Exchange TO Claire

My partner on the Jaynes attic stitching exchange was Claire and I really couldn't decide what to stitch for her, so I finally decided on this:



Partly because I have seemed to 'know' Claire for ages I think its because we have been on Jaynes board together for so long LOL!!

I stitched it on 32ct linen and used my Heavenly Hues threads for it.


It again was a nice one to stitch and I have finished it as a mattress pinkeep, Clare let me know today that it had arrived to her safely and that she liked it - which I am pleased about.


Wow thankyou so much everyone for all the wonderful comments you have been leaving me and for all your visits - do you know on Tuesday I think it was I had 300 and odd visits off folks - WOW!! thats simply amazing and I really do appreciate it. I'm behind again myself for blog reading but I promise to catch up soon.

I received today the simply beee autiful tin from Becky, it looked lovely on Beckys pictures but even more wonderful IRL. I'll be posting pics up tomorrow of it as we are installing a watering system in the back garden at the moment and Mark keeps shouting me to help, so until tomorrow in my post packed week (((HUGS))) to you all.

Su,
This looks just lovely. It's one of my all time favourites as you know - I've stitched it 5 times :>) The linen and Heavenly Hues give it a lovely faded vintage look. I love the edging fabric on the mattress. It's so pretty. Lucky Claire!
Hugs, Angela

It's lovely, and I'm sure Clare is thrilled.

I had a friend stitch this for me a couple of years back as the little sampler book that it was originally designed as. It's lovely.
