Surgery is over and although still one armed and doped with pain killers I am back! There are a couple of things to report. The two recent exchanges on HOE have been received so I can show them.
The first was a Lizzie Kate Exchange which went to Joan. As it was winter in USA I sent a Spring themed gift. You can see her reaction here. I was quite pleased with how well this stitched up. Lizzie Kate designs are fun aren't they.
Second was a Valentines Exchange which went to Michelle in Texas. For Valentines it had to be a heart didn't it and this sampler heart needle case by Ilse Alther was a treat to stitch. I am pleased Michelle liked it. Michelle has better pictures on her blog so go visit.
And I also received a package from Sally with a cute Lizzi Kate pinkeep, notecards, chocolate, threads, tissues and a handmade card showing where she lives in Michigan. Thankyou very much Sally for a great package.
I am still unable to stitch and the frustration levels are building! The DVDs of James Bond are no substitute!! I have been doing a lot of reading and also dreaming of what I will stitch when the sling is off and the arm is free. Meanwhile I am checking up on your blogs my friends so keep up your inspiration!
