Woodland Exchange Arrives in SF

Gentle readers - today's posting will be devoted to a dear stitching friend that completely spoiled me with the Woodland Exchange!! Margie was my "secret" partner - how secret could she be with me assigning the partners... :) - but that's the breaks sometimes. The package arrived yesterday and was a big one so I took it home to open..... and out tumbled.....

I couldn't believe it! Such lovelies and wrapped in a great toile tissue!! I love toile!! I saved it all and have plans to reuse it for special packages in the future.

After opening everything I was completely dumbfounded - such treats and so many!!

Margie not only stitched a lovely pyn keepe but also gathered up some licorice (a real favorite), a really cute puppy tissues pack, two packs of my favorite JJ gold needles AND a chart from my wish list WITH the silks that are called for!! How great is all that!!!

The pyn keepe is not only a Woodland piece it is also a wonderful tribute to sweet Hunny - our little chihuahua we lost a few weeks back.
Look at the front and you can see Hunny chasing around.....

and on the back is....


Isn't this a lovely piece to remember Hunny with!!! The design is a BBD and it is stitched on Purely Primitive linen. It already has a place on the Hunny "alter" and looks great!!!
I always say that this stitching community it the best and most thoughtful!!!! Thank you so much Margie - you did great!!!!!!

Thank you all for stopping by -
don't forget about the drawing for the Christmas book
- comment on yesterdays post!!

Take care,
edgar
