuts of beautiful fabric, limited edition thread pack from Gentle Arts, a finger tip towel, sharpies with a pen purse, thread heaven, photo album, a beautiful scissor fob (did you make this one Michele??) and a lovely pincushion with lovely beaded pins.





The design is by Raise the Roof.  My favorite thing in spring is the return of the birds to my feeders especially the bluebirds.  It couldn't have been more appropriate.  Thanks Michele.
The next exchange I took part in was organized by Parsley at Seasons of my Mind.  Lynn sent this wonderful package for the exchange.  You can visit her blog at Needles-and-quilter-me.
As you can see, Lynn took great care in wrapping these lovely surprises.  Inside I found some Madeira silks, a butterfly cookie cutter, a memo pad (better known in my house as a stash list), beautiful notecards, some sparkly spring fabric and a lovely pillow stitched and made by Lynn.  How cute is that bluebird.


This design is Spring Bluebird by Waxing Moon and was the perfect gift for a Spring exchange.  I am so happy to have had these wonderful ladies touch my life.  THANK YOU!!!

Happy Stitching Everyone!
