MORE SNOW!!!

This is what I woke up to yesterday.....more snow......we got another 8 inches. Yikes, this winter just won't end.

Catherine of Bramblewood Stitches and I decided to do a Spring/Easter exchange and we opened our gifts yesterday. This is what things looked like before I started ripping paper. And here are the beautiful gifts she sent me. She sent a beautiful stitched piece and all these goodies. Here's a close up of what she stitched for me. I love it!
This is what I stitched for her. I sent along some goodies also that she said she liked.



This was my first exchange and I'm so glad I did it with Catherine since she was the first person to leave a comment on my blog when I started it.

Gosh, all that snow!! Almost like an April's Fool's joke, don't you think? Hopefully it will melt fast.

Wonderful exchange gifts both given and received. I really like the gifts you gave to each other.

Beautiful pieces both sent and received!!!!

I can't believe you are having more snow!!! Then again, someone did say never put away your winter clothes before Mother's Day~

8 inches of snow certainly does not sound like spring!

I know you folks up there think snow is pretty and all, but I bet it doesn't look so pretty in April. What a bummer !

Your exchanges are really wonderful - both stitched pieces are great!

Karen said...

Love both of these designs!! Great finishing on both exchanges.

So sorry to hear about the snow. We had a heatwave the last couple of days. Back to cool and windy today. Wonderful exchange with Catherine! Both pieces are so pretty!

Your snow picture looks really pretty.

Silkweaver changed their name? Guess it's been a while since I ordered, too!

Sorry about the Michaels; that's terrible! I've never used them...but I need to find a framer as mine is back in Ok!

Sheesh! Even if winter won't quit Spring still came to you in a box from your friend. Love it.

Catherine said...

No more snow! Thanks again for all the wonderful goodies. I absolutely love my spring cube!! I hope to post an update later this evening. Hugs!

What a lovely exchange! The stitching, both given and received, is lovely!

I'm so sorry you are still getting snow--winter won't leave us alone here either, but at least the snow seems to have gone (for now!).

Pumpkin said...

What a perfect exchange then! Lots of goodies :o) Your piece is very well done.

Ack! I hope that snow is gone by now...
