I recently had the pleasure of meeting a new stitchy friend in blogville. Pat has been following my blog and leaving lots of encouraging comments. We e-mail quite frequently and I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her better. We decided to do and exchange and look at the lovelies she sent me. Two beautiful pin cushions, some lovely scented hand lotion and hand sanitizer and this . . .
It is a beautiful lace ruffled scarf that she knit especially for me. My favorite color is blue and this picture just doesn't do it justice. It is so soft and comforting to wear. Thank you Pat for such a heartfelt exchange. You are very talented and I look forward to years of friendship.
Here is a picture of what I stitched for Pat. It is Spring Heart Hop by Island Cottage NeedleArts. I stitched it on 32ct Natural linen and switch some of the colors. Pat loves bunnies and the colors purple and lime green so I personalized it to her favorites. Below is a pic of the other goodies I enclosed. Everything in purples and greens. I even found a purple tomato pincushion, how cool is that. I really enjoyed our exchange and we plan to do another one in the fall. I am already on the hunt for the perfect design. Thanks again Pat.
Just wanted to remind you that if you missed my last post, I have a mystery giveaway going on in celebration of my blogiversary. You still have time, the draw is on June 1st. You must leave a comment on my previous post to be entered. Good luck to all who have already entered. Happy Stitching!
