Fall Stitched With Love Exchange Reveal

Hello Friends!
I recently participated I the Stitched With Love Exchange Fall Into Halloween Exchange.
Here is what I stitched...



This is a Prairie Schooler design from design book #141.
I added this little guy on the back...



Doesn't he look like the squirrel from the Ice Age movies that is always chasing the acorn.



I used some chenille from Nancy at the Victorian Motto Sampler to finish it off.
This is what package I sent off looked like...



My exchange partner was Lisa V from Lisa V's Lounge blog.
And this is what Lisa sent me....



Look at all these wonderful things. The stitched piece is a Bent Creek design that was finished as a flat fold. I took it to work with me to decorate my desk. I love the little fabric with the pumpkins and cats.
Thanks Lainey for organizing this exchange.

I wish I had time to participate in more of these, but I just barely keep up with my stitching. I am interested in seeing everyone already talking about setting stitching goals for 2013. I need to do this and more importantly I will need to adhere to them.

Thanks for all your kind thoughts and prayers.
Have a great Tuesday!

Wow. Nice exchange! Love the back door squirrel you added. I could never participate in one of these. Too much pressure for old farts.

Your little pillow for Lisa is so, so cute, Chris--just love the little squirrel on the back... And her gifts for you are equally nice! I just can't seem to get motivated to sign up for exchanges--I think I need many more hours in my day. Perhaps when I retire I'll do some...

The exchange pieces look great - I think it takes discipline to enter these exchanges (I don't have it I'm afraid). I hope things work out on the work front - not knowing is really hard.

Brigitte said...

Such a great exchange with two wonderful stitched exchange gifts. Enjoy yours!

Susan said...

Wonderful exchange. How was the chenille to work with?

Suzanne said...

A belated Happy Birthday!
