Michele (BFF) finished and presented me with my new stitching bag...it matches the scissors fob, pin pillow, stitcher's caddy, and wallet she and I made a few years ago. Now, when I go to a stitching event, I will be styling...and matching!

But this was the extra special gift inside...
So precious, and just look at that sweet little blue bird!!
Thank you for thinking of me April!! You are such a dear :-)
More goodies cam ein the mail as a result of the Spring/Easter Exchange I hosted once again. Stitchers are receiving their exchange packages now, and there are some super sweet photos to share...
First up are my own lovely goodies from Gabi...she stitched a sweet heart-shaped Easter ornie and an adorable little bluebird scissors fob (scissors not included). She also added some delicous German truffles; awesome fabrics, threads, buttons, and lace trim; a great little DMC pattern book of small stitching projects; and a darling German Easter card! I was so overwhelmed by her generosity and attention to my wish list. Thank you so much, Gabi...I love all of it and will treasure the sweet handemades for many years :-)

Here is Joanne's beautiful gathering of exchange goodies for Kathy (no blog)...
Hope to have more photos and links to share in the coming days...it was another great exchange, and I am already excited to get started on the Haunted Halloween Exchange come September :-)
************SPECIAL NEWS FLASH**************
PRIM LOVERS: I started a FB group for stitchers and designers of primitive designs, and it is growing like gangbusters...with over 550 members already :-)! I am so pleased with its success. Everyone is so talented, supportive, and mature...you should see all the lovely finishes that people are sharing; tips and advice going back and forth; and the wonderful group freebies from our awesome designer members. If you want to get in on the fun, just click here and join us...it's free, but very ADDICTIVE!!
I have been busy with my own stitching...while trying to keep up with all the wonderful prim posts on the FB group. Here is my latest finish...
I adapted a freebie by My Happy Memories to prim it up as a stitcher's caddy. This one is going to a special blogging friend who has been having a rough go of things lately...hope she likes it, and it gets a smile out of her :-). It was a joy to stitch and create, and definitely a finish I plan to use again in the future! And, of course, I filled it with lots of stitching bits and bobs!!
