Summer Quaker Exchange


Look what I received from Vonna, she stitched me this gorgeous pinkeep, all stitched over one. It's stitched using an Anchor mulit coloured thread in shades of pink, orange and yellow- very summery. This was for the SBEBB Summer Quaker exchange. Vonna included Carrie's Creation threads and some Piecemakers needles, she must have known I've wanted to try these for sometime, having heard people rave about them.


And here's the photo's of the exchange package I sent to Carol. I decided on the free pattern from The Workbasket, it's called Summer Quaker Flower. I just stitched the centre of the flower, in a lovely yellow and white Needle Necessities overdyed floss. I stitched our initials on the back, I then made a tassel from some Anchor Perle thread in shades of yellow and green. I finished it off as scissor fob, this was the first time I've used ribbon and beads, I usually make a cord, but the ribbon matched so well. Then when I looked at Carol's blog, I realised that she makes' lots of fobs, so was unsure whether this was right for her or not. I include some 32ct Sunburst Gold Belfast linen, a skein of thread, a notebook, and added a handmade card that looked summery.
Thank you everyone for all your comments on my previous postings, they are much appreciated. I think I'm back on the net with few problems-fingers crossed.

Good to see you back Chris. Hope you've got your connection sorted now.

The pinkeep you received from Vonna is gorgeous as is the fob you stitched for Caro.

I'm so glad you like it...I was worried that you wouldn't and I had started 3 different times all with different motifs before I finally just bit the bullet and finished this one :)

I love your exchange to Carol, it's perfect!
