Exchanges / Finishes / IHSW

Hello All

I can now show you my exchange received from Becka in the Rotating Designer Exchange.
Becka stitched me this lovely Prarie Schooler Santa - thank you so much Becka I can't wait to put it on my tree this year.



I sent a couple of my finishes to Karen's Finishing Service. First up my Tralala Due Noel. Karen finished this as a hanging pinkeep for me. I think it is gorgeous I am really pleased.



Next up is LHN Holly and Berries. Another stunning finish. Thank you Karen.



This is the back view.



Last up it was International Hermit and Stitch Weekend this weekend. Now I managed to take advantage of this as from Thursday as I was a very silly girl and twisted my ankle leaving my mum's house on Wednesday night. So I stitched all day Thursday, all day Friday and on Sunday and finished up the Travelling Pattern, Count your Blessings. I am going to leave this open until Wednesday 20th October as I have not been inundated with names. So if you do want enter please leave a comment on the post below. I think I will probably frame this one to go on my bedroom wall.



Thank you to all those that take the time to leave a comment, I really do appreciate it. Hello to all my new followers.

Until next time, happy stitching

Lesleyanne

Poor you! Tripping and hurting your ankle! At least you had a good reason to get in some stitching time while you rested though:) Love your Santa from Becka, and your ornaments are beautiful and so nicely finished by Karen too!

What a lovely santa you got Lesleyanne, and your two recently finished ornaments are really cute.
I love your "Count your Blessings" is it goint to be an ornament to? I can't wait to finish focusing on my current project so that I can start following the project until I get the chance to stitch it too :)
