Stuff to share!

Yay! I received two lovely emails today, both letting me know that an exchange and a PIF have been received... so, here they are, stuff to share!

Nancy has received the SBEBB Feathered Friends exchange that I sent to her. I dug out an older freebie that I have been dying to stitch. It is hard to find photos of this one online, and the ones I did find were altered using brighter threads... I was anxious to see it as it is charted, and I have to say, I love it! I am glad Nancy likes it too!

... and the rest of the goodies I sent along for her - I hope she enjoys them too.

I also heard from Linda that she received my PIF for her as well - the rest of the goodies I sent her can be seen on her blog ;-) And as you can see, I clearly enjoy using Prairie Schooler's Garden Alphabet for fobs as much as I like Elizabeth's Designs' Nature's Alphabet ;-)

Your both pieces are just gorgeous. I like the pattern on the matrass pincushion, it looks so vintage. Great finishing on both pieces.

Some more lovely finishes - I especially like the mattress pincushion, I'm not brave enough to attempt that sort of finish!

Just gorgeous, love the Lilybet freebie, I wonder if I have that one in my freebie file (I lost track of them long ago!!) Beautifully stitched and finished. Love the Ladybird on the L fob, so cute.

I love both pieces! Did you use a tutorial for the mattress pincushion? Not sure I would know how to make that.

Brigitte said...

Both pieces look great, Carol. I particularly love the pincushion finishing. I have this freebie in my stash as well and have always wanted to stitch it but never did it. I think I will pull it out now after seeing yours stitched and finished.
