Plant Love Finish!

Here is the Lizzie Kate Round 5 exchange piece I stitched for my partner Michele.
I love this design, its soo colourful, quick, easy and fun to stitch.  My finish was a pinkeep.

I have a while now before my next exchange committment, so I started stitching on the Lizzie Kate Green Flip It series.  It's not worth me putting up a photo just yet as it's only just started.  I think its's going to be another fun stitch though.  I also just finished up a RAK I want to send to someone to help cheer them up a little at this time, it's for a fellow stitcher but I don't want to spoil it, so I will release who it's for when they receive it.

Until next time, happy stitching.

More Arrivals!

Some of my exchanges have arrived at their new homes.
First up here is the ornie I stitched for Conny in our private ornie swap group.
Conny listed Carriage House as one of her favourite designers, so I thought this little Angel from the Alphablocks was the perfect pick for her.  I tried out a new style of ornie finish for this one to. 

And next up is the piece I sent to Lynn in the Seasonal Exchange Group (link in my sidebar).
This design is a portion of the Shepherds Bush chart "Scatter Sunshine".  I attached fabric around the sides, like you would if you were making a pillow and then made it into a wallhanging.  I was super pleased with how this one turned out and Lynn loves it too.

Until next time, happy stitching

A Sigh of Relief!

Well I havent been told personally but I noticed on the sidebar that my partners name had "received" next to it, so I'm guessing it arrived safely.  Here is the piece I made for my partner in the HOE ABC exchange.

Designer - A Mon Ami Pierre
Design - Hornbook's stitcher
Stitched on 28ct antique white evenweave using DMC

I changed it around a little by moving the letters to fit the shape I wanted, I also highlighted the recipients initials in a different colour so they would stand out and added a small charm.  I finished it as a pinkeep.

Next post I can show what I received in the SWAP with Nina group, its gorgeous!
Until next time, happy stitching

I'm Still Here!

Yes I'm still plodding along, but I just havent had anything that I can show you all.
I have my HOE ABC piece out there posted mid June that has still not arrived at its home (and usually when I post to this country the longest is 2 weeks), so I fear it is MIA.
I also have my SWAP piece on its way to Hungary so hopefully that one should be arriving soon.
So until these pieces arrive I dont have much to show I'm afraid.  The stitching I have recently finished are all for exchanges or gifts aswell.
I have an exchange break now till mid September so I have to work out what ME stitching I can do next.  I have some ideas but I just have to make my mind up.
Well thats all for now dear friends, hopefully I can blog about some pieces received soon.
Until next time, happy stitching
