First of all, I got a wonderful package yesterday in the mail from Sesselja for the Redwork exchange in Allt í Kross (my Icelandic stitching group). She sent me a cute scissor fob and I really like it :o)
Thank you Sesselja!
And I went today durring my lunch hour and bought fabric for the finishing part of the Redwork Exchange. I couldn’t decide what I wanted so I bought different fabrics that will come in handy for future finishing adventures. The background is the linen I used for the stitching. Aren’t they pretty?
Today’s SBQ was suggested by Ish and is:
How do you choose a project for an exchange? Do you pick solely on what you know of the taste of the recipient or are there other reasons you pick the piece you do?
I try to pick something that I know that the recipient will like and that I know I will enjoy stitching and making for them. I usually have a hard time picking out what I want to do because I always want to make so many things! LOL! But I have been quite happy with what I have made so far for exchanges and hope that the recipients have enjoyed my stitching also.
