Another great exchange!

"Hands that give also receive."
Arthur Unknown

It was another wonderful exchange with the "Stitched with Love Exchange".

I was spoiled rotten by Lisa with the most wonderful thoughtful package.

Everything was wrapped so pretty in heart tissue paper. One of the packages had my most favorite needles attached. My last trip to the shop I was going to buy a new package for my upcoming stitching camp and they were all out. How perfect this new package is.

First I opened these wonderful new magazines. I love to sip tea and just look through them. A perfect afternoon I say.

In my exchange questionaire I said I liked anything with teacher or air force because of my two kids. Lisa was so kind as to add these lovely charts and a wonderful bookmark.

Also incuded in the box was all this wonderful new stash. Some wonderful threads, ribbon, fat quarter, linen, post its and pen. Yes can you see a pair of cute scissors and a beaded fob. Always my favoite and a pair I didn't all ready have, imagine that. In the mesh bag was some wonderful chocolates, they tasted just like a chocolate covered cherry with out the mess. Sorry those were gone a long time ago.

My wonderful stitching piece was this beautiful ornament. Sorry it won't go straight. It is just perfect in pink with hearts. It already has a special place on my bulletin board in my craft room. Thank you so much Lisa for all the wonderful goodies.

I sent my package to Edit in Spain.

I stitched this Love pillow. On her questionaire she stated she is trying to decorate for all the holidays and thought this would be a nice additions.

I also enclosed some spring colored threads, ribbon and a bag of spring buttons for her to use. She stated she like postcards so I enclosed some from So. California.  She mentioned she stitched on Aida and I had several colored pieces I was not going to use. I also sent her and told her it was not part of the exchange but wanted it to go to a new home a bag full of Aida cloth.

It was another wonderful exchange hosted by Lainey. Thank you Lainey, I look forward to the next one.

Always keep love in your stitches,

As for the aida fabrics, I cannot thank you enough, and I can assure you that I will find very good use for them :) In fact, I have already started to use them :)
