It is just getting hotter and hotter here in AZ. yuck! As long as the AC works i will be a happy camper. LOL I have been getting exchanges out lately and have some to share that have landed to their new homes. I also rec'd a few as well.
First up, from Tanya, i rec'd my exchange piece from her from the Holiday Exchange moderated by BeckySC. Tanya stitched a SamSarah design "Glory" for me and made it into a little bag. Very cute! it is up on my mantle with the rest of the "4th" pieces. THanks again Tanya!
Carolyn sent me another piece to finish for her. Carolyn stitched up JBW's baby stroller piece and wanted it finished into an ornament. This was a cute design and fun finish.
For the Holiday Exchange - 4th of July round I had Myra as my partner. I stitched up Slice of Freedom by Erica Michaels and made it into a pillow. I had the backing fabric in my stash for awhile and just never found the right design to use it with, well finally found it. perfect match.
Jill is my partner for the Friends Stitching through the Seasons exchange. Jill was wanting some Shepherd's Bush designs for her pieces and I am having fun with them. For spring i stitched her Scatter Kindness and for Summer i just stitched Scatter Freedom. This was another fun stitch and finished it into a really cute pillow i think. :) Also, here is a pic of the rest of the exchange i sent to Jill (minus the black iron basket, i just got that at Hobby Lobby for $2.00). :)
This has been a busy month or so for exchanges for me and i still had the Fair & Square 4th of July and Round #19 to do as well. Michele and I were finally paired up as partners. :) we decided to "finish" each other's pieces instead of sending them "un-finished" like what we normally do in the exchange. I stitched Patriotic Bouquet by BBD for Michele and finished it into a pinkeep. :)
I do have a few other exchanges that i have rec'd but need to get pics of them and then will update. I also got a few bargains at the antique store last weekend but again still need to take pics. LOL
Here is a picture of my oldest daughter (21), Brianna and her boyfriend Justin a couple weeks ago at my nephews birthday party. And one of our other daughter (19) Caitie holding her newest cousin Samantha. Caitie isn't fun to take pics of, she tends to be a pain in the butt so this is the best shot of her. LOL The boys (16) were too busy playing with the nerf guns and showing little Ryan (2)how to use them. LOL so no pics of them.
