Beginner's Exchange for Leslie

Leslie received my exchange gift today so I can post a picture now. I've been wanting to stitch this Hardanger Welcome Heart for a number of years and finally found a good reason to do so. I was worried about the color (pale green on white), but Leslie said that she likes it (whew!)



I had sent some other goodies along with the stitched piece but forgot to take a photo of those...

Cathy! I haven't seen this piece before. Leslie was surely thrilled to receive this wonderful hardanger gift from you. Great job (as usual)!

That is really lovely! I love the color combo and I'm happy Leslie does. It scares me to even think about attempting Hardinger but I do think it's so beautiful; particularly this one.

Oh Cathy, that is just so gorgeous. I love it heaps. I have not done any hardanger for ages.... now who is the designer of that beauty....?

Well done on a great exchange I would say.
