This month I was lucky enough to recieve this beautiful exchange. I have been participating in Lainey's Stitched With Love Exchanges for a couple of years now and I have loved stitching up a surprise for someone and packing it with other stitchy goodness. I talked my stitching twin into signing up to participate and guess what?? She got my name in the anonymous draw. I ranted and raved to her about my package while she sat humblely and waited until the reveal to tell me it was from her. Carol you are a gem. Thank you for this wonderful package that really suited me. I can officially say I have somenthing stitched by Carol. Here is a closeup of the thread keep and scissor fob she stitched for me. Simply AWESOME. You can visit Carol at Stitching and Stashing.
Below is a picture of the package I put together for my partner, Karen. She stated that her favorite color is red so I built my surprise from there. I found some wonderfully cheerful cherry fabric and went with a red, black and white theme. I got word from her that she was thrilled with her package and that made me smile. I always worry how a package will be received and can breath a sigh of relief once I hear from the recipient. I stitched a small piece by Shakespeares Peddler titled Patience and framed it in the most adorable little black frame that is hung by ribbon. This exchange was lots of fun and I look forward to the next one. I have been stitching away at it and look forward to mailing it out.
Thanks for stopping by. Your comments me alot and encourage me to continue doing what I love. Stitching and sharing!! Happy Stitching!
