Stitching/Last chance Exchange/Birthday Give-away!


Apologies for the awful picture. I just need to stuff, sew and add some snowflake buttons and this will be finished. If anyone out there has any of the Homespun Elegance Delivering series for Sale or Trade can they please contact me.




Once again I was overwhelmed when I received this gorgeous stitched pin and summer goodies from naughty Teresa. As I wasn;t taking part in the Summer Exchange that I organised she being the angel that she is decided to send me a package so I wasn;t left out. Beautiful fabric, buttons and a sweet little sunshine tissue holder. In the previous package I received she had sent a packet of jelly beans and I told her how my DH just loves these. There quite difficult to find here and expensive he usually has a treat at Christmas and Birthdays. You do get fake ones but he won;t eat those. How happy was he when he saw this huge bag. I think he has them stashed in an armoured box...lol.


Today is the closing date to sign-up for the Fall into Halloween Exchange at Stitched with Love Exchanges. So far we have had 26 who want to come play. If your sitting on the fence, go on pop on over to the blog and join in the fun.

Don't forgot to also join in my Birthday Give-away. Thanks to everyone who has entered so far.
Hope everyone stays safe with the nasty Hurricane in the US. Until next time, hugs!

I love the two snowmen in the sleigh pattern!! So cute and whimsical! It will look great all finished up! Nice to get packages from people who are so lovely like Teresa. That was so kind of her to send you something. Your husband must be like a kid in the candy shop eating those jelly beans! My hubby has a sweet tooth too and eats a lot of sugar!

Hi there, just a new follower to your lovely blog - thank you for the links to freebie designs, I am loving the halloween one you did on the 7th August and fancy giving it a go - can I ask what fabric you sew yours on - thank you - right back off for a good ol nosy xx

Beautiful stitching, Lainey!! You are going great guns with everything, and it looks wonderful!

Edit said...

I like very much your snowmen finish :) This series is really a lot of fun, I do not have any pattern from it but I enjoy seeing the designs on other's blogs :)

Hope that the Fall&Halloween exchange will be a success, too. I really wanted to join this time, already had in mind a few designs to chose from, but sadly life had other plans and and I run out of time :( Maybe I will be more lucky next time. I haven't participated in an exchange for some time and would really like to give it a try again.

Hope you'll have a great weekend!
