Here is a close up of the pinkeep she stitched for me. The cupcake looks just like the one on the mug she sent. It is a perfect match for my cup of tea and stitching.
I had Christina from the UK. Her blog is Whilst Iris Naps. I have been following her blog for a while and was happy to see I had her as my secret exchange partner. I was thinking picnic when I came up with this Watermelon themed gift. I hope she liked it.
This is a picture of the watermelon pincushion I made for her. The design is from SamSarah. I stitched it on Kudzu 30ct by WDW and used WDW Aztec red, Kris's Bon Bon and Green Apple. It was lots of fun to see it come together. The pins are made by Puntini Puntini which I picked up at ABC Stitch last year.
These are glass bead counting pins that I made for her. I wanted to have them match her pincushion and watermelon project. I hope to be making these to sell in the near future.
This is the whole package. I also included Down by The Bay by La D Da, 35ct linen, DMC floss, Sea Shell buttons and my favorite stork scissors.
I was also lucky enough to win this prize from Lisa. Lisa at Lisa's Stitching Life is a very talented quilter and stitcher and very generous. I can't wait to try these lovely fabric and fibers. The colors are delicious. THANK YOU Lisa! I have lots more to post but I am out of time. Until next time, Happy Stitching.
