Exchanges to share

Wow, look at this gorgeous Winter Quaker that Margaret stitched for me. The pictures do not do it justice, it is simply stunning. Margaret's stitching and finishing are perfect. The chart is from The Gift of Stitching May 2007 Issue. Margaret used DMC pearlescent thread and it glistens in the light. Thank you, Margaret, for all the goodies. I will treasure this Quaker.

Tracy had received my parcel for the HoE Biscournu Exchange, so now I can show what I had stitched for her. This chart is a freebie by Maria. I used DMC 815 on 32ct Belfast linen.
More pictures at Tracy's blog.

I had this small finish to share. This is a freebie by Carole D and first stitched by Linda. I was attracted by the variations threads that Linda used for this pattern and had to stitch one for myself. Here it is, my blue love birds. I would probably finish this as a biscornu.

I went for patchwork class last week and finished this handmade little tray. It can be used for trinkets and sewing accessories.

Thank you for visiting. I appreciate all the lovely comments. Take care until the next update.
