Seasonal exchange - Summer



A while ago I was invited to join a Seasonal exchange where we are given a partner to send to for a whole year, the first time we send is a secret to your partner (like the posting below with Claudia, she is sending to me), but of course for the 3 others after that, they know that its you sending to them. I was given Nicki as the person I was to send to and I was truely delighted as we like a lot of the same type of designs and I knew it would be fun to stitch for her.

Now I knew that Nicki was a lover of 1/1 and of redwork, so I really wanted to at some point in the exchange stitch something in redwork for her and I deliberated whether I should do that for Winter, but I changed my mind as I found the cutest design by L'R de Rien in my stash and decided that it would be perfect. Its very small when done 1/1 especially on 32ct linen, it turned out about almost 2 inches in size. I wanted to finish it as a hornbook as I had an itsy bitsy wee one that I wanted to use. Nicki emailed me yesterday to let me know that it had arrived and that she really liked it so I was quite chuffed that she did.


I would like to thank everyone thats sending comments my way and visiting my blog I see a few new names are appearing and I am so pleased that you like to visit my blog, it really makes blogging more fun when folks visit - Thankyou to all my visitors old and new!

Fabulous stitching. Even small projects turn into large ones when they're done over 1. Giving an exchange gift like that is truly a labor of love and thoughtful.

A wonderful hornbook !
A creative like 'l'R de rien' does not desappoint us ! The thread is very quite selected.

Hi,

I was just visiting your blog and I just wanted to say how I enjoy the work you do in stitching. Everything is beautiful on the pictures and I can only imagine what it is all like in person. You are very talented. I especially am fond of the little piece you did L'R de Rien in all red thread. I have been trying to find the pattern for this online and I don't know what it is called. I'm wondering if you could tell me the name and maybe where I could get it? I'd love to be able to stitch this as a gift for a friend of mine who also is crazy about anything red. I'm sorry I don't have a blog to answer to but I'm hoping that maybe somehow you could direct me to where to find the piece? I would really appreciate it and if not, please know that I will still continue to admire your work. You are very inspiring.

Thank you for your time.

Ann
