Exchanges Received and More Pink

Yesterday, I received a very special Halloween exchange from Mercy. Mercy stitched "Smell My Feet" by La-D-Da and is finished as a pinkeep. It is stitched on 35ct. WDW Havana linen with DMC floss. It is so cute! Mercy did a beautiful job finishing it too, it is just perfect.

Mercy also sent LOTS of goodies! A pair of scissors, a Halloween note pad, a bottle of hand gel, an emery board, a pack of Halloween ribbons, a Pumpkin water globe that not only lights up but changes colors, a magnetic Halloween Needle Minder, a Halloween thread palette and 2 fat quarters of Halloween fabrics. Whew!
Mercy was very generous and I absolutely love it all!

Thank you so much Mercy. What a wonderful exchange!

I also received my Round 9 squares from Brigitte. Brigitte couldn't have pick anything better to stitch for me.

She stitched a cardinal that is a Prairie Schooler design. It is beautiful and I can't wait to finish these up into something special.

Thank you so much Brigitte. I just love them!

I also completed another Pink Stitch. It is called "The Pink Needleswatch" by Dutch Treat Designs. It is stitched on a square of Anne Cloth. Of course I didn't follow their colors, I used a DMC Variations in the perle cotton with #899 PC, plus the green. I'm trying to just used what I have and not buy any more.

I think it turned out pretty cute. And, what a great thing to have. I, for one am always sticking needles in different places. So, here is a picture of what I have so far for my stitching pink.

Well, I'm going to go pull my next pink project and watch some football.

Have a great day!
