What's the Buzz exchange from me




Well, I saw that Chris had received the exchange last week, so I thought I'd share some pictures. As usual, it took me a long time to decide on which pattern to use, and then I came across this one. I've had this for a while, and always intended stitching it for myself. It's by Jo Verso, and I found it in an old magazine. I enjoyed stitching it so much, I stitched it a second time for myself. I hope Chris liked it. As you can see I made them in to pinkeeps. I used Caron Watercolour threads to make the cord around the edge, and mine has a slightly darker shade of green for the cord, as that went better with the colour of the pins I used on mine. The fabric is by Polstitches.


I know I've been quite in the last week, but I have been stitching, I stitched and made up a Christmas ornament for a friend. I've not decided whether to put it on my blog yet, as I'm not sure whether my friend reads it, and I don't want to spoil the surprise. It's by Elizabeth's Designs, and was in 2001 JCS Christmas ornament mag.
