Lots of Spring Up in Here.......

Hello Friends,


Thank you for your kind words on my trip to Arizona.  It was great to get away.  After a week of back to reality, I'm ready to hop back on the plane. 


It has been a busy Spring around here.  I've been busy stitching for several exchanges.  The exchanges have all arrived at their destination so I can now show you all the goodies.

 

Michele and I did a St. Patrick's Day exchange.
Michele sent a great pot 'o gold.


Here is the stitched pieced I sent Michele.
I forgot to take a picture of the goodies I sent along.

Thanks for a great exchange Michele.  I feel like a very lucky girl ;-)


Next up is my traditional Easter exchange with Karen
Look at the bunnelicious goodies "Easter Bunny Karen" sent.


 The Easter basket was full of goodies but I dismantled it before I took a picture.
The chocolate was calling to me...

Here is the piece I stitched for Karen. 
I forgot to take a picture of the goodies I sent.
Miss Lapin

The last exchange I have to show you is the friend's
a small group does every year.
Michelle (no blog) is the person I send to.
Here is the stitched piece I sent to her.
I forgot to take a picture of the goodies I sent with the exchange.
(Are you noticing a pattern here?)

For this exchange Edgar sends to me.


He sent a great stitched piece finished on this gorgeous box.



And all the goodies.
Thank you for a great exchange Edgar.  I'm looking forward to a great year.


I've been stitching quite a bit.  I'm back to working on some bigger pieces.  Currently, I'm working on Prairie Schooler's Sweeping Cobwebs.  I hope to have it finished and off to the framer soon.  While in Arizona I started Ann Lockart and Blackbird Design's Tis the Season.
I'm enjoying them all and have a hard time deciding which one to work on when it comes stitchin' time.

Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comments.  I appreciate them so much.

Have a great week!

Keep on stitchin'
Nan

Hello there! What a bunch of really nice exchange pieces! Love them all. I really like the Got Luck one, and wonder who is the designer? Haven't seen it before. Bunnelicious made me laugh!! How funny!! Hugs!
