Yesterday I received not one, but two squishy packages in the post. Any day a squishy package arrives with my name on it is a very good day!

The first was some Siesta bars from Ann. I am looking forward to trying a different kind of device to keep my fabric taut while I stitch. Thanks again Ann!

Next up was an exchange from Sandra. Sandra went above and beyond with her exchange. Not only did she stitch me a gorgeous Blackbird Designs pillow, she also made me this amazing quilted needlebook - wow!! Seriously, my exchange to her sucks in comparison! Sandra also included some lovely extras - some threads and a sweet pair of scissors, and a gorgeous card of Swansea Bay (beautiful!). Thank you again Sandra!

Exchange received from Sandra in Wales

Ann also let me know that she has received my exchange to her. I stitched N is for Needle by Carriage House Samplings.

Exchange for Ann in Scotland

Back soon with a sampler update. I have made a fair bit of progress since I last posted.

Thank you for the kind comment you left on the birth of Felix.

Lovely finish on Elizabeth and nice progress on Moira.
