I finished up a private exchange piece as one of my first finishes of the year. I was asked to do a private swap piece with a lady called Marion who lives in Germany. As our seasons are opposite we decided that I would stitch her a Spring themed piece and she would stitch me an Autumn themed piece. I posted out to her last week and received an email that she has already received. WOW, that was quick for a nice change!!
Here is the piece that I stitched for Marion.
LHN - Soft & Sweet
Stitched on a piece of hand dyed linen using silks provided in the kit
Finished as a mug rug
As you can see I didn't stitch the whole design, just the middle portion and then I graphed the word "Spring" to fit inside the banner. Another cross stitched and quilted finish that I just loved putting together.
Marion posted out to me the other day so I'm hoping it will be a quick delivery too.
I have also finished and packaged up my piece and extras for the Initial Heart Swap being run by Cheryll at Gone Stitchin.
I have managed to get a little stitching done, I am back on my SAL Sorpresa 3. I really want to catch up as I love this design and the way it is coming together. I just find stitching the many trees and snowflakes are what puts me off. After this one is done I think I will concentrate on getting my CHS Alphablocks finished and Sarah Spurr and then my big WIPS will all be done.
Until next time, happy stitching
