This time I also remembered to take a photo of the entire exchange before I packed it up. I sent bits of this and that, in hopes that some items would appeal to Nancy - she says I did very well with that - phew! I sent her hand dyed fabric by Sugar Maple Fabrics, a pair of Gingher stork scissors (classic design, seemed to suit the love of needlework theme for this exchange), a small kit by Victoria Sampler that will make a pretty pinkeep/pincushion/sachet(?), some pretty cotton fabric for finishing, an autumnal candle tart, and a copy of the chart (it is an old freebie, and I figured she would enjoy it). I am glad this exchange worked out well for Nancy :-)
Dawn was back out again tonight. Thanks for all of the wonderful comments about her. She truly is a beauty, and I am so happy that several of you are saying you feel inspired to stitch her! Tonight I finished the bottom half of her wing on the right side (except for some backstitching...), added a bit to other parts of her wings, and gave her the outline of her face/facial features and her arms. She is coming to life now! There is still quite a ways to go with her, though.
Oh.... and wait until you see! I received an amazing package from a wonderful stitcher today! It was already dark out (and rainy) when I got home today, so I will take a nice daylight photo of it tomorrow and share it with you then - this is something special, and I cannot wait to show you!
