Beautiful exchanges...

This is the first time I've done an exchange with the SBEBB group and tho I cannot show you a pic of what I sent (one, because the receiver hasn't received it yet and two, because the pic I took was crazy blurry....my bad) but I can show you the lovely scissor fob I received from Carol....


The stitching is incredible...so perfect and so tiny. Thank you, Carol.
Next is a great Halloween pinkeep exchange with my Yahoo Group. This one from Dawn. The fabric is sooooo cool...love it. Check out the little froggie she included.



I messed up my pic of the pinkeep I sent. I'm so bummed. Cathy, the recipient, took a much better pic on her blog, so hop on over and see what is really looks like.



I've been promising you pics of the 7 hour stitch marathon I went to a few weeks ago. So much fun...so much stuff to buy...so many freebies...and a great lunch. No wonder there is a waiting list. It was blast.


Can you believe the stash of books and patterns that were on sale???? 1/2 price!!!!!


Okay....I know Halloween is over, but I just had to include a couple pics of the crazy people I live with. My son was a gangster and Sweetie Man insisted on sitting outside to greet the 12 halloweeners we had that visited us. This was the first time in many years that we had a city-wide trick or treat night (mostly it was done by neighborhoods) which is the reason for the low turn out. My DIL is the one who did his makeup....I insisted he remove it before going to bed tho...UGH!






So with that, I want to give a big salute and thank you to all our Veteran's today, (especially my Sweetie Man) both living and those in heaven....thank you for protecting our country...you are all awesome! Till next time, yinz crazy guys....

Nice stitches. The ladies did well. That marathon looks like a blast. We don't have those here. Sigh. Cool costumes. But your Sweetie Man really freaks me out. If I rang the door bell, I would of given the candy back and ran like the dickens. lol.

Those exchange pieces are so nice. I'm especially fond of the scissor fob. Your DIL did a great job on Sweetie Man's Halloween makeup!

Wonderful exchanges, given and received. Your Boo pinkeep turned out adorable, who was the designer?

Looks like lots of fun was had at the stitchathon, I love getting together with other stitchers like that. Fun outfits for Halloween too, I'll bet the makeup was a mess to get off though.
