HoE Spring Exchange Received

I received this beauty in the mail yesterday.  It is from Marie P., a very accomplished stitcher and finisher.  It is done in some of my favorite color combinations too!  Needless to say I absolutely love it.  Marie took pity on me and became my mercy stitcher as my partner has gone missing.  I can't wait to fill it with some needles and threads and scissors.  Oh my, now what project can I start that will use my new stitcher's pouch?  I bet I can think of something. Thank you so much Marie!

We had quite a bit of weather in OK last night.  Evidently I slept through it which is unusual because I don't sleep well.  It must have rained pretty hard.  The ditches beside my place are full of water, and I can see how high the water rose in the yard.  One plus, it is cool this morn.  I know lots of folks are ready for warm weather.  I am not one of them.  Cool weather is my preference. 

Guess I'll get my day started.  Marie, I'm sipping on a cup of Community Coffee!

Hoe Spring Exchange Received by Amy

I read that Amy received her Hoe Exchange piece from me today.  I chose to stitch primitivebettys "Tulip Time".  I think this design is so cute.  I used DMC threads and a 28ct cashel linen called Provence Lavender.  I ruched some ribbon for the trim.  First time I have ever done a larger piece with the ruched trim.  I think it turned out great.  Amy reported that she is recovering from surgery, so Get Well Soon!
