LK Exchange for Conny....

LK "These are the Day"
stitched on 28ct evenweave w/DMC


Conny received my Lizzie Kate Exchange (in record time if I say so myself....traveling all the way to the Netherlands!) The first time I saw this design it made me think of family photos! I had the perfect fabric that I found on an excursion with Amy so I changed the thread colors to match and decided to make finish as a photo album. It was a fun finish if you overlook a few boo-boos! I do hope Conny enjoys it and fills it with memorable photos.

Thanks for visiting.....I just love your comments. Well....if you aren't melting, consider yourself lucky! Where's that snow from February????? I am so ready for winter. I think I will just forgo my fall stitching and dive straight into something wintery! Happy stitching.....
