Sweet RAK

Look what showed up in my mailbox Monday...

A gorgeous gift from the talented and oh-so-generous Harmien! These beautiful stitching accessories have helped pull me out of my stitching slump......I immediately "dressed" my scissors and floss! Thank you so very much dear friend. It's like I have you sitting and stitching with me when I look upon these sweet treasures :)


Laurie and I did a small personal exchange. She asked for a pair of knitted socks. And since her favorite color is purple, they just had to be that of course ;) I was worried about them fitting properly (because handknit socks lack the elasticity of store-bought.) But she assures me that they fit perfectly, whew!


Don't forget to leave a comment on Monday's post if you'd like to be entered in the blogiversary giveaway :) Happy stitching!
