A gift from and for Lynn

 The long pillow above is from my friend Lynn.  We belong to a sorority that has secret sisters.  Gifts are exchanged periodically during the year.  Well, last night was reveal night, and the pillow was one of my gifts.  She did a fantastic job of finishing it. I gave her the little Halloween pillow for taking care of my cat Tobie while I was on my trip to Chicago. Thank you Lynn, you know I love it.
This beauty was received yesterday as part of the Seasonal Exchange group.  Elisa was my partner, thanks so much I love it..  My photo doesn't do this piece justice.  The color is more vibrant in real life.  I really like the way she finished the pillow.  The design is a Bent Creek piece, Autumn House.  I'm gong to have to try this finish.  When I saw the envelope in the mailbox I was a bit puzzled, because I thought I had received all my exchanges.  Well, slap me silly, I totally had forgotten I signed up for this exchange.  I pulled all the threads, selected the design and fabric before I left for Chicago.  Guess I just forgot.  Anyway, needless to say, I am stitching my piece for my partner!  I believe I'll make the mailing deadline.

Guess I'd better get off the computer and get to stitching.

Hi Becky,

Is your needle smoking today?

I love the little Bent Creek pillow you received. I am sure you would do a geat blanket stitch. It is a fun way to give a more rustic look.

Happy stitching, my friend!

Nice craft work. Nice blog work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the Nav Bar located at the top of my site.
