Pals private exchange.....

SB "Tudor Needleroll" design
stitched on 32 ct Belfast w/recommended DMC and a beads.

Yes...there is some stitching going on! At the Pals Fall Fling last October, my housemates and I decided to do a stitched exchange. Laurie (no blog) was my partner and I stitched the pin pillow for her. She indicated she liked pastels and smalls and I thought this would be the perfect. I love the way it turned out and hope Laurie will enjoy it too.

I have been stitching on a few other exchanges and hope to share some pics soon! Happy stitching....
