SBEBB Spring House and Garden Exchange

Just look at what I received from Yuko, isn't it wonderful. Yuko stitched a Prairie Schooler designed, and finished it into a small mirror. I love it. Thank you so much.


And look at these wonderful goodies Yuko sent. I love the green fabrics, and trimmings. I really love the colours, and I'm going to make something special from these bits, and then there was chocolate-strawberry flavour-yum, yum. And tea, with a gorgeous little teaspoon, with a lilac crystal head, it's so pretty. I've not tried the tea yet, but will let you know what it's like.




I sent my exchange piece to Edgar, as you can see I made another pin keep, I think this is becoming my favourite finish. I think Edgar liked it too.



I had hoped to meet up with Sally on Friday, but once again events took over, and I never got there. Please wish us luck for the next time.

I seem to have lost my way in life at the moment, soon I hope to be back on track. I'll leave you with this - on Friday I was 49, on Saturday I was 40yrs, and today I'm 31years old. At this rate, I'll be reborn next weekend. Can anyone guess why? (Sally, shhhh)
