Two Exchange Updates

Despite my hectic schedule, I have managed to do some stitching. But first, let me share with you an exchange that I received over the weekend. Sylvie sent me this delightful little pinkeep, stitched over one, for the ABC Exchange on the SBEBB. isn't it cute? Along with the pinkeep, she sent a french pattern and some Vicki Clayton silks. What a great exchange from Sylvie!




Today, I received word that Marie received the needleroll that I sent to her for the Potting Shed Exchange. As Marie said in one of her posts, it's an "oversized" needleroll. The design is from Lizzie Kate.



Lots of rain here tonight complete with thunder and lightening. Hopefully the grass and other plants and trees will benefit from this spring storm!

Oh my goodness, Cathy, I don't know which to comment on first - they're both so lovely! That teensy redwork alphabet is just precious! And your potting shed needleroll is utterly adorable!

The Redwork alphabet from Sylvie is just adorable! Sylvie is such a sweetie and perfect stitcher ;)
AND let me tell you that I sincerely love that Potting shed exchange piece you did for Marie! I almost used that one myself and then I changed patterns! It's perfect Cathy as always:) and so perfectly executed! Great Job!

I love both the exchanges :) Sylvie did a wondeful job on the ABC exchange. I like the design she chose and it suits the pinkeep finish just perfect.

I love the way you finished the LK. I received that design last year in an exchange from none other than Sylvie. A beautifully framed piece and I stitched it and finished it into a flatfold for a gift for Carol :) It's a popular design...and I may have to stitch it again seeing your NR finish! I love it!! Congratulations!

Love the redwork pinkeep - so pretty. The needleroll is fantastic too - I love that it is "oversized"!

Did you notice n is missing on the alphabet (I guess it is "included" in the m) and the antennas of the bee represent the v. I realized it when I finished to stitch the design.

Your NR is gorgeous!
