For Angela

Angela has received the parcel with our freebie design private exchange inside.  As mentioned in a previous post we decided to stitch each other a freebie design and leave it unfinished, so we could then choose our own finish for it.

I stitched Angela the Barbara Ana's "You Melt My Heart" design.  WOW was this design colourful or what!!  I loved stitching it as it was so bright and cheery.  I used a piece of hand dyed evenweave called Hydrangea and that was so pretty aswell.

I also made Angela an appliqued tea towel to use for her Christmas celebrations and I also included a shop bought ornie for her tree.

We enjoyed the theme for this years private exchange so we might just repeat it again next year.
Until next time, happy stitching/quilting

That's one thing that I love about Barbara Ana's designs - they usually are really colourful. You chose and stitched a great design by her for your exchange.
