Exchange stitching.....

I recently participated in two of my favorite
exchangesand thought I would share.

Lisa was my partner in the Seasonal Exchange
 and here is my piece for her....

Hollis Designs "Snowy Littles"
stitched on 32ct linen
w/recommended thread

My procrastination resulted in the package going
out just in time.  In my haste, I forgot to take a
pic and thank Lisa for letting my borrow hers.

I really like how this one turned out and
hope to stitch/finish all four of the
seasonal designs in this series.

Laura was my partner in the LK Exchange...

LK "Summer Basket"
Stitched on 25ct cream evenweave over 1
with DMC

Since we haven't had much of a winter I thought
I would move right along to summer.  This
design is perfect for  a cute pincushion don't
you think?  I am glad Laura is happy with it.

Thanks as always for visiting.

  3. Karen, very nice finishes. I like that you used the Hobby Lobby wooden frame in grren. I have a couple of extras of these frames I will have to see what designs I have that fit inside. Also love your paper crafts from the previous post. Marty

  15. Cute pieces! So now I'm curious. How did you cut the scalloped edge on the LK piece? And is it glued or sewn to the fabric? That is such a clever way to mount the work.
