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.
