Exchange Piece and Gift Bags

Oh man.  It seems like the month of July just started - and here we are in AUGUST!!  SIGH.  I guess it's true - "Time flies when you're having fun" - HA!

I know my iStitch Exchange replacement piece was delivered Wednesday afternoon.  Here's a picture of "Strawberry Fields" and my finish.

I liked the first one, but I REALLY like the second one ;)

I finished 25 gift bags that will be filled with goodies for the guests at my daughter's baby shower this month.  It was a marathon, but I'm pleased with how they turned out.  I snapped this picture in my studio, you can't see all 25 bags but - trust me - they are all there (smile).

Now - on to the next project(s):

  • August Round Robin
  • HoE Christmas Ornament Exchange
  • HoE Biscornu
  • HoE Halloween Ornament
  • Grand Children's Christmas Stockings
  • Stitchy Gifts for Unsuspecting Stitching Buddies
  • Other stuff I want to do but haven't gotten to yet <GRIN>

Hmmmm - better get those needles threaded!!

Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~
