My F&S From Christina L in Sweden.... (and a bit more!)


I received my Round 5 F&S from Christina L... isn't it adorable? She changed the house to gray to match our house & did the "sweethearts" as our 20th anniversary was in Feb. That was so sweet of her wasn't it? She also sent other goodies... a cute Helga Mandl pattern, trims, of which I will use the green to finish the squares into a pinkeep, and some yummy chocolates! Thank you again Christina, everything is just wonderful!!

I have actually been stitching a bit. I have more than one piece I'm working on right now.... an exchange piece that I can't talk about, and last night I worked on LHN's My Needles Work. I think it's just adorable & I plan to hang it by my desk to remind me to get out of this room quicker each evening so I can go & stitch! ;-) I also have an itch to pull out several larger pieces, including And A Forest Grew & my personalized sampler. That's thanks to a call from Carolyn NC who will be at my house Saturday to stitch. I'm going to blame it all on her! lol

I'll post more pics soon... and I'm waiting on a special package from the other side of the world, can't wait to show everyone what a lovely lady was kind enough to send me. It's an early "birthday gift" for myself (which is next week!) and I'm thrilled about it.....

Until then.... happy stitching!

Christina did a wonderful job with her squares. I do love the Erica Michaels design, and like you there are so many things that I want to stitch and just not enough hours in the day.

It's in the mail Amy so I wish it much speed - the mail in this direction seems to be extra slow at the moment, or maybe I am just too impatient!
