For some reason I have been unable to comment on posts despite being a member of the blog so thought I would make a post instead.

I'm a little worried about my Valentine's Exchange piece as it has now been 2 weeks since I mailed it.

Also I would like to join in the Buttons & Thimbles exchange, although don't have a chart as yet, I love the theme though!

Think that's it, also looking forward to seeing what everyone has stitched for the Valentines Exchange.


The theme for this exchange is buttons n thimble. You must have a thimble and buttons somewhere in the exchange, on your design or included in the package. No extras unless it is buttons or thimbles. The usual rules apply for the exchange, an item must be stitched and finished (I thought a pocket or pouch would be a great finish but I leave that up to everyone’s creativity, as long as it is finished).

For the Buttons n Thimble Pocket exch...sign up by 31st January, 2011. Partners will be emailed to you by Feb 2nd, 2011 and stitched piece to be mailed out by 1st March 2011.

Leave a comment on this post if you wish to join this exchange and then email me with your full name, mailing address, email. My email is on the sidebar.

Have fun with this one, I am sure everyone has lots of buttons laying around.


(hope I didn't forget anything, this is my first time doing this)

Valentines Exchange mailed

Took it to the post office this afternoon, not sure how long it will get take to get to it's destination, my last one took longer than expected.

Thank you Elisa

You beat me to it as I was just about to put a photo up. I've had a bug for the last half of the week and vistors at the weekend so this is the first opportunity to get on the computer.

It is a gorgeous pillow and I am so lucky to have received it. Mine will be on its way this week as soon as I can get out to the post office.

Love and hugs,

Sue xx

Haven't been able to post pics recently but have found I can use Flikr now so here is the piece I received and the piece I sent. Both photos are clickable.

Here is the piece I received from Lucy. She also included some little pressies including an Tiny Treasure kit, a snowman ornament and a bag of choccies for Joey. Thanks Lucy they were all gorgeous!

Here is the ornament I sent to Vivian of a reindeer in the moonlight, the moon has a sparkly thread for it that doesn't show up in the picture.


Thankyou for a lovely exchange ladies.
