Stitching Update!

I haven't had many updates to post lately, but I can share that Aniza received the pinkeep that I stitched and finished for her.



The design is a freebie from Papillon Creations called Ole! I used a beautiful hand dyed silk from Dinky Dyes called Rain Forest on some fabric from my stash.

I also sent this cute little fob to Vonna earlier this week. The design is from Prairie Schooler (an old one - leaflet #17! I used fabric and fibers from my stash.




Well, I think that is all I have for now. I have one exchange in transit and two that I am going to finish this weekend for mailing next week. It's a long weekend here in the U.S. as we pay tribute to the men and women who have died in military service. Monday, Memorial Day, is a holiday.

Hi Cathy, it's good to hear from you. The (replacement) exchange gifts that you sent to Vonna are really stunning - you downplay it too much on your blog! I saw it all on hers, and "WOW!"

The pinkeep you made is also beautiful. What a gorgeous color you chose!

beautiful gifts, Cathy! You were so kind to stitch a replacement for Vonna. I didn't know that her gift had gone missing. What a good friend you are!
