SBEBB Spring House TO Vonna.... AND Happy Anniversary to Sandy & Randy!!

Vonna received her "Spring House" earlier this week. I made it especially for her with her fav colors, sheep (of course) and her name. I had this lovely Moda fabric that I used on the back of the pinkeep, only I didn't take a pic of it, but you can see it on her bog. I do hope you will enjoy it Vonna... it was stitched with love! :-)

I also want to wish my dear friend Sandy & her DH Randy a wonderful anniversary today. I can't believe it's been 5 years already! Time sure is flying by! Hope it's the best year yet for both of you!!!

The same day that I sent Vonna's exchange, I mailed a F&S exchagne to Gaby in Germany. Hopefully she will received it soon. This past week, I have finished a SBEBB exchange piece & started on yet another exchange piece. I HOPE to do the finishing tomorrow, we'll see. I'm almost caught up with exchanges, aren't you impressed? :-) Now Sandy tells me that she mailed a RR off to me yesterday, so maybe that will arrive on Monday. My "want to stitch" list is so long, if I could stitch 12 hours a day, I'll never get half of it done anyway! lol

BTW, if you haven't browsed the Online Needlework Show yet, be sure to shop by & check it out. There are some interesting items to be found. One design I think I'm going to order for myself is shown below. It's NOT my usual style or taste, but for some reason, I really like it. Now when/if I'll get around to stitching it, who knows, but as we all know, "need has nothing to do with it". ;-)

The Poem reads:

An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet regardless of time, place or circumstance. The thread may stretch or tangle but it will never break.

Calligraphy reads:
Destined To Meet

It's by Cross-Stitch-Art
They have a lot of interesting designs on their website, which is where I found this.

Hope everyone has a great weekend & happy stitching!
