Maddy - Exchange arrived

I had to go and pick the parcel up from the Post Office yesterday but haven't been able to get near the laptop to say thank you! It was difficult not to rip it open before I got home!!

All I can say is wow! It is absolutely gorgeous and the photo I have taken really doesn't do it justice. It is beautiful! The backing fabric colours are wonderful and the stitched piece is great. I love it! Thank you for the little teddy too - he is so cute! The thread will be great for when I get my hardanger out again and of course the fabric is brilliant. Where did you get them from? Hopefully somewhere that is online so I can get some more!

I really am chuffed to bits with everything. I am so glad it wasn't lost in the post!! Thank you!

Autumn/Halloween exchange

Hi ladies, I signed up for both the halloween and autumn exchanges. So far I have received from Chris but not my other partner. I don't know if you have posted that you sent to me but if so I haven't received anything yet! If you haven't sent yet then obviously it isn't lost in the post or anything!!

Have a good weekend!

Take care
Sharon (shebafudge)

Thank you Jan

For my gorgeous halloween piece, i love it and well done on your second pin keep a great finish, and the extras too, lovely.

thanks again

Exchange arrived this morning

And I am totally bowled over by it.
Lisa has done an outstanding job and I love it so much
Thank you, thank you, thank you Lisa

Did you send this?

This arrived yesterday but there was nothing on or in the envelope to tell me who the kind sender was.

If it was you, a very big thank you.  My DS2 wants to take it for himself, he's so taken with it, but I love looking at it in the lamplight.  It looks lovely.  If it moves from the front room, it will be to my bedroom!  Many thanks

Hallowe'en Exchange

Sorry for the three posts in a row..

Just wanted to let you know that my exchange piece arrived from Lorna..
Thank You, Lorna, it's great.

I just love the fabric you used for the backing, Lorna. Any chance you can remember where you got it from and can tell me? I want to make hubby a t-shirt out of it :) x

I am planning on doing an RAK for 5 people. Maybe more.

If you would like to recieve a RAK (random act of kindness) from me, then please, post a reply to this post, and I will choose 5 names from a hat when I return from my trip on the 19th. You'll just have to wait and see if it is you, though :p

Hope to see some posts soon xx

I have a Question

Can people please tell me, truthfully, if they think there is too much backstitch in my pieces.

And I don't mean "two of them are complete backstitch" because believe me, I've had my ear chewed about that already.

I mean across ALL of them, in general.

Autumn Exchange - thanks Lindsay

Look what I received from Lindsay. It is all so pretty AND she sent me some of the fabric she used for the back.
