Fair and Square Round One

The idea of a block exchange really interested me and the Fair and Square exchange organized by Vonna and Annemarie is going to be a lot of fun. (Thanks Vonna and Annemarie!) I received my first block this week from Yasmin in Malaysia.

Yasmin stitched Spot of Spring from The Drawn Thread. She obviously had been studying my blog and knew that I was rather partial to the Drawn Thread designs. Yasmin sent some other wonderful goodies including some overdyed fibers, a frogging needle, and a coin purse made from some Malaysian wedding fabric. It was truly fun receiving this first square from Yasmin! I think I'm going to eventually put mine together into a quilt of some sort.



I also learned that Yasmin just received the square that I sent to her. I used elements from the City Stitcher, Country Stitcher chart from Little House Needleworks. I felt that it symbolized our friendship!



I'm looking forward to the next round for Fair & Square.
