Swap Love from Panda

Hey there, stitchy peeps!

Ok, so I recently mentioned that I am involved in a swap with my friend Amanda...Are you ready to see what she sent me??

Prepare yourselves for awesomeness!

Amanda signed her work:

(I kinda-sorta totally and completely forgot to sign mine. Whoopsies.)

Isn't this just amazing? Amanda created this work of art just for me! I feel so loved. :) :) And she spoiled me rotten, too, with tons of extras and goodies, including fabulous teas and tea treats, the most magnificent smelling soap on the planet, stitching supplies, notecards, and more. Much more! Believe me when I say she SPOILED me! :)

Well, that's it for now, my fellow stitchers. I've got more to share with ya, but it's gonna have to wait for another time. I have to get back to my stitching! But I really wanted to share with you the amazing piece of embroidered art that Amanda made for me. She's super talented!! I will be back soon...but until then...

Happy Stitching!

I've seen it on flickr, but it still deserves more compliments! Amanada's stitching is so fantastic! Can you little boys appreciate its awesomeness? Where do you have it on display in your house? I can't wait to see what you've stitched up for her!

Hokey smokes--you girls scare me with what you can do with a needle. ;o) And here I send anything and everything to my mom for the slightest sewing flying fingers for me.

Looks great, Amanda!! =)

Wow! That's fabulous work. I'm sure that it already has a special spot in your house where it can be shown off. Thanks for sharing pictures of your loot.
