My exchange from Lucy

This is the lovely exchange piece that I received from Lucy. She made the design up herself and made it into a little hanging pillow. I love it Lucy and the colour is just right and the words couldn't be truer....I'm never without a cuppa in my hand. Thank you.

This is the absolutely divine cushion which I received from Chris this morning….I adore it so much, it’s in “my colours” and will fit into my bedroom so perfectly, the fabrics she has used are so pretty and the ribbon trim just finishes it off so delightfully.

Thank you so very much Chris :~)

Home Exchange Arrived..

...and it is LOVELY. Thanks so much, Edit, I love it. Now I just have to find somewhere to put it!
Sorry for the fuzziness of the picture.. with it being framed the glass interfered with my camera. The picture doesn't do it justice, at all. It is a gorgeoous piece, and well stitched.
Keep on Stitching.
Hugs and Stitches.

Home exchange on the way

I have posted my home exchange this morning. It doesn't have a long way to go, with some luck can be in its new home by the end of the week. Watch your mailboxes :)

Thank you Elisa

The postman had perfect timing by bringing this today as I'm off on holiday within the next hour and had planned to post a warning to my partner that I would be away and not able to say if it had arrived!

I love it and it's so true, I will find somewhere to hang it when I get home

Autumn/halloween exchange!!!

i have been thinking about this..........i had trouble deciding which one to go for, well halloween was my first choice of course lol but then i thought "oh but i love autumn too" so i was thinking........... if anyone would like to do both halloween and autumn in the exchange then thats fine, obviously only if you can manage both pieces in the time given!!!

so ..........

if you have chosen one and would like to do the other one too please let me know!

Pineapple sunshine!!

Thank you Lucy for this sunny pin cushion, how did you know I needed one and the sun will brighten my days in all this rain. I just love the post card too.

Thank you

Summer is here :)

(: Hi everyone :)

My exchange arrived yesterday, but since the weather was so awful I couldn't get the right light to get a picture, so here we go today instead :) It's a great flatfold from Jane :) She even included some DMC threads (which I really appreciate, since my LNS is Beaties, and they only sell anchor *is sad*) and some Kreinik Metallics Gold Thread (something I have never used before!)
She also included the card you can see in the picture, which is a layered one, like decoupage, which I also love :) Thank you so much to Jane, I ADORE it. Trying to find somewhere to put it now - I've got something EVERYWHERE!!

Looking forward to the Home exchange for this month, should be a good one!!

Oh, and has my exchange been recieved yet? I posted it on Monday and haven't seen anything posted yet.

Summer Ex Posted

I am really sorry for being a slacker, but my parcel is in the post on it's way to it's new home, Hopefully it should get there by next week!
