Friends Seasonal Exchange....

I received a wonderful package from Kim B today for the Friends Stitching Through the Seasons summer exchange....

Sampler Girl's "Molly Pitcher 1778"

This is my first Sampler Girl design and I just love it. Kim could not have picked a better design for me and I love how she finished it. Better yet...take a look at the back.....

OMG....I am so stealing this idea from Kim.

And last but not least....

She also sent some great goodies! I just love Americana and will definitely put it all to good use.

I also heard from Michele that she received my package.....

SB "Summer" on 28ct coffee-dyed evenweave

I don't know why I was so "challenged" on the finishing on this one, but it definitely looked like I had help from my 1-year old nephew! Michele liked it (she's so nice!) so I am glad.

No new stitching to show since it is all for exchanges, but I am excited about a RR I am stitching with
Amy, Faye, and Nicole. We are each stitching squares from PS "Friends" and "More Friends". I love the designs and can't wait to get going.

P.S. .........
I have to send out a big shout to my Clemson Tigers, who beat #1 seed Arizona State today in the CWS! Go Tigers and good luck tomorrow against Oklahoma!

  5. Clemson can win everything but football games against FSU!

    Both designs are gorgeous. I certainly don't see what you're saying about your finishing. It's gorgeous and looks professionally done.
