Winter Stitched With Love Exchange

 
Last month I participated in the Cozy Winter Exchange hosted by Lainey on the Stitched with Love Exchange Blog.  I received the most delightful package from Lisa.  She sent me this cute winter themed pillow and a box of lovely goodies. I love the attention to detail on the pillow from the flower buttons to the ribbon and pin accenting the top.  Thanks Lisa!
 

The pictures below are what I sent to Lori. Some hot cocoa for those cold winter days and some stitching accessories. 

This is the piece I stitched for her.  It is called Old Man Winter from Val's Stuff. I used a purple linen because that is one of Lori's favorite colors. The fabric below the stitched piece is what I used to back the designs.  I chose threads to match the fabric and think they compliment each other quite well.  I then added a ruched ribbon trim.  I hope you liked it Lori!

 
I am currently working on the Spring Exchange for Stitched with Love and I am quite pleased with the results.  It involves lots of steps and I can't share any of it with you yet but I will soon.
What on your stitching agenda??  Are you working on a WIP or something new?  I would love to know!  Happy Stitching!

First, I love, love, LOVE the Old Man Winter pillow you sent your exchange partner. The lavender fabric you used really makes the piece a standout! I have to put Old Man Winter on my list of charts to buy - it's too cute. The pillow you received is also lovely.
