A finish and an exchange!

Wow! It's been a month since I last blogged. What a busy month. We went on vacation for 2 weeks. Will post pictures of that soon. After we returned I have been buried under work and we had company over the 4th of July weekend. A busy, but fun time.

First off...I did an exchange with my friend Sharon! We agreed a while back to do a monochromatic exchange. I stitched a freebie chart for Sharon from The Workbasket. I forgot to take a picture, but if you go to her blog you will see what I sent.

Here is what Sharon sent me! It is a beautiful piece stitched in such a lovely hot pink. Love it! She finished it as a pinkeep/scissor pocket. Isn't it lovely? Plus, she sent me some Carrie's Threads and DMC, a oaur if scissors, a thread keeper, plus 2 charts from my wish list. YAY! I really enjoyed doing this exchange with Sharon. My first ever exchange. Thanks so much Sharon!

This last picture is a very recent finish from Shepherd's Bush. I messed up a little on his hat, but it turned out fine. It was a fun stitch. There are several others in this series I like.

Will post vacation pictures and more movie thoughts soon. It's been a good summer for the movies!
Don't forget the Stash Sale!
