Exchange, blog win and Fall Quilt

This past week has been busy, but was still able to get in some stitching and beading. I am still trying to figure out what I should be giving as Christmas presents!!! I am a bit behind on that front!!

Well one of the fun things that happened was an exchange that I was a part of with some long time internet friends. This is what I made and sent to Angela in England.
Of course, I forgot to photograph the little dish and the homemade acorns that I also sent along.
But this is the inside of the the needlebook.
And here is the front cover.Now will I ever get this Fall quilt done in time for fall??? Well, it is almost finished so we will enjoy it for part of the season.
This has been an easy quilt to put together and I only have 2 more borders to put on and then I will machine quilt it. It will probably be draped over a round table.
Now the neatest thing that happened to me is that I entered a blog contest (as I always do) and occasionally I do win, but I never in my wildest dreams think that I would win this absolutely adorable, darling doll.
Now isn't she the sweetest little thing you ever saw?? I just love her. She was made by Julia who lives in England. Thank you Julia for making such a sweet little doll.
Thank you all for stopping by, I hope you all are enjoying a nice Fall and that the weather has turned cooler, but is not cold just yet.

Friendship in Stitching ------------ Roberta

Your exchange piece for Angela is so beautiful. And a nice finishing. What a wonderful exchange this was.
Meanwhile you might have finished the fall quilt. And why not use it in the winter as well? Lol.
Congratulations on winning that lovely doll.
