Fair & Square Finishing Frenzy

I’ve been in a finishing frenzy the last couple of days. On Friday I received my gorgeous squares from Renee K, which led me to take out all the other squares that are rolled up in the drawer. Well, wasn’t there an uproar! They all complained very loudly about being neglected. So I decided to get them out of the drawer and finish them.

This is the finished pinkeep from Renee’s squares:

This is the finishing result of my last 4 Exchanges: left to right: Rnd 14 from Renee K; Rnd 6 from Christy; Rnd 13 from April K; Rnd 12 from Sharon V. My heartfelt gratitude to all my exchange partners for giving me such pleasure and joy. Those scrumptious colours just make my heart melt 🙂

Thanks to Jill and Vonna who’ve kept the  Fair & Square Friendship Exchange well organise and a pleasure to be in. Wish I could join more groups, but  right now I can only commit to 2.

 See how the newly made pinkeeps  have proudly taken their place with other items in my basket of smalls.

 And now I must hasten away! I’m preparing for an important anniversary 😉

May your stitching  bring joy into  your life
