An exchange received

I received today a wonderful exchange piece from  Ellen  I feel very lucky, this is from the Swap with Nina Round 4 - French Designer exchange. Mine hasn't been received yet by my swap partner, so I can't show that yet, but this one is stunning that Ellen has made for me.

Ellen tells me that the design is from Les Petites Croix de Christne and is a freebie. I didn't get just one pillow I got 2, the little pillow is made with the same fabric that Ellen used for the backing on the larger pillow. Aren't they just lovely!! I also received a wonderful array of goodies, fabric, needles, beads and buttons.

Many many Thanks Ellen for my exchange pieces, You are a very talented lady - please go and visit her blog, she has stitched and finished some wonderful things.

Hope that your weather is as wonderful as ours is here. I have Mum and Dad staying with me a for a week, and I am so enjoying it, Mum and I are starting a little SAL, that we hope to have finished by Thursday.
I'll leave you with this weeks flowers in my jug - mostly stolen roses from next doors garden (they do know that I have taken them LOL! and some peonies from my garden added too.

I am so happy to hear that you like what I stitched for you. Your picture is gorgeous! Can I use it, you are a much better photographer than me.

Love to visit your blog, your stitching and finishing are so beautiful and creative.

Hugs,

Very beautiful exchange!
And your flower arrangement is gorgeous. Is it the same with stolen roses like with stolen cherries? Do they look/flower/smell better? ;-)
My neighbour always steals (with my allowance) lilac in my garden, when it's flowering - that is already a tradition ;-)

Hugs from Austria

A beautiful exchange! This design is so pretty, and when I saw it as a freebie I printed it right away. I still need to stitch it though! The one you got in your exchange is just beautiful!

I have a question for you, when do you by the "Shepherds Bush" grafics? thank you very much...

Karan said...

That's a lovely exchange - lucky you. :0)
More beautiful flowers too. My peonies didn't last long at all, thanks to the hot weather, & the rose bush bloomed magnificently... but whilst we were on holiday, so they were about blown when we got home. Ah well - there's always next year! LOL :0)
