Life is slowly trying to settle into a pattern again, although a few deadlines and tasks are still on the horizon (but that is just a case of life).
So I am going to post few things. 1st up is a Margaret Sherry exchange I have participated in last summer ...
Check out Summer Exchange Flashback for all involved.
You have seen what I received from Marcinha in my earlier post click here:
I am now using it to store all the threads from the QS Literate Dragon SAL. Very useful and pretty.
But I haven't posted what I sent to the next person in the list...
It is a box with Margaret Sherry's design 'June cat & mouse' from Margaret Sherry 2012 Stitcher's Diary, a free gift with the World of Cross Stitching magazine issue 185.
And now back onto recent issues. I have recently for Valentine's had an exchange of stitched cards with McKenna of Chic Crafting. And this is the lovely card I have received in the post from her:
The colour is very close to purple ... which is great as it is my favourite colour. The card I sent to America for this exchange is:
The stitched cup is from the set designed by Rhona Norrie 'Coffee Cards'. She frequently appears in the stitchy magazines, and I especially like her quick and quirky designs. Check out Rhona's blog Tangled Threads by clicking here. I changed the colours a little (to be a little creative and use leftovers): Anchor: 370, 360, 304, 302; DMC: blanc, 818. The 370 and 360 was also used for backstitching.
And for consistentcy I'll also post the one other Valentine's card I stitched this year:
Also from the same set designed by Rhona. This time I used the following threads... Anchor: 233, 360, 370, 316, 850, 158, 77, 304, 851; and DMC: blanc, 3688. The backstitching used 233, 360, 370 (already listed).
Till another successful update lets hope,
P.S. Promise to be better at responding.
