Next is the lovely Prairies Schooler exchange that arrived here from Sally this morning. She has sent me a really lovely pinkeep. I just love this design, which unfortunately I think must be discontinued as I've tried looking for it before. It is beautifully stitched over one, and is finished with a pocket on the back. Sally also included all these extras, the Halloween cards top left are made by Sally too.
Lastly, this is the PS exchange that I sent to Chris. There is a much better photo over on Chris's blog.

I've really enjoyed taking part in these, and a couple of other exchanges but now it's time to concentrate on my own stitching for a while. I have loads of kits and charts that I really need to stitch as there is a lot of money tied up in them all. I also want to enter a piece of cross stitch into our village show next September and have a kit in my stash for that. With all this in mind I have joined the Let's Stitch blog that Becky has set up for the purpose of encouraging stitchers to reduce their stash, and get those WIP's/UFO's finished. To start my stash reduction off I've kitted up LHN's Acorn Hill as my holiday stitch for the week after next when I'm up in the Yorkshire Dales for a week. It's a chart that I've had for nearly a year now and it's a nice easy, relaxing stitch for a holiday.
I do have some WIP photos to show you, but I'll leave that for another time as this post is long enough as it is.
Thanks so much for all your comments on my last post.
