Thanksgiving Exchange for Heather

Heather has received the Thanksgiving Exchange that I put together for her...

Joyful Thanksgiving Pinkeep

Shepherd's Bush

32 ct Raw Belfast Linen, DMC and ThreadWorx Floss


I know that Heather likes quilting, so I also sent her a chart for a city bag with all of the necessary fabric, along with a little chart and some floss. I have never stitched for Heather for an exchange before, so this was a treat! Happy Thanksgiving, Heather :-)

Today was fun - I took classes at the Celebration of Needlework Fall Event in Nashua, NH. The first class was with Cynthia Zittel of The Drawn Thread, followed by a class with Catherine Strickler of Indigo Rose. I will post project pictures tomorrow... both classes were excellent.

Stitched on today: Started Persian Pocket in Cynthia Zittel's class, and started Appalachian Rose in Catherine Strickler's class

What a beautiful exchange, your stitched piece is lovely, and all the colors look awesome as a set. Glad you're having a good time at the festival, looking forward to seeing what you're working on.

Your Hello Neighbor RR in your earlier post was gorgeous, how exciting to have gotten it back in the mail. It must have been so hard to wait while it did its rounds.
