Yesterday I was able to share with you the summer exchange I sent to Gaby. Today I can show you the summer exchange that Gaby sent to me!
I received a wonderful package from her. The two of us apparently were on the same wavelength because look how she finished her exchange - a wallhanging, with a cute wire hanger that has three hearts in it. Now look at yesterday's post to see how I finished my exchange for her (a wallhanging with a wire hanger in the shape of heart!) What a coincidence!
Gaby's design is from a German designer by the name of Ulrike Blotzheim and it's called "Sommerkinder" (or Summer Children). Gaby sent the pattern to me so that I can stitch the other little girl that is part of this design. Isn't she cute? Gaby did a great job with her finishing too!
In addition to the stitched item, Gaby also sent this wonderful bag which she knit and then felted in her washing machine. I love it! The colors are so pretty! I look forward to using this bag! Finally, Gaby also sent a piece of fabby and some beutiful rose colored floss (not pictured). Thanks for everything Gaby.
Our last seasonal exchange will happen in October. It's been fun getting to stitch for and exchange with these four different German friends!
As promised, here's an update on BOAF Friendship Sampler - see, I'm making progress! (I took the picture outside; it looks a little washed out!)
And, last week I was working on LHN's Traveling Stitcher - I can stitch on this one without a magnifier or light, so it's easier to travel with! (We'll take a better picture of this one next time too!)
That's it for tonight. Thanks again for stopping by!
