Favourite Things Exchange

Hello dear stitching friends. 
We are currently in Winter here in Western Australia with intermittent days of rain and cold nights. I love to stitch cuddled up in my pj's and dressing gown.

Well as the heading suggests I recently participated in the Stitched With Love "My Favourite Things" exchange.
I had to send to April for this round.  April hinted at Halloween and colours green and black, so that is what I focussed on for her exchange.  Here is a picture of the exchange as a whole.


I stitched Lizzie Kate's "Eek" and made it into a pinkeep using some fluro green fuzzy trim for the edging.

I received my exchange from Lynda, and I must say she hit the nail on the head with the items she sent me.  I have quite a mix of fave designers, themes and finishes so Lynda picked Plum Street Samplers from my list and stitched up "Hare's Spring" for me and finished it as a pinkeep.  She also included "Hare's Summer" chart, the LHN ornie (which was on my wishlist), some gorgeous fabric and hand dyed fabric and a little hedgehog stamp.  Thank you Lynda for such a delightful parcel, this was a great exchange.


I am currently stitching on a travelling pattern that I am part of, it is travelling to selected stitchers around the world.  I will post pictures as soon as I have this one finished.  I have also just recently stitched another small travelling pattern that is making its way around to three stitchers who put their name down, I will post pictures of this one in my next post.
Until next time, happy stitching
Lisa

Wasn't this exchange great fun?! I love the ornie you made for April - I know how much April likes Halloween stitching! :0) I too am a big Plum Street Samplers fan. The Hares are so cute!

Such a great exchange, Lisa--it always amazes me how creative other stitchers are in putting together a package! Your green and black themed items are wonderful :)
