Exchange from Sarah....


It's been a good mail week.....


I received my exchange from Sarah (no blog)  for the Seasonal Exchange and it is lovely.  It is a nice spring design stitched on a very pretty pink fabric.  Thanks Sarah for such a wonderful exchange.

A couple of weeks ago Lee shared this wonderful strawberry finish from Manka, who was nice enough to share it with me. 


It is her own design of Hungarian
 motifs and her finishing is perfect.  I hope
to stitch this a few more times and hone
my strawberry finishing skills.  
(Yes....I finished this one upside down!) 
But it still works.  
Manka has some beautiful freebies as well
finishes.  If you haven't already discovered
her blog, you won't be disappointed
if you check it out.

Hope all of you have a nice Mother's Day and happy stitching weekend....

    Your strawberry looks fantastic! I wouldn't have known it was upside down. I'd love to have a go at one of these.
