Good mail day

I received my Fair and Square Exchange today from Peg. Thanks Peg it's lovely! I was so excited when i received a comment on my last post from Diane Williams of Little House Needleworks!! Diane if you happen to read my blog again, i love your designs and thank-you so much for leaving a comment, it made my day!!

Today i received this....Yes, i know it's last years edition but in the past ive always just used internet freebies for Christmas ornaments. I was never sure where i could buy single issues of this magazine over here but recently Andrea gave me this link to a place that sells them in the UK. Yeah! There's quite a few designs in here i will be stitching for Christmas!
Next week i have to go away to a conference for 3 days. I really hate going away for work. Im going with my boss and was hoping to travel seperately but no, we are going together. A 4 hour car journey. Im dreading it already. It's just far too much boss-time for my liking. Not only that but it's 3 days of small talk and it's not like your working day finishes at 5pm as there are social things we have to attend in the evenings. Im going to hate it, i know because i had to go last year as well :( The one positive of the whole experience is that the hotel we are going to looks amazing!!

You have my sympathys on the work trip. Just did one myself with 2hrs in the car boss time and that was enough for me! And I like my boss! Good luck and hope it isn't as painful as you're thinking it will be.

What a great exchange piece. I always love the JCS ornament issues and I have them all since 1997.

Last years issue was great and you'll get lots of stitching out of it. What a wonderful square to receive for your fair and square exchange.

That's a lovely square! The boss trip sounds like it will be awful. Maybe you can at least stitch in the car on the way there?

Love the square you received in the exchange! It reminds me of some of the JBW designs.
I've managed to collect all the previous ornament issues and am anxiously awaiting the release of this year's issue!

I've managed to collect all of them but it sure was a chore to find the old issues!
