Quaker exchange TO Simone



Simone emailed me tonight to say that she has received the quaker exchange that I stitched for her and that she liked it.



I stitched 2 designs from A quaker pattern book by Ellen Chester (With My needle), as the spring quaker them was green and purple.



I stitched it 1/1 on 28ct Waterlily fabric using Vikkie Clayton silk thread. I decided to finish it as a flatfoldas I felt the design suited that finishing style.



Well my holidays are drawing ever nearer just 2 more sleeps and we will be there LOL!! My cold hasn't seemed to have budged an inch but its not going to spoil my holiday, so when I get back I should have loads to show as I will probably have received the SBEBB Love of stitching exchange and the FGBB Biscornu exchange, plus pics of what I sent to my recipients and of course what I stitched when I was on holiday, I've picked 2 projects to take with me, one is a LHN and the other CCN!!

Plus today in the post I received my wonderful stash order from Mary Kathryn which I will share on my return, but its all great stuff!!

Hope everyone has a great Easter weekend and I'll see you all when I get back!!
