Another great exchange!

Isn't this a fantastic warm winter exchange. I received the snowman ornament, lovely piece of linen, 3 snowbelles charts, snowflake fabric, snowflake buttons, craft glue and some cute pokadot notecards. I loved it all!
The picture above is what I mailed to Melanie. The stitched piece was from a recent JCS issue and it is a Home Spun elegance chart. I stitched it in blue for myself. 
There has not been a huge amount of stitching time this week. I took a few days off to help my mom paint at the new lake house. We sold the smaller cabin and bought a larger place with more room for family and friends. It had been sorely neglected and needs a good bit of TLC. Hopefully we can finish up the remodel before summer so we can all enjoy our summer on the water. I was only able to stitch one night this week. The funky flowers piece is moving along and should be a nice addition to our bedroom at the lake. I knew I wanted to put it there from the first moment I looked at it. 

This morning when I woke up I could write my name on several surfaces in the house.Time to break down and clean. I will be good and get on it in the morning before I start stitching. Or at least that is my intention... Hope you all have a great weekend and manage to make a few X's.

Thanks for stopping by,
