Stars & Stripes

Greetings Friends,

I hope this post finds you all well and finding time to stitch.  Thank you to everyone who entered my 2nd Blogaversary giveaway.  There is still time. 
I'll be drawing a a winner Monday evening.


This week has been a busy week for our mailman. 

My little black sheep spoils me once again with a wonderful exchange.

Thank you Edgar!  I love everything!


Here is the exchange I sent Michelle.
I stole Michelle's picture from the Friends
blog as I forgot to take one myself.

Karen and I always do a 4th of July exchange.
As usual, Karen spoils me with another great exchange.
I love it all Karen! 

Here is what I sent Karen for our 4th of July exchange.
While visiting Karen in March a came across the Long May She Wave
 piece in her WIP basket. Knowing we were going to do the 4th exchange
I whisked the piece back to Indiana with me to finish.
Although fun, now Karen thinks there is a WIP fairy and wants
 to know when she can expect the next one.  :-)


The Tree of Life Samplings retreat was this weekend.  Work commitments kept me from registering for the retreat and I was super bummed.  As it turns out, my schedule changed and Jan so graciously allowed me to crash her party for an evening.  It was great to meet some of my blogland friends in person.  I took my camera but wouldn't you know it....I took no pictures.  I'm sure everyone is on their way home and you'll start seeing some posts soon.  There are a few posts and you can find them here and here.
 
Thank you all so much for your kind comments on my Star Spangled Garden. 
You always make my day and as I read your blogs I find inspiration.

Keep on stitchin'
Nan
