Where Does The Time Go?

I can't believe that has been 3 weeks since my last post. Things have been crazy busy around here. I did the patriot exchange and should have posted a while ago. Nataly received my name and did she spoil me. Nataly is a friend of mine. We are in the same stitching group on Wednesday's and I was thrilled to receive something she stitched. The biscornu is stunning. The back is just a pretty as the front. She knew that I did not have one because my eye sight isn't good enough to do the finishing. Besides the fabric and the trims, the star, the pattern, a beautiful red candle holder that she uses as an ort container and buttons, she made me some of her great counting pins. The are done in red white and blue and they were mounted on a felt star. Awesome! I can't thank you enough, my friend. This is what I sent to Lynda. She said that she enjoyed the package. I know that I had a great time putting it together. I will be back in a couple of days to show the stitching and the trifting that I have done lately. Until next time ..... Happy Stitching! Deborah

Both packages are just perfect. And it's so nice to receive something that you can't make for yourself.

Lovely gifts sent and received. I know what you mean about time. I only just turned around and we are well through half a year of 2012. But I have big plans for finishing many things before this year is over. :-) Hope it is not too hot where you are and you can enjoy your summer?
