First off, I received this little fella from Julianne. We are in a private exchange group and this is what she stitched. When I saw the name on the return address I knew I was in for a great surprise. She didn't disappoint me. In addition to the stitched piece she sent a chart, a notepad, and beautiful piece of linen. Thank you so much. Did I mention I love it!!?
Then I received this chart and chart pack from a dear blogger that has a monthly give away. I couldn't believe it when I saw I won for March. BeckySC is a beautiful lady who is so generous. I thank her. This is a wonderful gift.
And here's some stitching I did for the HoE LHN exchange. I had Janet B. as my partner. On her wish list she asked for socks and seed, so I had to comply. Well, you know, I didn't really have to, but I wanted to. Check out her blog to see the back of the piece. I totally forgot to get a photo of it. In her description she referred to the braid I used as "gimp braid". I have never heard it called that, but I'm glad I know now.
We had soup and sandwiches before Lenten services at church tonight. One of the members brought a Chicken-Mushroom soup that was super. I wanted more, but controlled myself. I didn't want to fall asleep in church!
Have a good evening.
