Update on exchanges and finishes

Look what I received on Thursday. It was my winnings from
Carol R - iStitchaholic. It is a wonderfully stitched and finished
Biscornu. I just love it. Plus she sent some linen, floss, ribbon
and fabric. I am really quite lucky to have won this.

On Friday I received my Summer House from Hazel - quietlystitching.
She stitched a design from Les Grilles de Maryse. Hazel did a great
job of stitching and finishing. She also sent some goodies: 3 skeins of
Dragon Floss, 3 skeins of DMC variegated floss, ribbon, fabric and
Jasmine fragrance beads. Plus she is sending something else
that didn't make it to her before she mailed this package.
Thanks for everything Hazel.
I finished my second wedding sampler for my daughter to
give as a gift. Got it done last night. Not a moment to soon!!!!

I received these squares from Angela last week for
Fair and Square # 8 and finished them this morning.
I really like the way they turned out.

Then last but not least I finished Joyful Summer into
a pinkeep. I think it's quiet cute !!! I should have taken
a picture of the rick rack on the side, it's very colorful.
A very festive piece. I enjoyed stitching this piece.

Hope everyone is having a great stitching weekend.

Now back to some more sewing and stitching.

Another Saturday of finishing. WOW! Are your hands sore? I like the oval pinkeep. Was that hard to cut?

Hazel said...

Lovely finishes. Glad you liked what I sent you. xx

Stephanie said...

Wow - you sure have been busy. I love seeing all your finishes, they are very inspiring - I'm trying to have a finishing weekend but I don't think I'd be able to keep pace with you :)

What a treat to see all of your gifts and finishes! I just love your Joyful Summer piece finished as a pinkeep. The colorful ribbons are wonderful. Did you braid them for your edging? I'd love to see a picture of it.
