I got an e-mail from Emily in Australia informing me that she got the exchange I sent her for the Fall themed exchange in the LJ Exchange Community. And she says she loves it and I am so glad that she does. I had a lot of fun making this one and am sure that I will make this again at some point.
I made her a scissor pocket. Design by The Cat’s Whisker called Alyssum Scissor Pocket. I used one of the new DMC Variatons floss but I can’t tell you which one since I lost the little paper piece from the skein. It is stitched on 32ct Vintage Pear Linen from Silkweavers. I included scissors and also sent some charms and buttons, Vicki Clayton silks, a piece of Chocolate colored evenweave and some ribbon.I am glad you like your exchange Emily! Enjoy!
I started working again yesterday after my 2 weeks on vacation. Things are very busy but I will be back soon with more updates. I am working on the Grateful Hearts exchange for the SBEBB and I am in love with what I am stitching. I just hope the finishing will go smoothly also. I am also working on a couple of biscornus for Brenda.
Oh, one more thing. Is anyone doing the new Mystery Sampler from Papillion Creations featured in The Gift Of Stitching Magazine? I can’t decide if I am going to do it or not. I really want to splurge on the Dinky Dye’s silks for this project, but I can’t afford it until who knows when I want to do it on 40ct Linen I think. I also want to do the smalls chatelaine. So many projects, so little time!
And I ordered the JCS ornament 2007 issue yesterday! This is probably the magazine that I anticipate the most. I just love it. Have you ordered your copy yet? Are you going to?
