Finally some stitchy pictures!

But unfortunately they aren't of my stitching but of some very nice exchanges I received this week :-)

My Halloween F&S came in the mail this Monday. My partner was Terry and this is what she stitched for me. Aren't they pretty? I've never seen this before and I love it...check out the little spider charm at the corner.

I also got another exchange on Monday, my HoE Prairie Schooler Exchange. Cathy B had my name and look at the pretty pin pillow she stitched for me...and the back...and look at all the goodies she sent me...I can't wait to stitch up that needle roll, I luv Shepherd's Bush!!! And now I have a picture that I've been meaning for the longest to share with you...I should honestly be ASHAMED that it has taken me so long to share this with you. During the summer I joined the Quaker Animal Exchange on the Quaker Inspired Blog, well Donna had my name and she stitched me Quaker Mouse and finished off into the most gorgeous quilted drawstring drawstring bag. Of course I'm never going to use it but do have it displayed in my stitchy corner. The pictures I have do the bag no justice but here it is... and here's the back... Donna I'm so sorry it's taken me so long to post a picture of this...I don't want you to think I'm ungrateful but life and my forgetfulness kept getting in the way of posting this!

Now I must go and update my exchange blogs. School is still great but stressful. All the time I thought I would have does not exist. I can't wait until I go on vacation in November so I can have at least a few days for myself, a day where I can just do nothing!!!!! Right now I go to school Mon-Thurs and then work Fri-Sun *ugh* I thought I would be able to do it (and so far I am) but jeez louise I'm tired!!

Hi Mercy,

I miss you! I love your exchanges. The Halloween one is adorable! Hope Nov. comes quickly for you so you can get that much needed break.
