This week's theme: exchanges! I've participated in quite a few and received some beautiful gifts, which I must show off to you.
She also sent me some lovely Madeira silk floss and a cute keychain. Thank you so much, Denise! My favorite part is the little footprints. So cute!
What I stitched for Denise
This was my first time doing Assisi stitching, and I'm quite pleased with the result. I dated it with the Hijra calendar since we are both currently in Saudi Arabia.
I just adore the finishing on this ornament! Plus Shelley knows that I like squirrels. I think I may have let out a little squeak when I opened it. :D
What I stitched for Viv
I think this one needed a lighter fabric, but I still like it.
You have no idea how thrilled I was to receive this! I love these patterns! The fact that they were a surprise made it that much better!
I sent charts to Kate, but there's no picture since I ordered them online.
The little white specks in the pattern are actually tiny hearts. This is such a lovely ornament! And it's the first time I've received a Valentine's Day card in German. :)
What I stitched for Judith
Part of the exchange was to include tea, soap, or chocolate in the package. This is the tea that DH got me for our anniversary- it's delicious!
She stitched it with soluble canvas, and it looks great, so there's another thing I'll have to try!
What I stitched for Shelley
...will be revealed once she receives it!
Five exchanges in three months? That's a record for me!
I've been so spoiled over the last few months- thank you, ladies, for brightening many days for me!
