Picnic Theme Exchange

I recently participated in a Picnic Theme Exchange.  We had to stitch an item relating to picnic's or a tea party, include a recipe and 5 other items.
Here is what I sent to my partner Lainey:

PS Watermelon design stitched on 28ct Silkweaver "Rhapsody"
finished as a long pillow.

Extra's included

And here is what my partner (Christina) sent to me:

Cupcake design from "The Historical Sampler Company"
finished as a small pin pillow.

Extra's included.

What a fun and exciting exchange, I really enjoyed it and have already signed up for the next one.
Until next time, happy stitching.

What a fun exchange. Both presents are beautiful! However, partial to watermelons because they are a staple of my diet, I was wondering what watermelon pattern you used (designer? title?).

Take care!
