Drawn Thread from Cathy!

I have not been a very healthy bunny of late. My boy was unwell all last week with conjunctivitis and I have now got it. So I have sore, bloodshot eyes and feel like someone has punched me in the eye and nose and generally feel rubbish. So when this beautiful exchange arrived yesterday you can imagine how much of a "pick me up" it was. Cathy had recently organised a Drawn Thread exchange and she happened to be my partner. I was stunned by the awesome finishing on this piece and amazed by all the lovely goodies:

Drawn Thread exchange from Cathy B

She sent me two charts off my wishlist, two skeins of Crescent Colours, box of pins, chocolate and coffee and a lovely card as well. Cathy, you know me so well and Thank You from the bottom of my heart.

I am trying to do the rounds on the blogs and I always read my commentators' blogs first before anyone elses so I'll be popping your way shortly.

Happy stitching everyone. I am working on some pifs this week and also gathering supplies for the Birthday exchange. xx

Louis Vuitton goes,[url=http://v2.alledrin.de/blog.php?user=louis01vuitton&blogentry_id=1836442]louis01vuitton[/url]
their Epi leather is by far my favorite line. The leather is extremely sturdy and can withstand all sorts of wear and use. I have unfortunately spilled things on my Epi Leather wallet and all it takes is a quick swipe of a cloth to clean off the leather.
Louis Vuitton lovers worldwide will be beyond thrilled with the plethora of new Epi Leather colors. Most of the time we expect a couple new colors to be added, but Louis Vuitton has added a shade of every color of the rainbow (15 colors to be exact) [url=http://www.e-volontaires.org/louis01vuitton/note/57725/louis-vuitton-handbags-uk.html]louis-vuitton-handbags-uk[/url]
and then some for their Spring 2012 line.
As enormously popular as Louis Vuitton is with women (In case you doubted that popularity,[url=http://www.cbmedya.cagatayberker.com/blog.php?user=louis01vuitton&blogentry_id=3701]louis01vuitton[/url]
LVMH posted double-digit revenue increases in the most recent quarter.), the brand doesn’t have a reputation for being incredibly feminine. The color most commonly associated with the brand is the chocolate brown of the famous Vuitton monogram and damier fabrics, and most of its epi and vernis leather bags tend to be made in either brights or neutrals. The designs are classic and widely adored by women, but most of them don’t have any characteristics that make them particularly girlish, like Valentino’s flowers or Gucci’s flora prints.
We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but this morning, that’s exactly what [url=http://bushlawyer.co.nz/?q=node/56113]louis vuitton taschen[/url]
we have to be. This is the kind of news you want to know as soon as possible, though, so that you have enough time to adjust, make your plans and complete any purchases that you were contemplating. Yep, we’re talking about a Louis Vuitton price increase. After the jump, we have all the info and a few suggestions of what [url=http://www.myballroomlife.com/node/68319]louis vuitton handtaschen[/url]
you should scoop up before everything gets more expensive.
