a little post with no clever name

Cow test successful! I'm trying to post for the second time this week...a few days earlier dear old Blogger would not let me upload any pictures.  If I'd known it would work today I would have started with something more interesting...


Things have been crazy busy with school and the approaching holidays, but I do have a few things to show. Not much as my stitching time has been almost nonexistent.  The first of my many exchanges has been completed--This is what I sent Elisa for the Rotating Designer (Prairie Schooler this round) exchange.  This a portion of Pumpkin Patch, with the colors changed up a little bit.  My DD begged to be allowed to keep this one!  Fortunately my partner likes it too.

This lovely creation is what I received from Teresa.  I love stitching bags so needless to say I was thrilled!  The designs are from the PS chart Boo to You.

This little guy, along with the rickrack from the Victorian Motto Sampler Shop, was sent to Berit for being the first to guess that the WIP in my last post was in fact The Talking Board from Primitive Needle.  He is from BBD's Casting a Spell booklet.  

Speaking of which, my WIP is a WIP no longer. Pardon the wrinkles, it has not met with an iron quite yet.  I have a somewhat different idea for finishing (borrowed from another blogger, not a stitcher) so look for pictures of this one in fully finished form sometime before Halloween. 

Til next time, thank you all for visiting!

Ooh! A great post!

I love the exchange pieces, and you have reminded me that I need to try to track down a copy of Pumpkin Patch!

What a awesome bag you got, too--I know you are enjoying your treasure!

Speaking of, my little pin pillow is proudly displayed and that gorgeous ric-rac is inspiring some finishing--maybe soon!

Can't wait to see what Talking Board will become. :D

Wow, I love all of them! Exchanges look like such fun! (I think Blogger is having major problems. I had major trouble with it Monday. Ugh.)
