Pincushion Exchange

Well guys, to catch you up with events during my blogging absence, one of the things I did was take part in a summer pincusion exchange which was organised by Namu on the AngelSan Forum. I was given the name of my stitching partner, and told we had to post by around 20th June to reach destination by beginning of July. Problem was, I did not know what my partner liked/disliked in the way of stitching. I finally settled on a pattern, happily stitched it one Saturday at the beginning of June, and was quite pleased with it. Bad news struck when on Sunday I found a topic on the forum for stitchers likes/dislikes and my partner had put dislikes fantasy, dragons, magic etc, which is my absolute fave! Likes cute/cuddly, which I rarely stitch. I had decided to stitch a sun motif from Fantasy Cross Stitch by Julie Hasler, so had a huge panic that she wouldn't like it. DH calmed me down assuring me that it was fine, and that she would like it, so I sent it off to her at alloted time, put a few other bits in to soften the blow, and just hope that she really did like it.
I received my package quite early in the month of June, and it burned a hole in my fingers as I promised that I wouldn't open it until I had sent mine. When I opened it, it was a beautiful beach scene stitched by Margaret, together with a lovely Dimensions butterfly kit, and a letter. It wasn't until I got back from holiday, and caught up on blog's that I realised my exchange had come from Stitch or No Stitch, who's blog I visit. Dumb eh! But it was lovely to realise that it was "that" Margaret who had sent me the goodies. So ""Thank You"" Stitch or No Stitch.
