Many Things To Share

It's time for another update. I have many things to share.

A present arrived from Holland. Mylene sent me a mattress pincushion. Look how beautiful the pincushion is, her stitching and finishing are perfect. It's a PS design. Thank you, Mylene, for granting my wish.

Natasha had received my HoE LHN/CCN Exchange. I stitched for her a LHN design from the "Something Old and Something New" series. The stitched piece was mounted on a fabric box. I am currently taking cartonage lessons from a Japanese teacher. Here are some pictures of the box.

Here is another of my fabric box. The design is a freebie from Carol R. I am now addicted to making fabric boxes. Box finishes is the new technique to showcase my cross stitch.

Next on the show is my hardanger doily. I joined a Hardanger SAL on a French Board. The SAL was organised and designed by Ticoeur. The design is so beautiful and I really enjoyed stitching this doily. I stitched it on 32ct Sand Belfast using white DMC perle 8 and 12. Thank you, Ticoeur, for organised this SAL.

I received my Valentine Exchange from Ellen Sharp. She stitched for me a lovely pin pillow. It's a HIH design and beautifully stitched. I love it. Ellen also sent me some goodies. Thank you, Ellen, for a lovely exchange.

An update on my OakHaven Group's SAL. I had finished stitching February, it was quick and fun.

I did not take a picture of my Eiffel Quaker as promised. Hopefully, you will have a view of it together with my other Quaker updates in my next post.

Thank you, friends, for visiting my blog. I love and appreciate all your comments.

Happy stitching and take care till the next update,

You've been very busy with some awesome stitching. And finishing. Your boxes look so great, your finished them in a perfect way, they are actually little treasures. Great job.
I also love the mattress pincushion you've received from Mylene. She's also a great stitcher and finisher. Enjoy!
