Embroidery Monday Link Party, OPAMS, Season Exchange Package

Oh my - LOTS to tell you today. You might want to get a cuppa and put your feet up....

First - the Vintage Embroidery Monday and Stitchery Link Party hosted by Super Mom - No Cape!.

Here are three pieces just finished last week (hmmmm....guess these are OPAMs, too).

Needlepoint Fox and Hound Box Pillow 10x12 inches

Needlepoint Mini Bell Pull 12.5 x 3.75 inches

Needlepoint Flat Door Handle Ornie 8.5 x 5.5 inches

I participated in a wonderful Seasons Exchange hosted by Kimberly from Creative Chaos. We were paired with someone and we were to share what our favorite season was - My swap partner was Tracy from Mad About Bags.  We both love autumn. Truthfully, she put me to shame with all the goodies she sent me.

An Autumn Banner that's on our screened in porch - and guarded by little Emma from ginormous Bella:

A treasure trove of goodies - crocheted leaves, Autumn themed soap, yummy body lotion, a thimble (it's already in with my thimble collection), beautiful Autumn cards, a sweet scissor fob and a porcelain box with a sweet cross stitch design - filled with buttons (I LOVE buttons!).

An Assisi cross stitch pattern (which I've always wanted to stitch) with threads and Aida:

And last but not least - COOKIES!  CHOCOLATE COOKIES!! Well, at least I can show you the box....the cookies met their demise in short order - HA!

THANK YOU, Tracy - for being such a wonderful and generous Seasons Swap Partner. And a big THANK YOU to Kimberly for hosting the exchange.

Now - off to stitch!!
