Fair & Square, Stitching Bloggers Birthday Exchange & an HD

Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments on my holiday photos! It encourages me to get out and shoot more!
I've received a few things in the mail lately that I'd like to share with you!

While on holiday round 11 of Fair and Square arrived from Beth H., it wasn't until late last week I had time to pick up my mail and I just haven't had the time since then to share them with you. They are lovely and will look great in my friendship quilt!


Today I got another parcel in the mail, this time it was from Anna! She sent me this wonderful Stitching Blogger's Birthday Exchange parcel full of goodies! She stitched me a gorgeous pinkeep and ornament! She also included variegated floss (which I love!), scissors, and was very thoughtful to include some Weight Watchers chocolates for me. Thank you so much Anna you sure made my day!!!

On the weekend I started one of what was supposed to be two ornaments for March... I'm obviously not going to have time for that second one this month, I'll have to do three in April! Its an online freebie off of a blog, I think someone else may have stitched it and linked to it.

Tonight I weigh in... I hope that pound I put on last week is gone! A little bit more would be nice.
