Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thanks for all the sweet comments about "Oregon Trail." I am in total agreement with Ariadne and the "sixth" star ..... that is done in WDW "Sand." A very light colour... even with out the glare of my flash it does seem very pale in comparison to the other stars. But, the only thing holding me back from a rip and re-stitch is that this band is meant to represent a quilt and in a quilt you often have some lighter and some darker pieces - so - for the moment I am going to live with it.... or until it drives me crazy! I do love getting feed back on things I am working on and gladly welcome any thoughts or suggestions you might have - sometimes I might not see something obvious or odd - so let me know!!
I took part in the HOE Valentine Day Exchange and yesterday mine arrived!! My Partner was Kathy from over at "Kathy's Stitching and Other Comments" - you can check out what she is stitching and see updates on her darling Rory!! Well, she sent a wonderful exchange...
Along with the lovely stitched "Stitch Starter" she included a prezzie for the who-hounds from sweet Rory - the pink fuzzy squeaker - and since it is the new squeaky toy everyone wants a turn!! Kathy also knows how I do love a tea towel and sent along a super heart covered one for my collection. Here are a couple of close up snaperoos...
and here is a snap of the back....
.... includes the date and our initials!! I have wanted to stitch one of these since I first saw them over on the Blue Ribbon site - but too many things to stitch and too little time have kept me from accomplishing that - and now I have this wonderful special one!! Thanks you so much Kathy!!! and Rory too!!!
I worked on finishing up an exchange piece last night and will again tonight - boy, I am such a procrastinator!! So, there will be no stitching snaps for a day or two that I can show.
That's about it for today sports fans. Thanks again for all you super comments - I do appreciate them!!!
