My other two RAK's have now arrived at their destination so I can share them with you all. This little bluebird pillow was for the lovely Nataly. She loves primitive designs and blue colours so I;m delighted to say that she was very happy with her surprise gift.
My second RAK was for another lovely stitching friend Pam. The little pincushion was part of a Raisetheroof design. Pam was also delighted with her gift.
Both Nataly and Pam have been great supporters of my Exchange group. The group has been a great success. Our next Exchange is going to be split into two. As this is a big year off celebration in the UK with the Queens Diamond Jubilee and hosting the Olympic games there is going to be a British themed exchange for the UK ladies and running along side will be a Patriotic themed exchange for the other overseas girls. If you would like to come join in the fun check out the Stitchedwithlove Exchange link on the right hand side of my blog. I will be posting the details over the week-end.
These two teenies are my SAL ornaments. My snowflake from Prairie Schooler was stitched using krenik braid it should have been finished in April but I misplaced my thread. My May gingerbread man was a lovely freebie I found at xstitchhappy.
Okay ladies I would like some advice please. A family friend asked me to make a Wedding present for her. After showing her a selection off charts she is down to two. The other one I can;t show you as its the chart that I actually stitched for her and hubbys Silver Wedding many years ago. The design was from an old UK mag and the lady still has the magazine. This one is Wedding Spots by The Trilogy. My dilemma is the wedding colours are black and white. I;m not keen on the greyish thread colours in this one and the lady doesn;t like the colour of the fabric. I think black and white could be quite striking but what colour off fabric would you stitch it on? It;s also very difficult to get a square shaped frame. Do you think it would be okay if I didn;t stitch the border and made it into an ornament hanging with seed beads around the edge. HELP!
I hope everyone is having a lovely week-end and your stitches are many. Hugs!
