Final Seasonal Exchange from Barbara

Photobucket



Isn't it lovely!!! This is the wonderful summer exchange piece I received from Barbara, this was our final seasonal exchange and I am sad to see it end as I have had as always a wonderful array of Barbara's wonderful stitching and finishing an I have so enjoyed it. Unfortunately I can't show you what I have stitched for her as its not quite finished yet,but I am rapidly catching up with myself over my PIF's and exchanges.

Barbara, handpainted the wooden box in a pinky red colour and has stitched a Mary Garry design for the top, as she knows how much I like MG. Inside the box, which I forgot to photograph was a wonderful thread winder with 2 houses on it, in rememberance of when we first met which was doing a neighbourhood RR, many many moons ago.


I had a lovely holiday and have come back with quite a tan which makes me look healthy and glowing LOL!! I am trying to get myself into a new sort of routine, which does involve lots and lots of stitching!! My sister Helen came over to visit just before I went away and has given me a new hairstyle which I love, getting your hair done always makes you feel so much better doesn't it!!

Thankyou again to you all for your continued visits and comments and emails, its been really nice to know that you are out there, and thankyou too to a couple of lovely ladies who have extended me invitations to visit, I was very overwhelmed by the lovely kind thoughts of you all.

Welcome back Su! What a lovely exchange piece from Barbara. It's stitched and finished beautifully, and the colors are so cheerful.

Your new routine sounds like a good one if it involves lots and lots of stitching! I agree a new hair style gives you a boost.
