Whew!

Finally my partner, Catherine Michele received my Monochromatic Exchange! Here it is: FIBERS: Stitched with French Blue NPI silk
DESIGN: A Mon Ami Pierre motif taken from The Stitcher
Stitched 1 over 1 on white linen
Finished as Pinkeep
{Back} with Catherine's Initial and my inititals and date

Thank heaven's!!! I was sincerely worried it was lost as I mailed it on the 8th....that's darn near 2 weeks that it was "in the mail" YIKES!

Thanks for visiting :) I'm still stitching....nothing to show...but I can tell you I'm this * * close to finishing my seasonal exchange and then I have three things to finish: USEBB Redwork Exchange, SBEBB What's the Buzz and then the Seasonal Exchangers Summer Exchange. Then I'll have to get stitching on USEBB Tin Topper and my Two Fair Squares....so no time to waste - I'm otta here! Until next time....

  8. It's beautiful, Vonna. I'm so glad it arrived safely for you - I sometimes wonder what the postal service does that makes mail take so long to arrive at its destination.

  15. That is lovely! I'm so glad that it found it's way to Catherine safely - I never understand why crossing the border adds at least a week to mailing times.

  41. Hi Vonna,

    Here I am visiting from my new little blog. I have been checking on yours for months and even had a link in my favorites to your tutorial blog (thank you for that!)I adore your pinkeep - when I saw it the other day I actually went looking for the chart. I can see that adding stash is a real hazard of this hobby. I really appreciated your nice comment and hope to "talk" to you again soon.

    Michele
