Bent Creek Piece for Angela

As mentioned in my previous post, Angela and I did a Bent Creek exchange as this year's private exchange theme.

Here is what I made for her.

Stitched on 32ct Belfast Millenium Blue
Made into a hanging pocket perfect size for cards.

I am pleased to say that Angela loved them.
Angela also received the birthday gifts I sent her aswell, but I was going to leave that until the next post.
So until next time, happy stitching

No. 1 Ornie Swap & Bent Creek Exchange

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and happily stitching away.
September is my month to receive in the Ornament Swap group.  I'm soo excited, I cant wait to see what I will be receiving from my dear stitching friends.
This is my first ornie to arrive and its stitched by my dearest friend Angela.

What a cutie!

I am also in a private exchange with Angela at the moment, we do one every year and the theme for this one was any Bent Creek design.  Well I also received mine in the same parcel, lucky me!!
Here is the gorgeous piece that Angela stitched for me.

Angela's piece from me is still making its way to her along with her birthday goodies, so I will have to wait till she receives that before I can show you here.
Thanks Angela for another enjoyable exchange.
Until next time, happy stitching

Summer Exchange

Another wonderful exchange with the Stitched With Love Exchanges.  This time was the Summer Exchange.
I stitched for Barb and this is what I sent to her.

Stitched on 27ct Linda Evenweave using DMC
Extras Sent

And here is what I received from my partner Heather.

Sorry my posts have been so few and far between.  I am currently job hunting for a new job and it has taken up all my spare time.  I have still been checking out all your blogs and leaving comments though.  I have really been waiting on this exchange to get the go ahead to post about as everything else I have been stitching or working on are for birthday gifts and I cant show them until the end of the month.
Until next time, happy stitching
