Here Is My Exchange From Iza

I am so excited and happy to receive these goodies from Iza aka 5Horizons .
I really love my Pumpkin Biscornu by The Sweetheart Tree. I have seen this design and was drooling over it, but knew I would never find the time to stitch one for myself.
I also have a beautiful pumpkin coaster and a package of felt balls ( I have an idea how I am going to use them). I forgot to add some orange ribbon to the pic but am going to use it with my ball project.
There were also 7 skeins of hand dyed silk floss that have me itching to use. Four of them are  fall colors, which means more pumpkins.
I really enjoyed the post card from Poland.
Thank you so much, Iza.

I love both and all the goodies. As soon as I can get good pictures I will share with you. We have had rainy cloudy weather all week. Thanks so must Iza, I am doing a Happy Dance!

pinkeep and pumpking exch

For my partners who sent packages to me, please bear in mind that when I left Canada the packages had not arrived. I have my mail forwarded to Florida for the winter so it may take a bit longer for them to arrive to me but I will post as soon as I receive them.

Wondering If Pinkeep Arrived

I mailed my pinkeep on Oct. 4th. I haven't heard anything from my partner.
It had a long way to go but this is quite a while.

Pumpkin Exchange Rec'd

Alrighty then!
Yesterday my nice Mr. Postman brought me a package all the way from the Netherlands from Liz J. for the Pumpkin Exchange. Liz did a WONDERFUL job on the beautiful little biscornu...shown back and front. She also sent along the cute handmade card PLUS a piece of nice fabric shown in the background of photos. I plan to use some of that in my crazy quilting blocks. She also sent along some extras of those cute little falls leaves, beads and ribbon trims as well.
I love it all! Thank you so much Liz for the biscornu and the great little giftys as well!

Pinkeep arrived!

I am very happy - I recieved my pinkeep today! It was stitched and finished by Nicole. I love the design and the color she used. Just look:

And these little birdies... Aren't they lovely?

Thank You, Nicole!

Beautiful Pumpkin Ornament Received

I just received a beautifully made fall ornament from Bonnie for my Pumpkin Exchange. She stitched a Lizzie Kate pattern (my 1st) on 32 ct fabric. I love the fabric she matched the pattern up with. It's perfect! And the button embellishment accents it beautifully as well. Her stitching is superb! Thank you Bonnie for this delictible treat!

Fall Pin Keep Rec'd

Hi all..
I received my Fall Pin Keep in the mail almost 2 weeks ago after being gone for a week myself. Then we got called for a family funeral and had to leave town again this past week and just got back.
Thank you So much NAN for the great little pin keep! She read my blog and found out I was also a quilter so she made this cute little pin keep in a quilty fall leaf theme! It's a popular quilt pattern as well! It's just too cute!
Thanks again NAN. I LOVE it!

Slight Delay for Flat Fold Exchange

I actually didn't forget - aren't you proud of me?  But I am going to delay the start of sign-ups for the next exchange a week or so.  It will be for a flat fold - here are some sites with instructions:
