Outi has receive Here's to Ewe exchange

I heard from Outi, the snow princess, that she received my Here's to Ewe exchange. The package took quite some time to travel to Finland from Oklahoma. One never knows how quickly these international exchanges will be delivered. I chose one of the blocks from the Prairie Schooler's Old MacDonald to stitch for Outi. For some reason I just love this chart. I have one more project in mind to do from it. Here's the complete exchange, the front and the back:

After looking at my photos, I see I was off just a bit with the trim. Well, what can I say? I'm finishing challenged!

I want to thank all of you for your comforting words over my dad's passing. I appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Thursday - Sunday I was house sitting in the country. The lighting out there isn't adequate for stitching, however, I was able to read. Finished a light read, "The doorbell rang". It's a Nero Wolfe mystery. Just happened to find it while cleaning at my mom's house. I didn't realize it was a NW until I got into it. Any way, it was a fun, light, read. I'm also reading one of the "Miss Julia" series by Ann B. Ross. Miss Julia is a delightful character. I highly recommend this series if you looking for a fun read with a light touch of comedy.

This week I'll be pulling threads and cutting fabric for another exchange. Wahoo, fun is on it's way for the oldster in OK.

Enjoy your stitching this week.

That's a great exchange for Outi, but I'm a little confused about her being in the Netherlands. I thought she lived in Finland?

Take care!!

What a lovely package you put together, the pinkeep is adorable. I'm glad you're finding some fun and light books to read. I'll have to check into the Miss Julia series. I think I've seen them in the store, but don't believe I've read any of them.
