By the Sea exchange

My partner in the HOE By the Sea exchange was Faye, and here is the pinkeep I made her. As soon as this exchange was announced I knew what I wanted to stitch, so I waited impatiently for my partner's details to see if this design would be OK to make for them. And thankfully Faye liked it. I stitched it on some fabric by Polstitches, which came from a grab bag.

The design is taken from Sirens by the Sea sampler by Just Nan. I shall look forward to stitching the whole thing for myself. I still need to photograph the exchange I received from Erin, and wait while you see it, it's beautiful. I just need to clear some memory in my camera so that I can get a pic for you.

Summer House Exchange again

Here is the wonderful exchange I received from WendyJo, I had trouble including this picture in my previous post, it was just not happy there. So here we are, it now has it's own post. Thank you WendyJo, I love my little hanging pillow, now happily hung on my stitching lamp. And for those interested in the kitchen (Patti), this pillow is pictured on my new worktop.

Summer House Exchange

I was extremely late in posting my Summer House exchange to Ina R (no blog), but I've seen on the HOE blog that she's received it. This was a 'no extras' exchange, but I included some by way of an apology. I used a vintage blue linen, and finished it into a cube finish. This is a free design by Maryse.
