Ackworth Friendship Squares...and more!

I stitched my last Ackworth Friendship square today. YAY!!! I am so glad to be done with another project. I must say I liked having a designated day to work on a particular project. I may have to continue that.

Here is square #12.

We each stitched our own front and back square. Here are mine.

I had to stitch 2 squares for each of the other 5 girls. We each picked out our own color of fiber. The following pictures are squares for Lori, Chris, Jackie, Joan and Cathy.

Yesterday, my husband took me to the Stitching store, which was a nice treat. Some of my purchases I can't share as they are for a gift. Here is what I got for myself.

Yes, I got another scissors. What is it with us stitchers that we just can't have enough scissors? After all, we only use one at a time--for the most part. I have admired this one on other blogs for quite some time. It is the Tutor Rose scissors from Kelmscott.

I heard today that Moni received my Friend Through Threads Fall exchange.

This is "Pumpkin Etui" by It is stitched on 32ct. Belfast Raw linen with dmc as charted except outside border, it is Silk n'colors autumn bouquet.

Here is the entire exchange.

That's all I have for now. Thanks for visiting and have a great week.

Oh you sent such a nice exchange, Jill. I really love that pumpkin etui and the very nice finishing too!

All of your squares look wonderful!

Stash. Ah, lovely stash. I'm stash deprived right now. I think I will end up making some purchases online because I can't stand it any more!
