At last, I've finally been able to get the pics of a recent exchange. Since changing to the new Blogger, I've not got the hang of getting a few pics where you want them. They display one way in preview mode, and a different way once published. Anyway, here they are. These are pics of the wonderful exchange I received from Barbara. The theme was Around the World, and the aim to stitch something relating to where you live . Barbara lives in Holland, and she sent me this wonderful mail art. My name and address were stitched over 1, and Barbara made it, so that once unpicked it made into a stitchers pocket. Don't you think it's great. Here's a picture of the inside.
And here's the photo's of what I sent to Judith. It took me ages to find a design that covered England, but I finally settled on this design by Mary Hickmott, and made it into a needlebook. As you can see I sent goodies relating to Yorkshire. I really enjoyed making the needlebook, and think I'll be making another for myself soon. I have lots of small stitched designs that I could use. Although I've made lots of needlebooks before, this was the first time I'd lined one with a cotton fabric.
