It seems I haven't been around much, but really I have been! Posting on my blog is just usually at the bottom of my list!
For the past year, I participated in a Seasonal Exchange that BeckyS organized. Every season we sent a stitched piece off to our partner - my partner was Simone. This was my last season to send to her. I stitched this Mary Garry design and modeled it after a piece I received from Nancy K last year. As I explained to Simone, I took some liberties with this exchange. The piece is titled "Raining Pins & Needles" - it has a needlework theme; not exactly a Spring theme, but "rain" does fall in "Spring," right? Unless of course if you live in Minnesota because it is snowing here today! It's finished as a pinkeep. What do you think of the cool ABC fabric on the back? I sent a few other goodies along including a pair of the much sought after Emma Ginghers.
My friend Joan (aka Mama Joan) celebrates her birthday year round. It's a good thing, because I'm not very good about getting things stitched in time for birthdays! The pinkeep that I made for Georgie was so cute and I had extra linen and fabric left over, so I had to make one for Joan too! She didn't mind receiving it a month late!
My Fair & Square for Round 6 were mailed last weekend - maybe I will be able to show those to you sometime soon. They had a long way to travel!
This week I became acquainted with a new stitching blogger, Amy. Amy's blog is called Cross Stitch and Cupcakes. Check it out!
Have a great Saturday and thanks for stopping by!
