I told you in my last entry that I had some pictures to show you and it turned out that I had even more pictures to show than I thought I had earlier today. Let’s start with the HOE Mattress Pincushion Exchange. My partner for this exchange was Carol B. from USA. I decided after going through her blog to stitch her a pattern by Prairie Schooler. It is Autumn and I made a Mattress Pincushion out of it. Carol liked it and I loved making it for her. I did snatch the pictures that she posted on the HOE blog as I completely forgot to take pictures of it before I sent it out, hope Carol doesn’t mind.

And I received my HOE Mattress Pincushion Exchange from April last week. April made me this lovely Mattress Pincushion and enclosed some extras for me. I just love my exchange, thank you April.
Last week I received a birthday gift from Lorrie. Lorrie sent me a beautiful scissor fob made of beads, a pattern for a bookmark and two skeins of variegated DMC thread. Thank you very much Lorrie for this lovely gift.

I belonged to a Birthday Thread group over at Jayne’s Attic BB. I got many lovely cards and threads from the girls in the group. I forgot to take a picture earlier to show you. I got cards from Sheila, Jane, Pamela, Tracy and Dusty and just look at the lovely threads that the girls sent to me. Thank you ladies.
Beautifully coloured Birthday Floss.
Well, that’s it for tonight. I will be heading to bed and I wish you a good week. Hope things will go well for you all. Good night and don’t let the bed bugs bite. LOL 🙂
