A birthday and an exchange

I heard from Julianne she had received my birthday gift to her. We are doing a private birthday exchange and hers just happens to be in May. I chose to stitch the birth sampler from the Prairie Schooler Leaflet "Old MacDonald." The OM is such a fun leaflet to stitch from. Julianne said she loved the little pillow. I know I do!

I also saw where Kerstin received her Friends Through Threads Blackbird Designs exchange. I stitched from the book "Thank you Sarah Tobias." She said she had wanted to stitch one of the long pillows and now she doesn't have to. I must admit I love these little longs.

I'm still working on cleaning. I have to do a little, stitch a little, then clean a little more. My back is somewhat sensitive so I have to nurse it along.

Packing has begun for my Mt. Rushmore trip. I can't believe it's about time to leave. Early Saturday morning I'll be on my way.

Well, heard the dryer go off, so gotta fold some clothes. Have a great week.

Two very lovely pieces of stitching. I love those long pillows as well. Now I have the sewing machine, I think I am going to give one a try.
