Biscornu Exchange

For my Biscornu Exchange, I had a hard time deciding on what I wanted to stitched. I finally settled on the following.
Pattern: Wichelt Imports Freebie
Stitched on Linen
Thread: DMC
Stitched for: Lynn B

I received a biscornu that I have been wanting for a long time. I am very happy with it. Thank you Ellen.

Valentine Exchange

Hey! You know what good intentions get you.... Well I have been trying to post pictures of my Valentine's Day Exchange for a while. Right now I am working 3 jobs (mind you one is only a couple of hours a day) and am exhausted every evening especially since I have to get up at five for the first one. Note: I am not an early riser by nature but rather a night owl. So, here we go.

Pattern: Be Mine Valentine by Lizzie Kate
Threads: DMC and "Love"
Fabric: Silkweaver's Pink Champagne
28 Count Opalescent Lugana

The person I sent to was Rita. I stitched it up and made it into a pinkeep. I used "Love" to stitch the heart. I sent some goodies and a pattern from her wish list. I really enjoyed stitching and gathering this exchange.

Stitched by: Margie

Margie finished it as a beautiful box filled with lots of goodies. My nephews appreciated the Sweet Hearts. This was my first box and I love it. I have plans for the charms, buttons, and ribbons.

Thank you for stopping by.
