I just couldn't think of any other word to get my blog going again after such a long hiatus!  I'm happy to say that I'm alive and stitching and hopefully I wouldn't be away for such a long time again!  Well, what can I say, the demands of life really took over for the past months and have been taking a toll on little old me.  I haven't had a lot of spare time to do much stitching but I try to participate in an exchange or two and do some other stitching since I haven't been blogging.  I have a few pieces I want to share with you all over the next couple of days.  So here goes!

So, how was everyone's Christmas and New year holiday?  I hope the holidays were good for everyone and I do wish everyone a healthy and prosperous 2011 and most of all I wish you lots of finished stitching projects.  By the way, I wish myself the same thing, too lol.  Oh, how I wish I can have lots of finished projects done  this year but I shall see how things will go.

During the month of August 2010, I took part in the HoE For the Birds exchange where I received from Nic my partner from England. She stitched me a design from Brenda Keyes, a British designer. She used DMC threads, one over one and finished it into a pillow.  Isn't it cute!  Nic's stitching is so lovely. She also included some goodies which will surely be used.  Thank you, Nic!

and the goodies!

And this is what I sent to my partner Nicole in the US.  I stitched a pattern from one of my favourite designers, the Prairie Schooler.  I chose  "From the Heart" from their Designer SeriesI loved stitching this pattern for Nicole and from all reports she liked it as well.

Designer: The Prairie Schooler
Design: "From the Heart"

Well, that's it for now.  Will continue later, not too much later, I hope.  So bye until then!
