The Kindness of Others

Here are two charts I received from other stitcher's. Last Fall I commented on Corinna's blog about her beautiful finish of "Simply Live". I had wanted that chart for a while. She said that she was done with it and happy to pass it on to me! I was so thrilled! I still need to get the threads for it and will as soon as I finish up a few things I have started.

The "Bits of Blue" chart is one that I traded for. Angela has a hearty wish list of charts and luckily I had one she wanted so I was able to trade with her. I have seen it on a couple of blogs, stitched with the ever popular DMC 115. I am extremely excited to get started on this project! I think I have some Lambswool linen I can use for it and I found the most beautiful red material for the finishing!

Here we have a super awesome package I received from Becky on Saturday! I loved her Valentine box and of course she got it at Hobby Lobby. I am not lucky enough to have one here so she was very kind and picked up a box for me, as well as some DMC 115 and some very pretty Valentine ribbon! What a sweetie she is and I am lucky to have her for a friend =)

I also won these nice tatting shuttles in a drawing on Fox's blog and received them over the weekend. I'm quite excited about these and can't wait to try them out!

Now it's my turn to give back and I am planning to have several drawings over the coming months. There will be a variety of crafty things for cross stitch, tatting, beading, crochet, and knitting. Hopefully a little something for everyone. All the details will be in my next post some come back and post a comment for it to enter my first of several give-aways!
Have a great day!
