RR home, exchanges rec'd and more pillows

I have had a great mail week this week. I had two exchanges delivered to me along with my Friendship RR has made it home.
First here is the PIF exchange i rec'd from Jules. We are in the PIF exchange together and Jules stitched a floss tag for me and included lots of other goodies. The most adorable scissors that i have never seen before too. Thanks Jules!!


Faye is my partner in the FSTTS exchange that a few of us are doing. Faye stitched one of the patriotic stockings by BBD for me and finished it amazing like she always does. :) She also included lots of goodies, some gorgeous red 35ct linen, some dirty linen, red floss, uncle sam figurine and a patriotic scissor fob that has jumped onto my ginghers already. :) THanks again Faye!



My Friendship RR that i have been doing for the last year has made it home. It has been through the US, Canada and the Netherlands. Thank you to all who stitched your hearts on it. Now i just need to get it finished up.


My sewing machine has been smoking this week. I finished another 3 pillows and have just a few more that need to be handsewn together and will post them later on. I finished up Fa La La by LHN into a little pillow, Faith by Sampler Girl and this other cute little piece that Amy from SC sent to me since she didn't want it anymore. I finally got around to finishing it into a little pillow.




One more thing that i have been doing is trying to make polymer clay buttons. So far they hve turned out good. My first batch was the batch of pink and white flowers, etc. Yesterday i made a bunch of patriotic buttons in different shapes. I will be making more buttons in the near future but only with the cutouts that i have. LOL
