Thank You KarenV!

My autumn exchange from the Stitching Bloggers Exchange arrived today from Karen V!















The design is a freebie from Blackbird Designs. Karen used NN Fall Foliage for the leaves on the tree and it looks just like the trees in my neighborhood this week! She finished it as a pillow using four different soft and beautiful fabrics with a fabric bow hanger. The buttons in the corners are wood and square - they couldn't be more perfect. I absolutely adore it! Karen also included a pretty skein of Terra Cotta Weeks Dye Works and a postcard from her city.

This is my first exchange and I'm thrilled. What fun! Thanks again Karen, I am delighted. I also would like to thank Melissa for moderating the exchange and a BIG thank-you to Becky for providing us with the SBE BB in the first place!

Before I go I want to say that I took over 150 pictures during the show last weekend and I do intend to share some of them here! I'm having an extra-busy week but I hope to post them soon. Right now I'm late to a family dinner - eek!
