Wipocalypse June 2012

My dear friend Diane and I have been doing personal exchanges through the holidays and July 4th is no exception. I received my exchange the other day from her and absolutely love it. I had never seen this design and the pillow Diane made with it is perfect. She also added some goodies like fabric scissors but the kicker was a "stitched finish" of one of MY wip's that she "stole" from my craftroom while visiting in March. Lol I was actually planning that day to look for it to bring to the cabin to finish it and her package arrived. That was such a great surprise and love it!!!!! Thank goodness it arrived when it did I would have tore up my craftroom looking for it. Lol



Also here is a picture of the pillow I stitched for her. I now have to stitch it for myself I love it.

I also managed to get Edgar's summer exchange finished up and out to him. I stitched birds and berries by LHN and made a recipe box with it. I included a few recipes and intend to send more throughout the year to him.

And I also recd my exchange from Jen the other day and here it is. Very cute patriotic pillow by shepherds Bush. I love how she finished the pillow. Thanks Jen!

These finishes of mine are all I have for wips this month as I have been working on a large model but will be finished tomorrow with it and will get back in the swing of things.

Wonderful exchange pieces, and I love the idea of giving a recipe box, then following up with favorite recipes later in the year.
