I hope you all had a good week.
I have been putting needle to thread every chance I could. Not much housework got done but that's ok.
My first stitch I can't show you as it is a square on Dani's Neighborhood RR. Beatrice and I finished her last two squares and she has not seen it yet. We will be giving it to her next weekend and I will show photos then.
I stitched a needlebook for the Make A Wish Exchange and have received notice that it had arrived. I have only made one other needlebook for myself and this one I am much happier with.
I understand my recipient liked it.
My Mirabilia RR is finished and ready to go in the mail. Well, except for the $%^%##$ thread that I lost and cannot find anywhere.
I received a package in the mail yesterday from the Netherlands. Annemarie has started a new Sisterhood pattern and I am the second person to receive it.
Heidi (from Holland) was first and she included a lovely piece of hand dyed fabric and a skein of Carrie's Threads - Hot Pink for me.
I also received a lovely RAK from Erin. She has been following our Mirabilia RR exploits and when I said I was low on fairies sent me this pattern as a gift. Thank you Erin. I appreciate it very much and will try to see that it gets used during this RR.
Other than that, I pulled threads for a couple of new starts. Well, I finished Dani's RR so that counts as a finish. I have pulled the fabric and threads for Melissa's blogaversary prize and the fabric and threads for the Sisterhood II.
On the swan front - the first couple who had little ones have no more. Predators have gotten them. The second couple have been sitting on the nest for two weeks now with no luck. So, no new little swans this year.
Thank you to everyone who tossed their name in the cereal bowl for my blogaversary. I appreciate you taking the time to stop by, read my little posts and comment when you can.
Take care one and all.
Oh, and the frogs! I'm hoping by putting them on my blog they will stay away from my stitching.
