Seasonal exchange - Autumn
As you know I'm a member of a small group called seasonal exchanges - our next season was Autumn. My partner is Nicki. This is the 2nd exchange I have stitched for her. Its by Blackbird Designs - Pumpkin Blossom. I have finished it how it was suggested by the designers into a needlebook.
The fabric I used to stitch it is called Autumn Leaves and I'm almost positive its by Sugar Maple Fabrics (I lost the label). I used the recommeded threads and some Mill Hill beads.
Its closed using some copper silk ribbon I found in my stash, and the fabric lining the inside is by Blackbird Designs which I bought at the Newcastle Metro stitch show last year.
I just want to thank Yuko and Patti for awarding me my very first smile awards I was really chuffed when I found out I had been given them - thankyou so much ladies - Hugs!! EDITED TO ADD: I also want to thank Lesley and Sally both of whom also awarded me Smile awards I am so sorry ladies that I missed you and I really am grateful for them.
I'm off to London in the next couple of days for the CA Wells workshops which are being held over the weekend, I am so looking forward to them. I have stitched my Saturday class but not the Sunday one. I have been having a bit of trouble with my eyes of late seeing 1/1 even using my magnifier. But not to worry I'm sure I'll get there in the end LOL!!
