My Friend Gifts

Thank you for all the encouraging words on my lack of sleep. I normally don't have problems sleeping but once or twice a year I go thru these spurts where I get insomnia. I did manage to get a little bit more sleep last night.

Last night I watched the weather and they said no rain today. So, why is it raining (AGAIN!)? At some point the kids would like to actually be able to go outside on their vacation not to mention so would I!

Rain, rain,
Go Away
come again
another day!

I did work on something yesterday but I can't show it as it is for XXXX for the freebie exchange. For a freebie theme I have had the worst time picking out one to stitch! I have all the cross stitching done I am just working on the backstitching. If all goes well I should be able to do the finishing tonight.

When I first signed up to do exchanges my main reason was to be able to get to know other stitchers. I have found this a little problematic on the exchanges that are secret. It's not like I can ask that person what is their favorite color, etc. Don't get me wrong I have made some wonderful friends thru exchanges! I love participating in them and plan to keep on participating in them. My point of this rambling is I would like to get to know my fellow stitchers better and to say thank you for being a friend.

Here is my plan. I will stitch 5 different gifts for 5 different people. You will know it is from me because I just might ask have to ask what your favorite color is or something like that! If you would like to be one of the receivers leave me a comment. If there are more than 5 people interested I will draw names. This is open to everyone even if I have stitched for you before!

It's raining here today, too. :( I know we need it as we've been having quite the drought, but I just wish it would get done while we're sleeping. :P

An exchange sounds fun! But, I'm not quite skilled enough to hold up my end of the bargain yet. You've given me a great idea for something to do in the future, though!

Too bad it's raining-we were hit with some showers this morning-just glad that it's cooler now.
Thanks for the compliments on my blog about the exchange gift.

I would love to do an exchange with you. Maybe something like a small? A fob or pinkeep or ornament! What do you think?

Luckily, the rain stopped but the weather forecast for the coming days were not that good.

That's a great idea sbout the exchange/gift. Especially still a long way for our first exchange, glad though as i haven't decided yet.....

I would love to be on your exchange list. I have refrained from some of the exchanges because you have to stitch quite a few and I didnt want to have that pressure but a one to one would be great! xx

Glad you are feeling better, and are sleeping!!!

I'd love to do an exchange with you :) That is, if not too many have signed up. It'd be good to ask what you would like :)
