Thankyou Lorna!!!

I have recieved my Spring Exchange piece from Lorna and it looks amazing! I love it! I couldn't wait when I picked it up from the Post Office and opened it as soon as I walked out the door so this picture is taken of it on the passenger seat of my car.

Spring Exchange to Rachael

Here is the exchange piece I sent to Rachael. I put some of my materials in so you can see what it can be used for. I also included a matching pincushion that had a keyring attached so you can hook it onto scissors too etc.

I put a piece of felt under the part that sits on the arm of the chair so hopefully it won't slip around.

So glad you like it Rachael! I loved making it.

Halfway there

I am half way through my spring exchange piece.

Obviously I can't show it till it's been received but I am loving it and believe I can make a hell of a lot more :) Quicker without cross-stitching a piece for it first lol. Hope my partner likes it...

all the usual rules apply, post using recorded delivery(unless over seas) if your item goes missing you must replace it,  if you are posting overseas please post in plenty of time for the item to reach its destination, its not very fair to wait until the last day to post and then it taking 3 weeks to get to its destination!

ok for some reason i cant reply to your post maddy so here goes, i am very happy to get this moving again and would be happy to take part in some of the exchanges and organise some too but i do not have the time to do so for all of them, which why i asked for help in the first place...

there is one thing that i would like to say though and i don't want anyone to get upset about it and i will try to say it as nicely as i can ......  if you commit to an exchange PLEASE PLEASE come through with your side of it and on time, there is always a  time between the exchange being posted and the time that sign ups close, if you have any doubts about being able to fulfill your side then this is the time to pull out not after sign ups have closed, and to be fair it only takes 2 people to do an exchange so as long as there is someone to exchange with we dont rely have a need to cancel do we??

just my thoughts at the moment i may come back and add to it lol...........

what does everyone else think ?

Starting up again?

Would anyone like to get this rolling again for 2012? I'm happy to organise exchanges etc if anyone is interested. Please comment with your thoughts and any ideas on exchanges. :)

x-mas in july

Hello lovelies!

Sorry this comes bit late. I've been so busy with school hardly had no time taking photos.

Here are beautiful gifts I received from Viv last week. All the way from Canada. I know there was a postal strike and I moved last month to another town so it took some time to travel. I was very happy to receive it. I just love everything you've put together Viv! Ornie, lace and the thimble:)

All the best

I got some really beautiful lace and a gorgeus ornament and even a canadian thimble!
I'm so very thrilled. Thank you Viv:)

Ornie and more

Here is a pic of the lovely ornament received from Lynn yesterday
for the Christmas in July Exchange .
It is so cute and she sent a few goodies along with it which will
certainly come in handy with the xmas season and all the projects I want to do.
Thank you so much...vivian

Hello Ladies

My name is Jaclyn and i live in Greater Manchester. I've been stitching for 13 years and love it.
Is there any plans for any more exchanges in the next few months? Looking forward to taking part.

Ornie received...

My "Christmas in July" Ornament was received from Niina a couple of weeks ago and I have been way behind on posting things to my blog and groups. SO sorry!
She also sent along 3 straw ornies from Finland as well. They are all SO gosh darned CUTE! I love them all!
Thank you so much Niina!

Xmas in July mailed

just a quick note to let you know that I have posted my package.
with the postal strike just getting over, hope my package doesn't end up in a basket somewhere as they are not working overtime to clear up the backlog. So it may take a little longer to get to its destination.

X-Mas in July exchange updates!

Hi all exchangers please post here an update as to if you shipped your package out yet. Also then post when you have received your package.

Thank you,


Tuesday, July 5, 2011

I'm sorry too - update...

Unfortunately I am in the same dilemma as Lorna, I have it stitched but not made up. Needed to wait for threads and now I'm stuck as to how to make it up, I should be able to get it in the post by the weekend.

Edited to say:
Posted my exchange Thursday! Hope my partner likes it!

Monday, July 4, 2011


my exchange is going to be ever so slightly late, i have finished stitching but not finishing, should be out by the weekend, dont know where the time goes, and i thought it was the middle of the month until i came to check just in case lol

New Memeber

Hello I am new to this blog. My name is Pam and I have been stitching for quiet sometime now. I am a military wife and mother. Both my husband and daughter are in the Navy. I have a small daycare in my home so this allows me to be home for my family. Hope to be able to stitch a few projects for exchange.
