A basket full of goodies

Nothing I can show you yet on the stitching front as it's all for others and I must not spoil the surprise. So instead here's the basket of goodies from my coffee table. It is amazing the comments it produces from guests. "Where did they come from?" and when I start off "Iceland, Ballarat, Oregon, Connecticut... I usually get stopped by the exclamation "How do you know these people?" So thank you to all of you who have become friends in the world of exchanges. I have had an amazingly interesting year so far with still more pleasures to come.
I'm currently working on a return exchange for Crazy Exchange group, a mattress pincushion for Hooked On Exchanging and two PIFs. Having previously been a one at a time person it is taking some will power to have so many projects on the go at once but it is more pleasurable than stressful which is good :-)

Have a good weekend. I have Embroiderer's Guild tomorrow so am looking forward to that.
