Recently, a small group of us decided to do an exchange with the theme of "The Drawn Thread." Today, a wonderful package from Suzanne was waiting for me when I arrived home from work. In it was this beautiful fob created especially for me! Suzanne used motifs from Tocatta Number II to create this beauty! Her stitches are so delicate; there are some beads added to embellish her stitching. It's really a stunning piece!
Here's the front:
Here's the back (my initials!):
Suzanne included a chart from Thistle Threads "How Doth the Busy Bee" - it's a design to be stitched on a band for a basket - as well as some other goodies, needlework themed fabric, ribbon, beads, and some metallic thread. I'm quite delighted with her thoughtful package. Thank you Suzanne!
Hazel also sent me a note today indicating that my package to her had arrived. I decided to stitch the Little Spot Sampler and finished it into a small pillow for her. I thought it turned out nicely! Hazel has some nice photos here of the entire package.
I feel like I've been running in circles lately and going nowhere! Red Reindeer is waiting to be finished (haven't touched it since my last post!) I did stitch and finish a biscornu and it's ready to be mailed. Tonight I started working on an ornament for Jill as it's her turn to receive in March (and there are only 7 days left! Yikes!)
Until next time...
