Spring swap goodies & some cross stitch

I got my Spring Swap in the mail yesterday (keep an eye out for what I sent to my partner). Terri from dixie samplar designs had me. She sent some wonderful things!

First part was a pretty Easter card, some pretty purple cards, and a lilac candle that smells pretty.

The second part held a pretty magnetic pad of paper, some more pretty cards, a pen, an eye mask, some cute easter tissues, and one of the cutest handmade scissor fobs!

And if all that wasn't enough in the third package there was a cross stitch magazine, two Easter Lizzie Kate patterns (that are both too cute), some pretty sparkly threads, needles, ribbon (that you can't see because I wasn't thinking when I took the picture but it has flowers on it), and of course chocolate & caramel coffee werthers!

I want to thank Terri in sending me such a wonderful swap package!!!! You are a sweetheart!

Now I have managed to do a bit of stitching over the last week. Here is my update on 'Autumn in NY'. My goal is to try and get it done before Wednesday! We are having the biggest sale on framing at work so now is the best time for me to get something framed and i'd really like to get this one done. Hopefully I can do it!

Alright i'm off to watch a movie and stitch for a bit today. Happy Stitching!

Meet our new family member!

This is Rex. We got him Wednesday from the local Human Shelter. He is 3 1/2 years old and he is Bulldog & Doxie.

I know I haven't been a great blogger recently. But i'm going to try to start blogging again more often. I hope you all are having a great day!
