Garden Exchange for Chris H.

Great news today! I did not realize that Europe had postal holidays last week, and I was getting worried about this exchange... thanks Ann, for the heads up! Chris has let me know that she received my SBEBB Garden Exchange for her today...
Cottage Garden Mattress Pincushion

Country Cottage Needleworks

Just Cross Stitch Magazine, August 2006

32 ct Antique White Belfast Linen, Crescent Colours, WDW and DMC Floss

Stitched 1-over-1


...and I found I had a photo of the rest of the goodies I sent to her... Chris sent me the sweetest email - I am glad you like it, enjoy Chris!

Stitched on today: Finished a gift, and started a PIF

Gorgeous! I have yet to try a mattress pincushion finish. Mostly because I don't know how to approach it. Does someone have a tutorial out there, that you know of?

Very cute, Carol - I'm glad that it arrived safely (finally!).
