Goodies to and fro....

There is nothing better than goodies from a
crafty friend.   After some email conversations
regarding pins and beads, Patricia shared
these cuties she made for Valentine's Day....

Aren't these cute??? 

I am "stealing" this idea so that I can
attach them to my Christmas gift tags.  
If I add a little tag with the year, my family
and friends will have a small token
for next year's tree.

To my surprise, Patricia also included this little gem....

Yes...that's a realy acorn cap!

I wish I had taken the pic with a quarter
so you can tell how small it really is.   She
made it too and all I can say is it is darling!

She also sent some chocolate but it
didn't make it to the photo....
I can attest it was good!

I have been most fortunate to become good 
friends with Faye, aka "Carolina Stitcher",
over the past few years.  

Faye is truly as sweet in person as you probably
believe her to be from her blog.  I wanted to
stitch a little something for her birthday
and one of Carol's new designs was just perfect!

iStitch Designs "Sew Forth"
stitched on 36ct Lakeside Linen
w/ Victorian Motto

I loved this design as soon as I saw it on Carol's
design blog, iStitch DesignsAlthough the
design called from beautiful pastel shades, I
knew it had to be red.   I am very happy with
the results and hope Faye likes it too. 

This one will be stitched again soon with
the called for fibers...too pretty!

Thanks to this wonderful blogging
world, I have had the opportunity to meet
such wonderful stitchers.   Although I may
never meet some of you in person, it is
comforting knowing I have so many
wonderful "stitchy" friends in this world.

As always....thanks for visiting.
