An Exchange to post

I received word that my "personal L*K exchange" recipient received her pillow, so now I can post the photo! For Heather I stitched "It's A Girl Thing". After she & I planned for this exchange, I read her blog and found out that she was interested in this pattern - so I thought I would stitch it for her. I stitched this using the color and floss called for on 28ct even weave - 1 over 1. And then finished it as a pillow. On the back, I decided I would add our names and year as a remembrance of this one-on-one exchange. I had so much fun stitching this. L*K is such a fun, easy, quick stitch. And the colors were so nice and vivid! It was also nice to do a "girl thing" :) My house is just full of boys :)
Oh, yah...if you click on Heather's name to visit her blog you can read about her travels to Texas where she actually met the designer of Lizzie Kate (Linda). How cool is that!

I have been stitching off and on the last couple of day - trying to finish some of the Quaker motifs for my two sisters wedding anniversaries coming up in August and a model for CindyMae. This weekend, DH and I have been playing tag team - as we drop off and pick up the boys at their respective ice hockey events. Robert (olderson) is going through tryouts again, this time for a AA team - we will know this afternoon if he makes this one. Matthew (younger son) has a hockey clinic all weekend, in preparation for his tryouts which is next weekend. By Aug. 2, we will be done with tryouts, both boys will be on a team and we will have some idea how hockey will play a part in our lifes this season.

So, with that...I will bid you good day and thank you for stopping by and reading. I hope that your weekend brings you and your family much happiness, laughter and love! And you find time to sit and stitch!

Yes, I know I'm finally trying to catch up on blog entries. We are all too tired tonight after working a lot this weekend on DD's project so we stopped early tonight. :-)
