Gifts / Exchanges

It was my stitching sister's, Angela,birthday at the end of September. I wanted to stitch a little something and knew she loved snowmen and so stitched her a little cushion using stitched on 28ct mushroom evenweave using crescent colours, Blue Moon or Blue Jeans, not sure which. The design is by Midnight Stitching called Snowman's Quaker Christmas. It was a lovely stitch and I am pleased to say Angela liked it.

Here is a picture of it plus a couple of other bits I sent as well. I borrowed the picture from Angela, hope you don't mind.

I was lucky to win Andie's giveaway and my prize arrived this week. I was totally blown away as everything is gorgeous. Thank you again Andie.

Lastly, I heard that my exhange partner in the Rotation Designer Exchange, has received my exchange. I am pleased to say she liked it.

Prarie Schooler Snowman from Holly Days chart booklet, I think. I backed it with the green gingham shown in the background.

I have nearly finished another gift that I am stitching and hoping to spend sometime this week with L*K ABC Halloween that hasn't been touched for a few weeks. I don't want to leave it although I am not sure I am going to get it finished in time for this Halloween but I have realised I have a few unfinished projects that I want to finish, probably next year now as I have a few things I need to stitch that will probably take up the rest of the year.

Until next time, happy stitching

Great stitching. I love both snowmen, but I do have a "thing" for them, so that isn't surprising - LOL. What is surprising is that I don't have either chart - that will change.

You really got some beautiful things in your winnings! Enjoy them.

What nice gifts for Angela, Lesleyanne--the tiny snowman done in blue is so sweet... And your other snowman is darling as well--I think gingham fabrics are my favorites for backing PS designs :)

The quaker snowman is adorable. I like how you changed the border to blue. I may have to borrow that idea ;-)
