Exchanging and some super mail!!!!

Last night I worked on an exchange so no snap yet!

My super mail day started with a wonderful exchange from Becky in Oklahoma for the Spring Quaker Exchange. She made the most lovely PynKeep in beautiful pale spring colours that really evoke a new season with their soft tones. Here is a snap of the entire exchange package.

Included in the package was a notepad, that I put right to work, a skein of "Melancholy" by Olde Willow Stitchery, and the third chart "Gobble" I needed from Plum Street. Such a wonderful surprise thank you VERY, VERY much!!!!!!

Here is a closeup of the PynKeep -

It is so pretty and springy!!!

I also got in the mail an order of fabric from Silkweavers. Here is a snap of all the linen I got over the weekend and yesterday -

I needed some small pieces of interesting fabric for some upcoming things and so got these pieces. The two Silkweaver selections are Days Gone by and Sudden Storm. Here is a snap of the Friday acquisitions - (and an outlet strip - :) )

I also see that Cathy has received her package from me for the HOE - it was a PynKeep exchange. Here is a snap of the piece I made for her -

It is a Quaker squirrel - I stitched him in one of my favorite floss' - Loden by WDW. Here is a snap of the entire exchange - The design is from the Ackworth Book of Designs.

I also received Carol's piece for the QFRR.
It is really lovely and I can't wait to start working on a section!!

I also would like to thank everyone for the kind comments about my "Christmas Tree" PynKeep - you are all so very nice!!!!!!
