My First exchange has arrived!!!!!!

Yesterday I received my first ever exchange from the SBEBB and it was Cheryl who was stitching for me!!! Cheryl and I have gotten to know each other over the past year through the Heartfelt Friends RR, so I was very surprised to find that she had stitched me a perfectly gorgeous pinkeep. Here is a snap of the beautiful piece!



She has combined a couple of designs to make one lovely thing. This was not all that she sent I also got a wonderful Cross Stitch pocket calender, magazine, length of Black Watch ribbon and some beautiful steel coloured beads and the greatest fuzzy blue bag, I was truly gifted!!!! Thank you so much Cheryl!!!! One day I am sure I will return the generosity! Here is a snap of the whole package.


I am certainly enjoying the exchange BB!!!

Last night I once again worked on QC. Again avoiding the white........ here is a progress snap.


See that heart to the right of that chicken and under that deer/moose (Meer) ...I had to pull that sucker out twice, count'em twice..... because this is a page break and I can't count!!!! I usually take my working copies and tape them together so that the count is continuous and I am not flipping paper all over the place...... I didn't with QC...I think I am going back and taping this puppy up. Now that chicken in the lace I had not one problem with, go figure!
( I know that is probably a crow or raven, but I calls'em chickens) :)

I also got some more stash, is there no end to the buying, I ask you!!! I saw on Anna's blog the completed Hillside Samplings - "Animal Samplings" it is really a pretty finish and quite the inspiration...... and then I had an idea....blink blink blink (light bulb going off) and remembered that HS did a number of "Sampling" charts and wouldn't they look nice done up as one piece three rows of four. So I bought "Animal, " "House" and "Fruit" Samplings and will work them together into one large piece. How cool will that be. When will I find the time?
I forgot to take a picture of the charts. I pop one up tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by, and just one more THANK YOU goes out to Cheryl!!!!!!

Take care,
edgar
