Greetings Everyone. Here in Northern California we've been having nice and cool weather in the last few days. Even a bit chilly in the evenings and I love it:)
Over 1 week ago I was contacted by one of our stitching sister's, Lisa - The Inspired Stitcher Blog.
She had seen I added "Bee Happy" by Homespun Elegance to my stash and she had just purchased it too. Lisa suggested for her and I to stitch "Bee Happy" together at the same time. I was so excited and thrilled. Of course I said "YES" right away. So we had our own small SAL.
It was FUN to get to stitch it together and a quick design to stitch. Lisa and I have both finished and I am sure she will be posting soon on her blog, her finish, very soon (I think she was waiting for me).

Oh yes I have a long ways to go one. This design is HUGE. Over 65,000 stitches when done. But at least I've picked it up again and am working on it. It does feel good to pull out and work on another old wip.
To Angele - from meFor EMS Exchange "Christmas in July", the person I got to send a package to, has been finally received. I mailed off this package on June 14th. It's destination - Switzerland. Long story short (right!!!) The package was in the USA for over 1 month. It took 1 month to travel from California to New York, then back to California -Richmond. At this time I thought for sure it was coming back to me. Because Richmond is here in the Bay Area. NOPE! It went on to LA -California which was LAX yes the airport on July 21st. I was notified on July 26th that sweet Angele's had indeed received it in Switzerland. So now I get to share with you. Angele was very happy what I sent to her.
I had shared what I received in a earlier post, from the same exchange, from Bianca in Germany back in June. Hope you are stitching and enjoying August so far.
With my Love and Appreciation - Annette
