Here is another picture of my start, I love these colors. Will try to work on this project regularly and post updates. I am not a one-project person.
I participate in two HoE Exchanges that are due in June. Both exchanges, the PS Seasonal Exchange and the Snowman Round Exchange, had been mailed. For the PS Seasonal Exchange, I chose to stitch for my partner a design from The Gift of Stitching. This is Marie's favorite season - Fall.
Design: From February 2008 of TGOS
Fabric: 28ct Monaco
I finished this piece into a mini wallhanging. Marie had received this exchange and I am so glad that she like it.
I received a beautiful Snowman Ornament from Erin W for Snowman Round Exchange. She stitched for me a design by Cathy Jean from the 2009 JCS Ornament Issue. She personalised the ornament with our names on the back. I love this round ornament very much. Erin's stitching and finishing are perfect. Thank you, Erin, for a lovely exchange.
Patti had a giveaway on her blog in May. Look, what I won, a needlecase and matching fob kits. Patti was stitching Just Nan's Bluebird Alphabet then and I just love it. Patti is so gracious to include this design in my wining parcel. She had finished and framed Bluebird Alphabet, so hop over to her blog to see this pretty stitching. Thank you, Patti, for the lovely kits and Just Nan's chart.
Here is a close up picture of Bluebird Alphabet!
This next picture should be familiar to most stitchers. It is Tulip House Stitching Companion from BBD's A Stitcher's Journey.
I got the box from Myra. She painted it, isn't it beautiful? This project is on top of my "To Do List". I had stitched the Tulip Pincushion, just need to finish it. See my earlier post.
Thank you for all the lovely comments, they are greatly appreciated. I will leave you with pictures of a sumptuous High Tea at Regent Hotel. It was a Mother's Day treat for me!
Take care and Happy Stitching!
