Ready for camp!

I got my little spring small set completed this weekend so I am all ready for camp. The scissors are from the love and friendship exchange I participated in earlier this month. This was the first time I tried a finish with all that ruffled up ribbon. Let's just say I am not sure I have the patience for it! It slips and slides everywhere while you try to put the beads in to tack it in place. That silly little fob took me 2 nights to get the ribbon wrapped around. All's well that ends well....I won and it is in place. The book has a pocket inside where I put the matching tape measure for the scissors and the other side has a needle page. 
This is what I sent to Catherine it was fun to stitch for her and make a new needle work friend. I did wait until I got back from Utah and my SB trip hoping to find a little something extra to add for her. I received from Kaye
The exchanges are so much fun to plan to send. I had so much fun this time I actually forgot I was getting something in the mail until it came. How spacey is that? (not necessary to answer)
This weekend I was in finally finished mode and made up several pillows from stuff I had stitched int he past. I love the way these colors matched the fabric choice I had in my stash. Turned out really nice for a first attempt. I got three total finished. Good progress for a Susie crafting Saturday.

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. I am suffering with the rest of you ladies with blogger and posting comments. How long before they realize their upgrade was a downgrade?
