A final June post!

As I am at home today I thought I would try and squeeze in a post before June turns too July. The only stitching I have been doing this month are Exchange pieces that I can;t show yet.  As I am so busy chasing my tail though I do have gifts and exchanges to show  that I was working on many months ago. 




This was a very belated Birthday gift for my friend Catherine  I was going to stitching something else for her but when I kept seeing all those lovely "Pooh" quotes on her blog I just had to do this. Just like Pooh Catherine is the best kind of friend. Even though she is a busy Mum with her beautiful family she;s always been there for me and my family. Thank you for being my friend Catherine.



Another special lady that has a heart of gold is June  She has been there to support me through my family troubles and a great help when I was struggling to keep my Exchange group open. Thank you my dear friend. It always brightens my day when I visit June's blog. Her stitching pieces and beautiful garden are a treat. I loved stitching this pillow for June's Birthday. I made it up from Natures Alphabet by Elizabeth's Designs. I was so happy with how it turned out.



This sweet little Shepherds Bush pillow I made as a get well gift for Sally who has been recovering from a recent operation. She is another special friend who even though has had her own ups and downs to deal with she always finds time to listen to my moans and give me her love and support. Thank you my dear friend.


The theme in our last exchange on  Stitchedwithlove  was "My favourite Things". I received this wonderful package from Karen She really put so much thought into my favourites. My "Fine Fleeced Flannigan" and "Snowman" pillow are just adorable. Fabric, threads, cute notebook and snowman chart all so me. Thank you so much Karen.



My partner to send too was Gaby. She loves Garden themes and Shepherds Bush is one of her favourite designers. I adapted this design to the colours I had in my stash. Another enjoyable stitch and probably one of those charts I will do again.
Stitchedwithlove is now having a Tea-party in the Garden. In this exchange you get to choose whether you would like to receive a tea-party or garden themed package. Sign-ups are open too Tuesday. Details on the blog.

Finally I will leave you with some photos of the plants in my garden. I took most of these pictures a few weeks ago when we had at least one dry day. The weather for June has been just awful and my heart goes out to those people in England whose homes have been flooded. I just can;t imagine what a heartbreaking experience this must be. Fingers crossed July will bring us those warm summer days we are all longing for.









Have a nice week-end. Happy stitching.
Hugs
Lainey

Must be fun to open the mail at your house!

I'm finally catching up on some overdue blog reading. Thanks again, Lainey, for my gift. I absolutely love it and will treasure it always! Your other gifts and exchange goodies look wonderful as well ~ you sure spread the smiles around!
Great garden photos ~ my garden is very weedy and dry. Ugh! The product of so much baseball and not enough rain.
Hope you and your family are doing well ~ sending many hugs and prayers!

belle said...

Beautiful stitching and gorgeous flower photos.

Stitchesbyme said...

such beautiful stitches, and gorgeous pictures

Brigitte said...

Oh Lainey, this post is just wonderful. I love love love the three stitched gifts you made for some lucky ladies out there. Your finishing is just adorable and I'm sure the ladies were over the moon with their presents.

Crazee4books said...

Hi Elaine,

Followed the comment link from my blog
to yours and have been thoroughly
enjoying myself here. So much to see
and to admire.

From the Pooh bear bag for Catherine
(and really, who doesn't love Pooh??)
to that awfully sweet pillow trimmed
in lace for June and finally the SB pillow
in luscious bright colours plus a long
legged sheep (??) for Sally ... what
wonderful, thoughtful gifts your needle
has created for your lucky friends.

And you've received some fabulous
stuff in return. I adore Fine Fleeced
Flannigan!!! That's some spiffy sheep!
and the little snowman pillow is so
cute. I love that style of finishing
where you can see both the stitching
and the pretty finishing fabric at once.
Wonderful exchange from generous
and talented Karen.

And finally there's the exchange that
you sent to Gaby. How beautiful that
hanging ornament is with all the
pretty, dainty flowers. You've made
something very special there.

Loved seeing your garden. I'm jealous
over your Lupins. Mine leafed out but
didn't produce any flower spikes which
is a big disappointment. I think it
might want more sun then what it's
getting where I planted it. Oh well.

Cheers!!

Sorry I am late in reading this. I am way behind with reading blogs.

What gorgeous exchanges you have been in. There are some lovely stitched pieces in them but I think my favourite has to be the June pillow. I just really love the colours of it.

I am extremely jealous of your garden. Ours is nothing like it should be with the constant rain and lack of sunshine.

Annie said...

Hi

Just found your blog.
I love the WTP bag it's so sweet.
Your exchanges were lovely!
Gorgeous flowers too.

Parsley said...

Love the goodies shown.
