In March, I participated in a Stitched with Love Exchange hosted by Lainey. It was spring themed and I received the most wonderful package from Lei. She stitched an adorable pillow and quilted a beautiful little spring bird. I especially loved the kite pin cushion. She also sent some wonderful finishing supplies and a couple of charts. Thank you so much Lei. My package certainly brightened my day and brought a little bit of springtime my way.
My partner was Renee. I tried something new. I made her a button box. The design is a freebie from Ink Circles. I used GAST and Belfast linen in Mocha. I painted a paper mache box with brown paint and mahogany Briwax. I then lined the box with pink paper to co-ordinate with the stitching. I enclosed some other little stitching goodies that I hope she enjoyed.
Last week tragedy hit Boston and I know this is not news to anyone. I wanted to thank my friends and followers for the concerned emails and want everyone to know that my friends and family are safe. We were away when this happened and it was difficult not being able to connect. I am happy that they have captured a surviving suspect so that some questions can be answered. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their families. Boston Strong!
