Birthday Exchange

Last month I participated in a personal exchange with my stitching twin, Carol.  We both have the same birth month so we decided to exchange during that month.  Carol spoiled me with a beautifully stitched sewing box.  It is absolutely gorgeous and the pictures do NOT do it justice.  It is a Blackbird design.  Inside the box were wonderful stitching necessities.  A mother of pearl floss winder, beautiful threads and thread rings along with the cutest pair of scissors.  All of that was wrapped in two awesome project pouches.  One is a snap pouch and the other is a zippered project bag in matching fabrics.  Carol, thank you! You are incredibly talented. 




Below are pictures of the needlebook I made for Carol.  She and I both love birds and I couldn't resist stitching this for her.  I decided to make it into a needlebook.  I also enclosed some of my beaded pins in the needlebook.  Other things in her birthday package included a Blue Ribbon Design chart with fabric, an ort jar, and a clear glass flower flog.  She had been on the hunt for one and I happened to come across a good sized one on an antique mall shopping trip.  You can see these items on her blog
 

I was able to finish CCN Day at the Beach and will post a picture soon.  (It needs to pay a visit to the ironing table) I hope you are all having a wonderful day.  Happy Stitching!
