Here is everything I sent -- the pillow, a little notepad that says "This is the Life," a skein of WDW Santorini, a pair of Hobby Lobby scissors, and a beaded fob I made myself. You can't see the fob too clearly here, but it is all "sea" colored beads with another shell in the middle, and a little dolphin curled around a blue bead at the end. I really like the way it turned out, and I hope Chris liked everything!

By the Sea exchange for Chris H.
Chris posted on the HOE blog that my "By the Sea" exchange arrived, so now I can share here! This is an Erica Michaels/Rainbow Gallery freebie, from the 2004 Stitchers' Surprise series. It is the June "Sand Castles" design, modified a bit. I stitched the border and words with WDW Father's Day, filled in the waves with DMC metallic, and stitched the castles with WDW Sand. The sun is The Dye Is Cast's Calendula, and the fabric I used was Palliser Bay by Country Stitch. Oh, and I added a shell in place of the beach ball button in the pattern.....
