Redwork Exchange for Amy

I read on the USEBB that Amy received my Redwork Exchange for her today... so, since I am going to devote my stitching time tonight to my Quaker Alphabet Exchange, I will share this with you tonight (as always, I did not take a photo of the entire exchange, only the stitched item):

Thistle Square Needleroll

Periphaeria Designs

Riviera Natural/Burgundy Linen, DMC 814


Mike has some new needlework items for sale. If anyone is interested, he is now selling Q-Snaps. We have no idea yet what they will cost to ship, especially outside of the US. You can ask for them directly through me. I can get the prices from him. He has 6", 8", 11" and 17" sets. He also pre-ordered the new Gingher Bianca scissors and will have them later in September for you!! As well, his ebay store has fun Olfa rotary cutters, small crafting irons and such... You can see it all here - you can always buy direct and not through ebay, if you prefer. He is working on setting up his online store now.

You did an excellent job, madam! This redwork exchange is fabulous! I think it will be a while bfore I try my hand at something as complicated as a needlreroll, but when I do, I will know who to ask for advice. I'm rather curious about Mike's online shop...

Beautiful needleroll! It's the first time I see anything by this designer. Lovely!
I sent you an email re the Q snaps.
Hope Mike is doing well with his sales.

Lelia said...

Wow! That is awesome -- what a beautiful NR : )

Go Mike. So, has he decided what YOUR discount will be??? LOL.

Did you figure out what the thread skipper is? What it is used for? I've never heard of it before.

btw, has Mike checked out the 'stuff' on the "In the Company of Stitchers" goodies??? They have interesting items displayed on their site.
