A Hoppin' Little Swap!

It was my first time ever to participate in a little pillow swap with my online friends!
Kelley gave her time and brought us together so one day we could open our mailboxes and receive these little delightful hand made wool pillows!
Wool on Wool!   4 by 4 or so!
All hand stitched and stuffed and sent to Kelley!

My Bowl full of hearts in hands sent to Kelley returned as these.....

Bird on Branch~~~Kelley
Stars on Stars~~~ PatiJane
Dogwood Delight~~~Sharon
Heart in Hand~~Yours Truly
Bouncing Bunny~~~Betty
Lucky Pennies~~~Ginger ( there's a real penny stitched under the wool pennies for luck!)

Thank-you my sweet friends!
A hoppin' and swappin' little time we had!
I hear whisperings of another towards Fall!
My wool wheels are already turning!!
