I have been shirking my blog duties .... mainly because I've been playing around on Facebook lately.  I participated in a Summer exchange which finished up a couple weeks ago. 

From wonderful Sylvia, I received this pile of goodies.  I love the crab biscornu she made for me.  The colors are so bright and cheerful.  And the pattern she included, Joyful Summer, is perfect.  It just oozes summer and makes me smile.  I love it!

Thank you Silvia!

For my part, when I think of summer, I think sunshine and flowers.  And so for my partner, Christina, I stitched Summer Rainbow from Country Garden Stitchery.  It was a fun stitch .... bright, cheerful colors, lots of fun swirls and a rainbow, what more could you ask.

This was a fun exchange which seemed to do it's job because summer has finally arrived in Pennsylvania.
