Exchanges Received

Just a quick note to show pics of some exchanges that arrived to their destination. The first 2 pics are for the HOE - LHN/CCN Exchange. My exchange partner was Susan P. in Baltimore, MD. I stitched 4 designs from the LHN Dear Diary series over one. I must say I probably won't be stitching over one for a little while. My eyes were not happy with me! I finished it into a cube using instructions from a With My Needle design. It was really easy to assembly. I had a hard time parting with this piece!!


This next piece was for the Holiday Exchange group; Easter theme. I was partnered up with Cindy in Singapore. I stitched the Easter sampler from Lizzie Kate. This piece was really fun to stitch. I tried my hand at "rouching" for the first time and I'm sure I'll be doing that again. I really like the effect of the rouched ribbon.


I've been stitching some on my Mrs. Waddelow's Huswif from With my Needle. I really like the design. I hope to post some pics in a couple of days. I've also been busy getting ready to start Judy Odell's Mary Wigham's Wardrobe. It's a private class she's giving on the JAT forum.
Not much else going on so Until next time, Happy Stitching!
