Harvest Exchange

Well, it is finished but I haven't been able to get to the store to get the mailing envelope. I will mail soon I promise. I have finally gotten settled in and am again stitching. I am so far behind, we had to stay with friends until the previous tenants house closed, late as usual. Three weeks behind. I couldn't get to my stitching until then. Sorry, I won't be doing the Christmas exchange. I already have two others to get done and a RR on the go. Maybe next time for Easter maybe. Until then, Keep stitching, Keep smiling and always remember to ENJOY.

Harvest Exchange from Aubree

I finally found the camera and got to snap a picture of this beautiful Harvest Exchange I received this week.
Harvest Exchange from Aubree

The little scissor fob is weighted with something that feels suspiciously like BBs. I really love the fabric Aubree used for the needle book, along with the 'Fall' design it just feels like such a happy little piece. I'll bet she had fun putting that together (LOL). There were also some really cute 'extras' in the package which will be included in my blog post. Thank you so much Aubree, this is a really lovely exchange piece.

Oh, and I finally managed to get my harvest piece finished, it will go in the mail first thing tomorrow. Sorry I am so awful late partner. You all should see me sitting in my chair with my feet all tucked up and my knees in my face trying to stitch, hubby keeps threatening to get a picture but I told him I'd throw a chair at him if he does. Anyway, I thank my dear partner for being so patient with me. You'll receive it soon now.

Happy Stitching,

LHN Exchange

Hi guys

So sorry I haven't been around. In a way I wish I was still off sick!! At least I had heaps of blogging and stitching time. These days I am out of the house at 5.30am and not home til 6 most evenings. It sucks!! But things will change (they better lol)

Thank you so much to Yoyo for keeping things going! I will email you this afternoon :-) I'm grabbing some computer and me time!

I have loved seeing everyones Harvest exchanges arriving!! They have been beautiful!!

I have waited in vain for Wendy's LHN to arrive, but finally have to giev up I think :-(. I have stitched a replacement so will get that off to you on Monday Wendy. I did want to show off the missing piece though so I'll post a pic of it on my blog later on when I update it (so call it vanity lol, I was soooo proud of how it turned out!!)


Harvest Exchange from Lisa V.!

Lisa's package was in my mailbox last night! She stitched Bent' Creek's "Giving Thanks" and made it into an adorable pinkeep! She also included some fabric that already is being put to use.

Thanks so much Lisa..I love my package!!!

Exchange received

I woke up to an e-mail in my box this morning from Aubree. I received her beautiful exchange a day or two ago but hadn't posted yet because the dratted camera has disappeared again. I should have sent Aubree an e-mail but I figured the camera would turn up the minute I did that. Well, no camera yet, and poor Aubree is worried I didn't get it so I'm posting. I'll get a picture as soon as we figure out were DH put the camera after the football last weekend. Sorry I made you worry.

Harvest Time Exchange received.....

So sorry it's taking me so long to post that I have received my "Harvest Time" exchange but I have been out of town for what seems like FOREVER! I am FINALLY home and I think settled back in here for the coming winter.
Elisa sent me the cutest little pillow with a harvest design on it! It's approx. 8" square and will sit on a small shelf I have with a nice fall candle. She also sent me a couple of flosses. I can use those ALWAYS too!
Thank you SO MUCH Elisa!

New Exchange Starting

Oh girls, I'm so sorry. I'm late with just about everything. I haven't sent my exchange yet and I haven't posted the next one either. My back is giving me such fits that I can't sit, lay down or standup without some severe pain somewhere. I'm getting pretty frustrated with it too! Anyway, no stitching happening and if I need to post to a blog it's takes hours of working on the post because I can only stick with it for a few minutes at a time.

I only remember talking to Marie once about our next exchange...and I apologize Marie, I'm thinking it's getting late and we need to get this next one going so I'm just going to post it and you can yell at me later if I didn't get it right (LOL).

We will have only a short two weeks to sign up because with stitching time that will run us pretty close to Christmas time. Ok, stitchers, are your needles ready? Our next exchange is Anything Christmas. You have until October 31 to sign up. As usual please send me an e-mail (yoyo_9203 at yahoo dot com), and please put "Anything Christmas" in the subject line. Include your mailing address and any ideas you might like to suggest for future exchanges.

I think I'm going to have to sit out Anything Christmas (and that's my favorite too) but I don't want to say I can do it and then be behind again later. I apologize again for being late with this...and to my Harvest Time partner, I did get a few more stitches in, but I really had a hard time with it, so I'd rather make it right than hurried. I'll get it done just as fast as I can. You are such a dear to be so understanding, thank you.

Ok, fill up my e-mail box with signups for the Anything Christmas Exchange and you'll make me a happy camper (LOL).

Harvest Exchange Has Left the Building!

I mailed my Harvest exchange piece this morning. I hopped across the border since I live so close in hopes that since it doesn't have to go through customs it will get to its new home much faster!

Harvest Time Exchange....

Hi all...My HARVEST TIME exchange is on its way to its new owner! I hope it travels safe and she really likes it!

Harvest Time..

exchange is on its way to my partner, hope she likes it!

Pumpkins FOR Gillie - from Wendy Jo!

You know how, when you are stitching an exchange, there is that tiny moment at the end when you wish you were keeping the piece because you've got quite fond of it? And you suspect you'll probably never stitch it for yourself? Well, this time I don't have to worry as I received a beautiful pinkeep from Wendy Jo yesterday - in the same pattern that I stitched for Bonnie! Thank you so much, my first pinkeep and I love it. It reminds me that I need to make one and conquer my fear of doing so! I also received three gorgeous threads from GAST in lovely Fall-y colours.
Bonnie, thank you for your kind words and I'm sorry I forgot to mention that it was an LHN!
Now that I'm back with the good girls (having got my exchange completed in time!) - what are we doing next?

My Pumpkins From Gillie

Today was a Happy Day in Gilbert. The mailman left a parcel in the box from Gillie.

It was a wonderful gift stitched so beautifully along with a pretty butterfly card, some Thread Drops and a skein of Weeks Dye Works Harvest.

She didn't mention who the designer was, but I knew immediately that it was LHN's Pumpkins cause I was thinking about stitching one for myself. I am really into pumpkins this year. Thanks so much Gillie, you chose the perfect design to stitch for me. It is my first Little House Needlework.

My Harvest Time exchange piece is on its way to.......?

Good grief, my head is full of radon testing (and remediation, alas!), booking removal vans and wondering how one reasonably sized house can take FOUR days to be packed up!

Anyway, because of all that completely forgot to say that my parcel left the Post Office on October 7th, and it should arrive soon, I hope!

I received a package in the mail yesterday

A big thank you to Maggee! I wish my camera was working right now so I could post a picture. It is very nicely done. She did one of the squares from Automnology and it is finished beautifully. Maggee, if you have a picture you can post before I get my hands on a camera, please do!

Thank you again. It is hanging on a door knob right now where everyone can see it :)

Harvest Time Exchange

Here is the wonderful pinkeep that Marie made for the exchange. I will definitely be using the key chain or maybe just hang it so I can see it all the time. Thank you for being my partner Marie.
