Autumn Exchange and the SBQ

I received my cadeaux from Ana for the Autumn Exchange hosted by the SBEBB. And so:


Beautifully wrapped in gold paper, I received a lovely pillow, with the words “C’est l’automne”; a beautiful needlebook with far too many to count lazy daisy’s (I really dislike these – Ana does such a nicer job than i!), some overdyed floss and some beautiful lace.

Close ups:


I love it. Everything got put in its place right away. Thanks so much, Ana!!!

Today’s Stitching Blogger’s Question is suggested by Dianne.

If you have stitched for a while, can you usually pick out the DMC colors you need from memory when you go to your LNS? (For example, you know that 610 is a brown.)

For some colours, yes. I know 310 is black and 500-504 are greens (thanks, TW!). As for the rest… I can guess but I probably would be wrong!

I leave you with a picture of the weirdest cat I have ever seen. He repeatedly just flops down and sleeps in the weirdest positions. I give you Spike:

    Ana’s cadeaux are gorgeous! Wow!

    I loved those photos of Spike. Violette does not sit quite like he does on the first picture ;o) but is often like Spike on the 2nd picture! Do you think they have a Ragdoll ancester?
    Spike is so gorgeous!

    We often find our cat (a tom) in very similar, weird positions 🙂 They’re so funny!

    Love your exchange pieces, just lovely!
