It's always busy at the end of the school year; so many banquets and other activities. Summer sports are underway too - softball, baseball, and lacrosse are played at this house during the summer. Just two more days of school left; needless to say, my kids are very happy!
Despite my infrequent stitching posts, I do have some stitching to share with you today. Two of my exchanges were received yesterday.
Scissors Fob exchange on the FGBB - As some of you know, if I can incorporate a little Hardanger into my designs, I will. This fob design is from the Cindy Valentine Apricot Elegance needlecase/fob set that I stitched last year. For this version I used some of the new Leah's Threads purchased at the Nordic Needle retreat; I really like these threads! Beautiful shades of purple and gray on a soft gray fabric. This fob was stitched especially for Sharon!
Garden Exchange on the SBEBB - recently I received a cube finish from Heather for the Potting Shed exchange. It was so cool that I decided to try this finishing technique. So I had to find a design that was square - this block from Lizzie Kate fit the bill. The finishing was quite simple and I think it turned it pretty cute! This box finish now resides with Nancy.
(I'm sorry, the photo is a little fuzzy!)
My fourth PIF gift is ready to be mailed; it will probably go out this weekend. I have two more exchanges to finish up and then I'm going to take a little break (but not for too long!)
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
