My Pinkeep Exchange to Zorah and other news

Zorah finally received the pinkeep I stitched for her for the Specific Finish exchange on the SBEBB. I stitched "Goodwill" from Little House Needleworks thread packs. Here it is:

Goodwill by Little House Needleworks

stitched on 28 ct. raw linen using charted Crescent Colours


I also sent her some skeins of Carrie's Threads, which I've just used myself recently and I really, really like them! I hope you enjoyed your package from me Zorah! I enjoyed stitching for you!

Next up: have you heard about stitching "squares" for other stitching friends and making them into a quilt? Annemarie has a bunch of information about it posted on her blog today.... go on over and read all about it! If you want to join in on the fun leave a comment to dear Annemarie and she'll add you to her list! She's thinking about setting up an exchange of sorts between interested stitchers. Details are fuzzy right now, but she's got a link to another blogger's blog about what she's doing with her "friendship squares" and she's "polling" other stitching bloggers to see if there is an interest. I'm keen on the idea myself, as I'm invisioning making pinkeeps (you know I've mentioned my desire for more and more of them!) so go on over and give An a visit to see if you'd be interested!
Ok, well I posted my stitchy surprise today! The dear Post Ladies told me 4 - 7 days and the recipient of my humble surprise will have it in her (or his) hot little hands and that's all I'm saying! :)
Ok, well I see my dear Postman just drove up to my mailbox...I think I'm going to go out to see if I have anything interesting in my mailbox besides bills! Until the next time!

  7. I was going to ask you to post a little something on your blog about the Friendship squares, but I see you've anticipated me. Great minds think alike :o)

    So this means we have to wait for another whole week to wait for pictures of your secret project? You're cruel, Vonna.
