Love and Friendship Exchange

This month I participated in the Stitched with Love Exchange that Lainey organized.  I love exchanges!  Shopping for just the right things, stitching up something sweet and sharing it with a new friend.  Well, I have to say I was so delighted with the exchange I received.  It was completely thoughtful and everything I received was something I would buy for myself.  Carolyn did a fabulous job and I LOVE the little pillow she made for me.  Thank you so much Carolyn.


The gifties I received all beautifully wrapped.

My new treasures
Carolyn sent me the pillow she made, the new LK kit, new DD heart scissors, thread, beads, lovely fabric, hershey kisses, and a wonderful book titled Words for friends to live by.  I love it all!!

Here is a picture of what I sent to my partner Jackie.  Unfortunately she doesn't have a blog but Lainey said she loved her gifties. 

Here is a better picture of the pillow I stitched for her.  It is a Bent Creek design called February glows.  I made it into a pin pillow and attatched heart lace to it.  I included some Puntini Puntini pins to go with it.
I hope everyone that participated in the exchange had as much fun as I did. 
Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are all getting in lots of stitching time.
