Drawn Thread Exchanges

These are the Drawn Thread exchanges I received and sent from a private exchange through the Friends Though Threads blog:

This is the ornament I received from Gaby. She stitched me Too Tiny Too from the Drawn Thread Too Tiny Samplers. She put some lace around the outside edge of the ornament. Gaby did a wonderful job stitching and finishing this ornament. I just love it.

Gaby also sent these great "goodies": a pair of scissors, a great addition to my collection, some linen and two patterns--a German one and a French one.
Thank you again, Gaby. This was a great exchange.
And look what design I stitched for my Drawn Thread partner Suzanne!!!! I stitched the very same design I received from Gaby. I stitched mine over one and finished it into a pendant.

I also sent Suzanne a Drawn Thread pattern off her wish list with the fabric and threads, plus a laying tool my hubby made out of a sterling silver piece of flatware.
Another great exchange.

Hi :) Both exchanges are lovely BUT I LOVE the 1/1 in the necklace VERY much ! I too received this design in a previous exchange but as a Pinkeep.
Fabulous laying tool your husband made WOW he must be very clever and talented! Did he make the pendant too? I really love it !
Enjoy the week :)

Joan -- wonderful exchanges both sent and received. Too funny how you and Gaby were on the same wavelength!

Suzanne said...

How funny that both you and Gaby stitched the exact same design. You both did an exception job.

Joan, thank you again for the wonderful package, I love everything you sent. I didn't manage a start yesterday on the chart you sent as Amelie is not too well, I think she has a tummy upset. But the fabric has the edges over-sewed and it's already in the Q-snaps waiting for me to begin.

Whata coincidence that you stitched and received the same DT piece, lol. But it's so great to see the different finishes. I love both. Great exchange!

Glad you like it Joan,

That pendant is fabulous!!! Was it difficult to finish this way? What wonderful talent, both the stitching and finishing.
