A group of 6 stitchers got together and formed the Stitching Between Friends Exchange group. Our first exchange is a Christmas themed one. I was partnered with Pokua who happens to live here in Perth WA only a 20 minute drive away. So we decided to get together and have afternoon tea at her house and exchange our goodies.
Here is the beautiful exchange I received from Pokua.
Bataille des Anges by Chez Mounette.
Stitched on hand dyed linen using a variegated thread.
Finished as a cube/large pinkeep.
Extras included a piece of 32ct Belfast natural raw opalescent fabric, a packet of thread drops, heart tape measure and some chocolates.
And here is what I made for Pokua.
Snowman by Tralala.
Stitched on Light Blue 28ct evenweave using DMC.
Finished as a wallhanging.
Extras included a star shaped Christmas plate, a pair of Christmas ornies and a sheet of Christmas stickers.
We had such a delightful day, it was so nice to spend time with someone who enjoys the same hobby and has similar tastes in stitching. I look forward to our next get together Pokua, and thank you for inviting me over.
I am currently working on some ornies at the moment, two are finished and ready to go so I should be able to show them soon.
Thank you all for the comments you left and the emails I received in regards to my last post and my kidney stone issue. I am delighted to say that when I went in for my ultrasound there was no sign of it anywhere. So I am one of the lucky ones that didn't even feel it pass. WooHoo!! It still took a few more days for the bruising and swelling to go down after being poked and prodded by the ultrasound wand and I also have a large bruise where they placed a drip in my arm (which is still quite dark and purple) but I'm happy to report that I am now pain free.
Until next time, happy stitching.
