TWO Exchanges... (one sent, one received!)

Hi there, how has your week been going? I've had a headache most of the week. I guess it's mostly from allergies, but it's time for a break! I haven't stitched much at all, but I do have two pieces I can share with you today!
First, from Kate in the Make A Wish Exchange group, I received the lovely pieces below! My "wish" was for something done in redwork, and Kate stitched a lovely biscornu and also a little humbug fob for me. Aren't they great!?! I know it took awhile to add all those little beads around the biscornu... it's wonderful!! Thank you Kate for granting my wish & sending me such lovely items!! :-)
Next is my SBEBB Garden Exchange piece that I sent to Myrna. It's from a Plum Pudding chart & I hope Myrna likes it. I changed the DMC's to hand-dyed threads & made it into a small pillow. I think it turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself. :-)

I have two more that are stitched & one is finished & out the door. The other is stitched & I have everything out to finish it, maybe this evening. I'm also working on my first "Make A Wish" exchange piece for Shelleen. I hope to finish it up & have it ready to mail early next week. After that is done, I'm stitching on something for MYSELF!!!!!!!!!! I'm going to be selfish for a bit. :-)

Hope you're having a great week so far & happy stitching!!

Amy,

Sorry to hear that you've been feeling poorly. Headaches sure have a way of taking the joy out of living.

Your exchanges (received and given) are both really lovely. Have a good weekend and I hope your headache is gone.
