Exciting Things To See!






Aren't these perfect!! I absolutely LOVE the little figure with her lavender rose, the bunny and blue bird. It's just the perfect picture I was hoping for my quilt in the Fair and Square!! Monique is my partner. She did a fabulous stitching piece, I think, and I'm so thrilled with it. I hope she likes hers as much. The little quilt will eventually go to my granddaugher, Hadley.
This is the little mermaid I'm nearly finished with for Monique in the Fair & Square exchange. She wanted something that represented Florida, and I couldn't bear a garrish old fish or flamingo! I still have to finish the final bird and add one more detail, then off she goes!! PS: The fabric behind these two is my great room window treatment fabric which my DH has yet to hang for me!! My next door neighbor and friend, Libby, says we'll do it ourselves when she gets home from her vacation in a couple of weeks!

Finally, here is the Rose Cottage I'm stitching for our Neighborhood RR. This is Wendy's piece. She stitched the original house to the left, Carissa stitched the house below, and I'm stitching the pinkish rose cottage with beehive. It will have cabbage roses and other little thingies once I'm finished with it. So, stay tuned....
I'm loving staying abreast of your blogs, too, dear friends! Thank you for taking the time to comment on mine. I hope you're finding my notes on yours. I just love seeing all you're stitching, and I'm in awe of what you're accomplishing! It's also fun to hear how your lives are going, too.


I'm just rolling along. Spent most of this week stitching and catching up with neglected laundry. My friend with lung cancer, her name is Elaine, started her chemo today. She's anxious and her other best friend and I try to keep her spirits up as we are her only support. She is doing fine so far.

I'm grateful for eyes to stitch!

Hi Deb, my what lovely things you have been stitching! I absolutely adore your addition to Wendy's RR. Simply perfect. Your Fair Square for Monique is lovely too, and hers for you are darling!~Did Monique design them herself?

I will keep your friend in my thoughts, Deb. Hope you're feeling better yourself, my friend! [[[[hugs]]]]

Best wishes to your friend Elaine with her chemo. Gruelling. We've had some family members go through that .... Big hugs to all.

Love, love, LOVE that NRR you're working on! WOW you have great ideas! And that mermaid...!!

I blush to admit that I have not been to the post office, but tomorrow I *must* mail an overdue RR and will do my best to remember your chart. ;)

WooHooo! I get a mermaid, I get a mermaid... I love her, Deb. Can't wait to see her person! I'm so glad you liked your square from me; I really tried to personalize it a bit for you :)

Sounds like your DH and mine do things at about the same speed LOL

Monique's square for you is just so... you, it's beautiful!!! And your mermaid looks lovely!! Wendy's RR is already looking so wonderful! Love the beehive!

Wendy said...

Your F&S exchanges look wonderful! Great job on both sides :-D

And I LOVE the Rose Cottage you are stitching on the RR, Deb!!! The vines and bee skep look so sweet. I almost feel like I am cheating to sneak a peek at it before its finished....

Best wishes to your dear friend!
