Heart Swap

Here's what I received from Karen for the heart swap we were in at a Yahoo group....
Karen's embroidery is gorgeous, I think it is the best example of embroidery I've ever received.  All the other lovely things she sent me were the extras we include in our swaps - two cross-stitch charts, silk thread, wool thread, gorgeous lace and some Maple Candie.  What an enjoyable swap this was - thanks Karen.

Not much blogging going on here again.  My front bedroom has been stripped out in preparation for my new wardrobes to be fitted.  This means that everything that was in there is in the rest of the house, there isn't one room that is tidy.  By tomorrow we won't be able to use our bed either, so one of us will be sleeping in the little bedroom and one of us on the fold up bed that will be downstairs.  This should be for about a week and I just know it's going to drive me crazy!!!

Hi Ann, Karen's embroidery is beautiful...and all the additional swap items...what fun you'll have with them when your home is organized again. I've always disliked boxes full of stuff and things not being where they're meant to be. (Which is interesting because my second bedroom looks like chaos...but then I can close the door and not have to look at it *smile*). Hang on, hopefully the week will pass quickly!

Your heart swap looks beautiful, I am sure the items you sent were received with delight as well.

I hope you're beginning to get things settled into your wardrobes now. I know all too well how miserable it feels to be surrounded by disarray. It can wear on you until you simply MUST do something about it!
