And here you can see the wonderful exchange I received from Amy. Isn't it gorgeous. I chose Winter as my season, and Amy made me this wonderful pinkeep. The design is by Erica Michaeals. Amy also included a skein of hand dyed silk, such a pretty colour, and a skein of Caron Watercolors, this is in a very bluey white, but the camera just doesn't pick the colour up, and a nice notebook. Such a lovely exchange.

My First Flat Fold
Here's a few pics of my first ever flat fold. I stitched it for Vonna, in the SBEBB Seasonal House exchange. Vonna chose Autumn, so I decided to stitch LHN Season of Plenty. I was really pleased with how it turned out. I added some beads on ribbon on the corner to finish it off, a bow didn't really seem to look right. I'd finished the edge of the pinkeep with ribbon as I was unable to find anything else that was ther right colour. I included some 32ct Belfast, a fat quarter of finishing fabric, and a hand dyed skein, trying to keep to Autumnal colours.
