Fair and Square Exchange Round #2 Part 1

We've just reached the second deadline in the Fair and Square Friendship Square Exchanges that I co-host with the Lovely Annemarie We had an "odd" number of participants this round so I had to stitch two sets of squares. The first set has been sent and received and I thought I'd share them...the photos are better if you click on them :) My Squares from the sweet Donna
She stitched a lovely motif from Nature's Beauty LHN design.

Here's my squares I sent to Donna....I used CCN's newest Thread Pack -PEONY for my inspiration...but I rearranged and left out some of the design to fit within the guidlines.

Well folks that's it for me today. I've just got done working Fri-Sat-Sun and I'm a bit ill...I think I've gotten my first head cold/virus of the season. I feel like a MAC truck has ran over me, backed up and rolled over me again, and put 'er in drive and finished me off.

Until next time.....

  2. Vonna - your squares are gorgeous, and the ones Donna sent you are very cute.

    I sure hope you get over your head cold soon, they're the worst. Get some sleep and drink some tea!

  8. Oh I know exactly how you feel...about this time last year, I caught a bug and I thought it was going to take up permanent residence. I think it finally went away when it finally got cold...sometime in January, I believe. :-(

    BTW, I found out some relatives of mine (my mom's cousin) live in Elletsville. I'd never heard of it, but the atlas says it's in your neck of the woods. :-) Small world, huh?

  17. Dearest Vonna, You need to get a "neddy pot," like Dr. Oz on Oprah swears by, so you'll get rid of that head cold asap!!! Go directly to your local pharmacy and ask for one!! :) Did you see the demo on Oprah? LOL
    I am absolutely in love with that Peony color thread...now I'm on a quest to get it! Love your squares given and received. I hope you feel so much better after "Grannie Neddy" (or is it netty?) takes care of you!
    Love and hugs,
    Deb

  18. Oh no! Can you stitch with a head like that? I certainly hope you can, because you need a bit of stitching time after all the work you did. And I'm not even talking about the two sets of squares you had to stitch. I love all the squares, both yours and Donna's. Get well soon! {{{{hugs}}}}
