Exchanges delivering everywhere....

Yesterday I received my second wish from the MAW Exchange - it was from Karen - I wanted something stitched in dark murky colours any finish the stitcher wanted to do -
and I received a gorgeously finished Biscornu that surpassed my wish by leaps and bounds and here is a snap of the top -

and here is a snap of the underside -

It even came in its own bag for travelling - It is perfectly finished and I just love it!!!!!
Thank you so much Karen!!!!!!!

I also heard from Carol that the HOE Summer Quaker had arrived - I couldn't decide what to make. So I stitched up and finished two things - and Carol does a ton for everyone and so I thought why not...... I sent along some extra goodies I knew she would enjoy!!
Here is a snap of the exchange as it was sent -

and here is a snap of the Pyn Keepe -

and the small box -

The Pyn Keepe design is called "Wheat" and since it is a summer crop I thought it would be appropriate.... and the box top are little rosebuds - The extras where from Carol's wish list -

I worked on the trees/flowers and here is the little progress I made last night -

There where no movies last night only commercial TV and that basically bit the big one
so I won't wax poetic there -

Thank you all again for all the nice things everyone says
- Have a great weekend!!!! -

Thanks for stopping by!!

Take care,

  12. I just have to get into more exchanges! The Quaker Animals was such fun, but I don't want to bite off more then I can chew. Right now I'm into my gymnastics designs, getting ready for the "Olympic Fever" that I hope hits just in time for the September craft bazaars!
    Yes commercial TV will basically "bite the big one" until the Olympics are on. Then I am revitted to the tube 24/7.

  13. That biscornu is just perfect for a man! What a great choice.

    What lovely gifts for Carol!!!
