The fabric in the picture below is the rest of the hand tie dyed fabric that I did myself for the backing. My first time tie dying, too.
All in the Orange theme, for Michelle too.
The postcard that there was only half of, I unfortunately don't have a picture of, but it's one from WH Smiths, with a funny camel on it. On an Orange Background. And I bought an orange pen PURELY for writing that postcard too.
I'm so annoyed with the royal mail. And I won't stop until I get refunded for EVERY element of that exchange. That means the fabric, the dye, the thread, the aida, the ribbon AND the postage!
Keep on Stitching.
This is just fabulous I love it, I love the border, I didn't think of putting a border on the one I sent, I will have to remember for next time.
Thank you so much Lorna I love it, I will definitely have to do another!

My name is Lucy, known as Lula, I am 33 and live in Hertfordshire. I live with my fella Terry (who works away so I don't see much of him) and my lil lad jacob who is 4. And also lurking in the house is a crazy spaniel Monty.
I love making things and my fav hobby is cross stitch. I have been stitching for 25 years although seem to have remarkably few finished pieces to show for it.... lots of UFOs though. I have never taken part in a cross stitch exchange before.
I'm really looking forward to getting to know you all.
PS I really wanna join in the new hanging ornie scissor keep exchange but I'd be no 13.... bit worried about the implications! Can someone hold my hand through this first one???

what about a small hanger or scissor keep, your probably talking about something no more than 4o stitches square, just to give you an idea of the size,you can do it shaped if you like as in a diamond or a heart, add a ribbon or a braid, whatever you like, just something small, a quick stitch.
you have until the end of april to sign up and until the end of may for it to arrive with your partner..

I have absolutely loved stitching my piece for this exchange and I am just sorry that it is late. I hope my partner loves it as much as I have enjoyed working on it.

so you need to stitch your design in any theme you wish, stitch the address on the front, back it with fabric and turn it into an envelope, pop a card inside for your partner and post it! simple!
if anyone would like instructions in a bit more detail email me and i will try to help .
you have until the 20th april to sign up and then you must have stitched and posted your piece to arrive by the end of may, you can start stitching straight away and i will send out partner details on the 21st april for you to add to your envelopes.
happy stitching guys
