Happy 4th of July

I hope all my U.S. readers have a safe and festive celebration!

MAILART EXCHANGE
A few weeks ago, I sent off my Patriotic mailart to Shelley in CA.  While I was on vacation, hers to me arrived in my mailbox.

Shelley did a great job.  Thank you, Shelley!

ROUND ROBIN FINISH
I brought home my SM Sue's round robin.  It's a design called A Sampler Story by Brenda Keyes.  I chose to stitch the mermaid.  It was a quick stitch, and the chart is perfect for a RR.
