Another exchange arrives


Design: Breast Cancer Awareness
Designer: Cosmic Handmade
36ct white linen with DMC threads


Here's my exchange piece for Jill for the beCAUSE it's Pink exchange. As you can see the design I chose to stitch is the same as the one I received- what a coincidence. (not sure why the picture isn't sharp on here, it looked fine before I uploaded it) I tried to peek in Jill's pink basket that she has on her blog to see if she already had this design. (Jill assures me she didn't have this one) And here's the extras I sent.



I'm thinking of buying some of these silicone cup cake moulds for myself, as I've seen those cute stitched buns that people have been making. Although I expect they'd end up being used for baking.

I always have trouble in deciding what extras to add. The only stitching related items in this package are beads and some ribbon, but I would have been happy to receive this package. Because the stitching items here in the UK are generally twice the price they are in the US, and the US has so much more choice, I feel it's a bit like sending coals to Newcastle - although I know that a stitcher can never have too much stash. What do you all think?

I love your Stitch Pink choices. The stitching is gorgeous. The silicone cups are awesome. I think you did a marvelous job of putting it all together.

Lovely exchange Chris, how funny that you both chose to stitch the same design

You could go for some UK hand-dyed threads.

I would love to receive a package like that!

Thank you for showing this BC awareness piece. I got a copy of the chart from the website and will be stitching it for my daughter. She's a 3+ year survivor!
