I'm doing some secretive exchange stitching right now and will be eager to show you that soon.
I have also put some stitches into Home of a Needleworker and another thread pack, Watermelon. When I finish up my exchanges, I hope to get busy on my pay it forward gifts. I only had three people sign up for mine, but I have two more surprise gifts in mind for a couple of deserving ladies. I've selected what I want to do for each person and can't wait to dive in to those projects. I wish I could do something for every wonderful reader of this blog!
I also ordered some floss for the At Home with Jane Austen sampler from The Gift of Stitching magazine. Mary Kathryn has a lovely finish of this already.
On another note, I sent out some St. Patrick's Day cards to a few family members today, and found a lot of delightful Gaelic blessings and quotes online. My favorite Irish blessing ever is, "May you never lack a scone!" but I also like this one:
May you always have
Walls for the winds,
A roof for the rain,
Tea beside the fire,
Laughter to cheer you,
Those you love near you,
And all your heart might desire!
