Stars and Stripes Forever

I love the 4th of July and patriotic themed stitchwork. I made myself a Little House Needleworks pyn pillow to celebrate. I decided to use a very simple finish on it. Lazyitis has entered this tired old body of mine. After finishing it, I decided to add some pyns for the heck of it, so it became my pyn pillow. The pyns aren't in very tight, so I can always remove them if I want. It's a really cute design and I enjoyed stitching it. What do you think?
I also finished the HoE LHN exchange piece. I enjoyed stitching it so much. Hope my partner likes it. Have no idea what I'll start next. Perhaps another LHN since they are so simple and fun too.
Enjoy the rest of the week and have some fun stitching.

ABC Exchange from Joan S.

Yesterday was another great mail day. My SBEBB ABC exchange was waiting on me when I got home. It was from none other than Mama Joan of the Stitching Squad. She really spoilt me "rotten" with a Bent Creek design featuring one of their quirky birds made into a pinkeep. I dearly love their little birds. Also included was a too cute teeny chicken pincushion, some abc fabric, floss rings which she made herself, Just Nan's "Noah's Rainbow', mints, buttons, and ribbon. The entire exchange was in a stitching pouch I'm guessing she made because it has the same fabric as the backing on the pinkeep. Thank you so much Joan. I love the exchange and goodies!

Long time no post and exchange received

My mood hasn't been the best these past few weeks. Haven't stitched, blogged or anything else. I was under a deadline to finish an exchange today. Successfully got the SBEBB ABC exchange in the mail. It doesn't have too far to go, so should be in my partner's mailbox next week. I also finished the beading on my sister's name tree also. Maybe I'll be back on track now.
The mailman did bring a surprise package today. I received the HoE Freebie exchange from Karen K. It's a beautiful design. She included lots of purple which really lifted my spirits. There was also a Just Nan chart, some beads, skeins of thread, and fabric. Thank you Karen, I love it all. By the way, this is my first ever exchange to be received from Australia. What a great treat! Later...
