Is it really almost July?

I cannot believe it is almost July and I cannot believe I haven't posted since May 30th. Time has just gotten away from me.Now, on to the stitching world. Several weeks ago I participated in an embellishment exchange with my Yahoo group. This is what I got from Lizzy.

There are some great eyelets that I can use with my Crop-a-dile and some purple ribbon. Then there are these beautiful silver, lacy looking butterfly charms that I can't wait to put to use. Thanks again!
I am also participating in Rene's hardanger online class. Here is the fabric, threads and beads I chose:

The fabric is 28 count and is called Waterlilly. In case you can't see it, the color is this really pretty light green. The threads and beads are ecru. I can't wait to see how it all turns out!
Well hopefully in the next weeks I will work out my issues. In the meantime, keep stitching!

Looking forward to seeing your hardanger piece. I really wanted to take the class, but had another stitching obligation.

Good luck with your work situation. Do what your heart tells you.

Nice exchange!

I love all the supplies you received - especially the eyelets. Does the container of the eyelets tell you what company they came from? I would be interested in looking for them on the internet but can't quite make out the company's name.

Another nice exchange. I have a crop a dile, but have yet used it! LOL Even bought some pretty eyelets. Hope your work dilemma gets straightened out. Have fun with the class. I have thought about taking it, but don't know yet and it might be too late to get my supplies now!
