Give is Finished!

Like I promised yesterday, I started and finished Give today! I'm now all caught up with this series. I know the next two charts just became available this weekend. I'll be anxiously awaiting them in my mailbox!


Give
c2007 Lizzie*Kate
Double Flip #71
Stitched on 32ct Lambswool linen using GAST & WDW


When I picked up the mail on Saturday I had a lovely surprise waiting for me! In round 4 of Fair & Square my partner crapped out on me. She never sent my squares, I honestly hate it when people sign up for things then don't follow through, don't send an explination, nothing. If there's any doubt that you're not going to complete and exchange or RR please don't sign up. Anyhow I didn't ask for anything, or demand a replacement but Vonna, the sweetie she is arranged to have Marie stitch me up replacement squares. I really appreciate the effort that went into these squares, they're beautiful and Marie included some beautiful extras. Thank you! On the Fair & Square note I finally stared the squares for Round 5!

Your LK project is looking great! Good for you!

The exchange problem you mention is why I'm kind of "sitting out" on exchanges this year. In addition to people who just flake out an send nothing, there are also people who put zero effort into what the do pop out in the mail, and others who never react when they receive something. Blah! No fun!

Marie stitched a really lovely replacement for you!

Karin said...

I love the new Lizzie Kate - and it's stitching up so quickly.

I don't like people who don't complete their end of exchanges either - it's not fair.

Stitcher said...

Great progress on Lizzie Kate, I look forward to seeing the next two.

Love your Fair and Squares from Marie too.

Claire said...

Loving the LK project - I decided not to get them this year - but I love the look of these and so am quite tempted!

Such a shame with your RR (had similar experience) but it goes to show that there are plenty more kind hearted people out there who appreciate how you feel and help you out. How sweet.

Hugs
Claire

The LK project is looking wonderful!

It's terrible that your partner backed out on you, but isn't it wonderful that Vonna and Marie made it right? I've found that most of the stitching community is so generous with their time!

Katie said...

Wow, the new LK is looking awesome!! I love the pattern, I just have yet to take the plunge and buy it.

Oh what a sweetie to replace the squares. I think the fear of someone crapping out is why I still haven't taken the big RR plunge yet....one of these years ;)

Stephanie said...

That's really kind of Marie and Vonna to make sure no one gets disappointed - although it is a complete &*%^$& that your original partner didn't follow through :(

Hey your Double Flip It's banner is going great! I have the first four and am on an automatic for the rest (gee, who gave me that idea!?!) but haven't yet started stitching them - too busy with exchanges, I really must slow down a bit with those!

Your PL is coming along nicely by the way - I'm allowed to be ahead of you, I started last March don't forget! Some of the SAL stitchers are overtaking me, and they've only been going since November!!

Nicola said...

It's really annoying when people fail to carry out their committment or get in touch if a problem occurs. Your replacement squares are lovely. The L*K is looking great too.

Vonna said...

Hurray! I love your Double Flip its and your just burning through them!
Glad that Marie could bring a smile to your face :)
She does the most gorgeous work and she is a kind and generous friend!

Wendy said...

I love the squares that Marie stitched ~ how wonderfully kind of her to fill in for you. And huge bummer about the person who didn't fulfill their end of the commitment. But people like Vonna and Marie certainly make up for it.

Great LK work - this is a great series.

Erin said...

The Lizzie*Kate piece looks wonderful....ooo, it is making my clicky-finger twitch! LOL

I'm glad Vonna and Marie got a square to you for the exchange. Our RR is having a similar problem with a vanished stitcher...it is so frustrating.

Sally said...

Love your L*K's so far. They look fantastic!

Missy Ann said...

I ordered the LK Double Flips this morning. I just couldn't resist any longer. Of course I'll blame/thank you for it.

Heidi said...

Great finish! Congrats! I'm sorry your partner crapped out on you for the F&S Exchange. How sweet Marie was to stitch you up some replacement squares, they look great! Also you've been tagged!

Beatrice said...

What a lovely thing for you that Marie sent you a very pretty F&S replacement.
I Love your Lizzie Kate.

Jaimie said...

I love that Lizzie Kate! That was a very sweet thing for Marie to do.

Teejay said...

Your flip its are so charming! The exchange piece is lovely.

Lynn said...

Too bad that people can't stay with their commitments. Marie has given you a lovely replacement though!
Love the flip its! From the looks of it they are a very quick stitch.

Dawn said...

The L*K's are looking wonderful!

Sharon said...

Congrats on your finish! Your squares are lovely!

Carol said...

Your flip its look fantastic... oh, I am weakening and think I will be getting this one after all :-)

Ranae said...

LK looks fabulous, and pretty squares too.

Carla said...

looks so pretty! great progress Dani!

Kajsa said...

Your Lk is progessing nicely! How nice to get of them to arrange a replacement for you. I have it when people are not fulfilling their committments too but what can you do about it?

Louanne said...

LK is looking great!!!! I can't beleieve that I got the first two charts and the fabric and floss, and I got it all ready to start about 3 weeks ago. Now I can't find it!!! I filed it somewhere, and now it's gone missing! I'm ripping my hair out! So I will live through you till I find it!!! LOL!

Michelle said...

So glad that you got your Fair & Squares from your new partner. I've just ecperienced someone keeping my RR and it is such a crappy thing to do when people don't hold up their obligations they THEY signed up for!
