I just heard from Wendy Jo that she received the HoE Lizzie Kate exchange that I sent her.
Wendy Jo had on her blog that she loves to decorate in Americana theme, so that is what I went with. I stitched Lizzie Kate's "God Bless America on a piece of 25ct. stash remnant with WDW & DMC white floss. I finished it as a pillow/pin cushion/draft catcher? (not sure exactly what to call it) and added a heart charm with the US Flag on it. The amazing thing here is that I SEWED! I ACTUALLY SEWED! I haven't sewed for many, many years as my machine was broke, at least I thought it was. My BFF, MamaJoan's wonderful husband, David, gave it a once over and the diagnosis was that I had the wrong bobbin in it. AAARRRGGGHHH!!!
Here is a picture of the pin cushion:
Isn't it cute? I was really happy with how it turned out. This was my first finish of this kind. Here is a picture of the entire exchange:
Another very fun exchange to put together.
Enjoy Wendy Jo!
