Lizzie Kate Exchange Round C

Well it seems that Jill (who sent to me) and I both had the same idea when it came to this round of the Lizzie Kate Exchange.  We both chose one of the Word Flip-it's, just different words.

Here is what I received from Jill - her word of choice "Create".

And here is what I sent to my partner Melissa - my word of choice "Care".

Until next time, happy stitching.

Blackbird Design Exchange

Michelle organised a Blackbird Design Exchange over at her blog.  There were 7 people taking part and my partner to send to was Kate.
Here is what I stitched and finished for Kate.

"Summer Iris" stitched on 32ct antique white linen using DMC.
Finished as a pinkeep.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my previous posts.
Lisa asked a question regarding the pillow I made for Lainey (as she loves watermelons).  It is a Prairie Schooler design from the booklet "A Prairie Year".
Until next time, happy stitching

From Cath

As promised here are the pictures of the lovely exchange I received from Cath.
Cath took my love of hedgehogs and stitched The Workbasket's "Quaker Hedgehog" for me, finished as a little arch shaped scissor pocket.  The scissor fob design, she took the centre from the hedgehog body and made it into a full motif.  How fantastic!!
She also included some amazing goodies for me, fabric, floss, notebook, a gorgeous Tudor pin badge and a chart from my wishlist.
I just love it all, and I'm soo pleased to have completed this exchange with you Cath.  Thanks again!

Until next time, happy stitching.

Private Exchange with Cath

Myself and Cath over at The Stitchin Chicken have completed a private exchange together.  When I put a call out on my blog at the beginning of the year for anyone who was interested in doing an exchange with me, Cath let me know that she was interested but couldn't start until later in the year as she was currently finishing up with another private exchange.  We both set a date of around June 20 and had an open theme.

I stitched Cath a CCN design "Cherry Hill" and made it into a pinkeep.  Apparently this is Cath's first pinkeep.  I also included an array of different goodies including a lovely reindeer christmas ornie that I found.  Here are pics of what I sent:

Today I received my lovely parcel from Cath, so I will take some photos in the morning light and post them for you to see tomorrow.
Until next time, happy stitching
