A Couple of Stitchy Gifts

Happy Monday Everyone!

I don't have any stitching of my own to share BUT..........
Look at what landed in my mailbox the last couple of days.
There is nothing better after a long day of wranglin' kiddos than to come home to gifts in the mail.

My Lizzie Kate exchange arrived today.  Elisa stitched and finished this cute Spring Boxer for me.
It is resting comfortably on my Spring shelf.  It feels right at home among its friends.
Thanks for a great exchange Elisa!


On Saturday I came home to a great big box sitting on my front porch.  Karen had been cleaning out her craft room and sent me several texts asking if I want this....or if I would finish stitching that.....
Well when I opened the box I was in awe of the stitching goodies she sent me.  There were charts that I wanted, aida fabric that she said she would never use, some unfinished kits she said she would never get around to finishing. I'm sure I'm forgetting to include something that was in the box.
 WOW is all I can say.  I guess it pays to have good stitching buddies doesn't it?
Along with all the goodies was this cute Spring pillow and some Easter goodies. 
Thanks for the box of goodies my friend. 



Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments.  I'll be back soon with some finishes.
I have Notforgotten Farm's Ah! Tis Spring stitched but
I'm having trouble deciding how to finish it. 
Hopeful inspiration will strike some time soon. 

Keep on stitchin' on,
Nan

I love it when the mailman brings me something besides a bill. A nice magazine, a package with stitchy goodies, even a little love note - just a little something to end the day on a bright note! And, you hit the jackpot!! Hugs!!

You got some seriously great mail! It is really fun when you have no idea what is going to be in the box!
