I know...I'm so bad at blogging...

I just have been having so many problems with posting lately. I am going to try again. I have had my laptop serviced and I think it will work better now. I should have a lot to show you but I haven't been stitching too much. A little...first my "abc exchange" for the Hooked on Exchanging blog. I really like how this finishing turned out. I sent this to Malinda. Check out her blog its great.
Then I stitched this crow pillow for the Holiday exchanges blog 4th of July exchange. I made up the design because I knew my partner liked really primitive stuff from reading her blog. I think it turned out pretty good for designing it myself. I made a flanged pillow and love fabrics. I think that I will have to use the left overs for something for me! I sent this to Tanya. She has a great blog too. Beautiful house pictures too. If you like primitives at all check it out.
I ;received some awesome exchanges in return. This wonderful 4th of July exchange from Marjorie.
It is just beautiful. I love this holiday. Then from Jayne I received another biscornu. It is only my second one but they are both from Jayne. She had my name for the Christmas exchange.I absolutely love it and your stitching  Jayne is so beautiful. I am using your picture for some reason mine will not post. I hope that you do not mind if you do please let me know and I will get them off immediately. Well.. I do have more to post but I am waiting for my camara to charge so I can take some pictures. I don't have any other news to share I am just kicking back and enjoying the will be over all to quickly up here in South Dakota. Hope you all are enjoying your hot summer too!


  1. I really love the pear sampler you sent to Malinda, I bet she was thrilled to bits with it. Are there more fruit samplers in the set? Gorgeous biscornu from Jayne. I'm debating whether or not to try making one myself, it looks so complicated but I'm sure after doing it a few times it will get easier!

  2. The pear sampler is just lovely, soo colourful. I have missed your posts Blyn, I always love to see your work.
