Terrry has received her Autumn Quaker Exchange




Terry has e-mailed that she received my USEBB Autumn Quaker Exchange. She says she loves it, and I hope it is an ok exchange. I'm not all that familiar with Quaker's. The design is from BlackBird Designs. I found it on a Quaker Inspired blog. The fabric is from R&R Reproductions, Sleepy Hollow. The threads are WDW Terra Cotta, WDW Ebony, and GAST Dried Thyme. The leaf button is from Mill Hill. Peacock Cypher was on her wish list. Since I don't have any Quaker designs, I am adding some to my stash. I ordered Victoria's Quaker from Amy at Down Sunshine Lane. Wahoo, she is one fast stash enabler. I think this design is a good start.
Stitching today has been on my Humane Society ornaments. I really need to start my sister's bd gift soon. I tease her that she was my birthday present. She was born on the 21st, I was born on the 29th. There's a few year's difference in our ages though. This upcoming bd is a really big milestone for me. I'm not looking forward to it one bit.

Saturday we had our open house at the Humane Society. It was a miserable day weather-wise. The humidity was so stifling that we couldn't keep the office area cool because of the traffic. We had a good day though, four dog adopts and one cat adopt.
Half time's over, Go Packers.

That's so lovely, and wonderfully finished. I've been meaning to stitch that BBD design for some months now...but you know the rest of the story :p :D
