2 In 1 Day!

Lucky me! Elisa had my name in two exchanges and here is what she made for me.
First up for the Lizzie Kate round 5 she stitched part of the Liberty Sampler and made it into a pinkeep for me. 

Secondly here is a lovely pillow she stitched for me in the Seasonal Exchange group (link in my sidebar if you would like to visit us, we are open to new members).  This one is a SanMan Original design which was a freebie and its stitched using DMC threads, she also attached all these beads around the outside to the ricrac.  Too cute!

I have also finished my Lizzie Kate round 5 piece for my partner and just have to make it up in its finish.  Then I will start stitching on my seasonal exchange piece.  Elisa was super quick for both these exchanges.
Until next time, happy stitching

I received my HOE ABC piece from Malinda.
Malinda stitched an online freebie from a french website, using HDF's "Perfect Red" to stitch the design. Isn't it devine!! And what a fabulous flatfold she made it into, flatfolds are one of my favourite finishes.
Many Thanks Malinda.

I have recently finished an ornie for Conny in our Private Ornie Group, today I have to find the perfect fabric to go with it.  And last night I started stitching on the LK Round 5 piece.  August and September are big months in stitching for me.  3 exchanges and a birthday I have to stitch for, so I am going to be busy for a little while.

Until next time, happy stitching.

A Few Things To Share

I have been busy lately stitching a little something for myself inbetween my exchange stitching.
I recently bought some new stash and this was one of the charts I picked. 

Plum Street Samplers "Hare's Spring"
Stitched using DMC on cream 28ct Lugana

I plan on stitching the Hare's Summer to go with it aswell, but that one will have to wait till my next break in exchange stitching.

Speaking of exchanges here is a wonderful piece I received from Conny for the Lizzie Kate Exchange Round 4.  She especially chose the June stamp for me as it is my birthday month.  I love it, its soo colourful and cheery!!  Thanks Conny!

And next up here is the Little House Needleworks piece ABC123 I finished at the beginning of the year.  I wanted a special finish, so I sent it off to Vonna at The Twisted Stitchers Finishing Service and asked her to make it into a wallhanging for me.  This is the beauty that she put together for me.  WOW!!!

Thank you all for your continued visits and comments, I really appreciate them all.
I still have some charts up for grabs in the previous post so if anyone is interested please check them out.  Don't forget I am happy to trade.
Until next time, happy stitching.
