♥Thank you June ♥

The Royal Mail brought me a wonderful package from June. It came couple of weeks ago or so and I'm really sorry I'm posting so late. To make a long story short - my life stopped for a while, thankfully I'm almost back to normal... here are the goodies from June
 Thank you so much dear June, I love absolutely everything!

So long my friends,

My Wish List

     My wish list can be seen on my blog page and you can also see it over at if you use my email address.  Address is

Posting A Label

     Good morning everyone! It's chilly and rainy here in eastern NC this morning, but it's a beautiful day anyway.  I'm looking forward to stitching a good part of the day on my "Quaker Diamonds" piece.  I love working on it and love all the colors.
     I was wondering how to post under labels.  Is this something that Evalina does for us or is it something I can do myself?

     Ya'll have a wonderful week and don't forget, "If you love color you can feel it".   Here are some little hands that can literally feel them!

Until next time, stay warm, safe and well.

     Nearly forgot! I sent out my very first RAK today and I'm excited for the recipient! Check your email everyone!

I'm back and I have received a wonderful RAK.

Hello Everyone, I'm Deborah and I have rejoined the site after several months away, I didn't expect to be gone for so long but I am happy to be back.

A few days ago I received a wonderful surprise in the mail from Jacquie M. my first ever RAK, I can tell you I was so thrilled to open the package and find spring stitchery items inside.

This first photo shows everything that was packed into my box
The Friendship Grows box is just lovely and tucked inside were some tasty chocolates and you can guess I did munch one while I was snapping photos.
cross stitch box
The Easter Wishes Egg makes me wish that someday my stitching will be half as good. I'll and the egg to my Easter Centerpiece basket.
Also in the box were these lovely pastel buttons, I have loved and collected buttons since I was a child and these will work out nicely for a project I have on my drawing board.
The tin dove was tucked into the Friendship Grows box and is now hanging from the arm of my reading lamp.
The handcrafted giving Bunny is so adorable and I was planning to make a few of them myself to send off to friends and leave a few anonymously here and there. Here is the link for the Giving Bunny project 

The teapot and the floral frame pattern are so me, and the little sketchbook with the window frame just waiting for a small cross stitch piece will come in handy.
patterns and candy
There are strips of ribbon, a scented candle and a copy of Cross Stitch Crazy magazine pieces of pink and yellow aida cloth, ribbons and embroidery floss all which will be used in future projects.

Thank you Jacquie for the lovely RAK it certainly brightened my day.

Hello Everyone!

     I'm finally officially a member of RAK and I'm very excited about it.  I love putting little gifts together and sending them out to brighten someone's day.  I'm LindaLee from Cross'N My Stitches, and have been blogging for about three years. Love meeting people and making friends.  Here's a picture of me and my dear hubby, Bill.

     I love to cross stitch and I actually do nearly any kind of needlework.  My mother taught me to knit when I was five.  I'll never forget looking at the little swatch I was working on and seeing holes here and there in it.  I'd drop a stitch and my mom would put it back on the needle.  Good memories.

     Bill and I live in eastern North Carolina.  Both transplants from New Hampshire and we do love the warmer climate here.  There will always be things that we miss from back home though.

     I have a surprise gift ready to go, but do not have the receiver's address.  Are the member's address posted somewhere here on RAK? Any help would be appreciated.
     Stop by my blog sometime for a visit and see what I might be working on at the time.  I love meeting people.  My wish list is posted there also. 

     Color? If you love it you can feel it!

I have finally posted it!

(Borrowed from Google Images)

Hello stitchy friends,..

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for being patient with me ... I hear you all say "What for??" Well I have been a member of the group for a little while now and only just managed to get my RAK out!  

I really did enjoy putting the RAK together but I have to tell you it did cause me some stress wondering who to send it to.  In the end after taking a little advice form a fellow stitcher I put names in a hat and my husband pulled the ticket out with the person's name!  So it was totally done at random!  

I noticed that some of you have wish lists... I have now joined in on this!  I was worried about doing a wish list but then thought its only somewhere to put everything I like and love and hope to buy one day to stitch!  Some of your wish lists are amazing and I wish I was a lottery winner so I could buy you each something.  :)

So the main reason for this post was really to say I have done it and its gone and apparently it will or should arrive at its destination hopefully soon!!  This is the very first RAK I have sent out so naturally I am anxious... hopefully the next one I send out will be less stressful!

I love to give and hope that the person I have sent it to likes it...

Happy stitching everyone :)

Hello from Aurora, Colorado!  My name is Michele Stravato and I am new to the group.  I tried to post a couple of days ago without much luck, so hopefully this one will work.

I am married with two teen-age, soccer playing boys, so yes, I am busy.  Luckily my husband does all the cooking and grocery shopping. He also works from home, which helps with the boys crazy schedules.  Besides soccer, the boys are also  participating in their high school robotics program. The district competition is April 3-5 and assuming they do not make it to the national competition, our lives will slow down slightly after April 5.

I first learned cross stitching in high school and try and find time every day for at least a little stitching.  I love to  read trashy paranormal romance stories on my Nook and I was into vampires looooooooong before they became trendy or sparkled.

My hair is strawberry blonde, my favorite color is purple and I am very excited to join this group!

Fairies anyone?

 The below booklet is one that I would love to pass along to another stitcher.  It  has the three charts shown in the picture. I have already stitched the one I bought the booklet for and would much rather send it to someone who would like it than for it to sit in a drawer.  If you are interested please leave a comment and if there is more than one I will use the random number generator to choose. I am more than happy to send anywhere!
