Giant smile on my face! I received a wonderful package from my exchange partner Mary on Saturday. The exchange was for the ILCS group and was called "Kit in a Container". Mary was ever so lovely and generous and sent me two gorgeous projects to work on: a BEAUTIFUL Mill Hill Autumn Wreath kit and lovely JBW kit as well. Also in the package were some wonderful goodies: A cute pumpkin basket and some Autumn potpourri, a piece of linen, some needles (Petites! I've been dying to try these-I know someone who uses these exclusively), a prefinished bag with an Aida insert to stitch on, and a Star De-Tailor. She must have been reading my mind with that one! I have been wanting one of these forever but every time I order stash I always forget ;) So I absolutely love everything and will definitely get to stitching at least one of these ASAP. So Thank you Mary, it was lovely being your partner!
Also I have been making some progress on the Mansfield Park Sampler and I also found a great frame for it at a bargain store. Only problem is that the frame already has a kind of generic kitchen print and I take it one is not really supposed to take it out. In other words the backing is kind of bracketed in. Oh, and I broke the glass on the way home but I had planned on taking it out anyway so no biggie. Worst case scenario, the thing cost me maybe seven dollars.
I am gonna get all ambitious and say I will finish this week but I have been helping my husband put up some of his baseball cards to sell on ebay so that is making me extra busy these days. Have a wonderful week everyone!
