Exchanges Received

I have some exchange pieces to share with you that I have received recently.

Firstly is the Blackbird Exchange that I participated in at Michelle's blog. I received from April. She stitched for me a stocking from the Halloween Stocking booklet, it is stitched on 30ct linen and utilises WDW, GAST and CC threads.  This is my first stocking finish and I love it.  Thank you April.  April also included a LK chart for me and also the JCS Ornie preview mag.  Thanks again!


Second is my exchange piece from Kathy A for the Seasonal Exchange Summer round. 
The design is "Strawberry Biscornu" from The Gift of Stitching magazine in June. She also used one of the strawberry motifs to make a matching scissor fob. Kathy added beads around the outside of the biscornu and actually stitched our initials and the date on the underside.  Kathy used Zweigart's 28 count Cashel linen "Adobe".  I have displayed them both with the strawberry box that I received from Christina early last month for another exchange.  They all sit perfectly together.  Thank you Kathy, I love them to bits!!


Until next time, happy stitching
Lisa
