Today in the mail arrived a SFE (Small Finish Exchange) from Vickie. What a SFE is, you sign up with a theme you would like to have stitched for you. The others that sign up, also have a theme. Each person is assigned to a month where they will receive their SFEs. Each person then stitches a small finish with the theme, and then they have to finish it into something small. Hence, SFE.
My theme is Quaker, and I received my first SFE today! Of course my month isnt till November (November 20 - day after my bday.. hehe). Vickie stitched this adorable quaker theme, and attached it to a wooden box. One night while we were chatting, she asked me if I liked the color green. And I said, yes. She painted the box, and attached her design to the box. She said I can finish it off how I would like. Im going to take her suggestion of finishing it off as a needle case. :)
Thanks Vickie for doing this for me. I love it!!
