Sharing two exchanges I've sent....

These two exchanges are via The Make A Wish BB, (run by Becky SC) where someone wishes for something specific (or fairly specific) and then one person volunteers to stitch their wish. For every wish you grant, you will receive one. Here are my first two...

The Halloween Needle Book is for Shelleen as per her wish & I hope she likes it. It's a SanMan design & I chose it because of the perfect "Boo" fabric I have. Also, her DH was born on Halloween.... :-) Hope you enjoy it Shelleen!
The second is a bird biscornu for Becky SC, which she wished for. It's a Pam Kellogg design & I found it at Pam's Etsy shop. She has a series of 4 bird biscornus. I choose this one for Becky because one, it's the "summer" one and it sure feels like summer in SC, and two, it seemed more like Becky because of the "Bee" colors. I do hope she likes it, even though my DH says you can't tell that those are birds. I guess I see them because I knew what it was supposed to be. Anyway, Becky says she likes it. :-)
I haven't stitched but once in a week. It was a busy week here & I was also a bit under the weather. I think I'm mostly better today, I hope so at least! We're going to see my parents & take my dad his father's day gift probably around lunch time & then I hope to stitch this afternoon while Ray puts our new computer in. This "old" one has just gotten so slow it's almost impossible to get any work done in a timely manner. I've been *kind of complaining* about it for awhile now, and while he was trying to help me with some images last Saturday he realized just how slow it is & said hey, we need a new computer.... ;-) I'm glad I asked for that help! ;-) Anyway, I'm not sure what I'll stitch on. I have so much... a F&S piece, 2 RR's, my weekly SAL on Happy Home, LOTS of WIP's and lots of new things I want to start. I guess I'll see when I sit down to stitch!

Oh, if you are a Bent Creek fan, did you see the new Snapperbet series? I think it's cute! You can see it here: http://downsunshinelane.com/bentcreek.htm Bent Creek has had some cute series designs for the last few years, but I haven't stitched any of them. Maybe someday.........

Hope you have a great week ahead & happy stitching!!

PS- Nicole - WELCOME TO SC! Hope to see you next Saturday!

Love the biscornu Amy. Have to agree with Ray though, the birds don't look like birds until you know that's what they are.
