An Exchange for Spring

I joined a seasonal exchange group called Friends Stitching Through The Seasons and we just completed our Spring Exchange.

I was very excited to get Faye for the year to stitch for. Faye had sent me a wonderful RAK awhile back and this would give me a chance to pay her back.

I stitched a Homespun Elegance design called Delivering Fleurs and finished it as a pin pillow.


Here is a picture of the entire exchange I sent her.


Karen D. has my name and today I received my exchange.

I had mentioned that I would like a Shepherd's Bush design as I don't have as many of them as I would like and Karen answered. She stitched Scatter Kindness and finished it in one of my favorite finishes. It has lots of cute buttons on it and she even put our names, exchange name and the year on the back.



She also sent me the most wonderful goodies that are just perfect for me. A scissors (can't have enough of those), Boysenberry Belle Soie silk thread, which will be perfect for my "pink stitches", the Just Nan Peacock needle slide kit and a peacock pattern. They were all wrapped up in the purple fabric that is in the background and the very colorful ribbon.


This was a very fun exchange and I can't wait until Summer!
