I heard from Aniza this morning that she received my Specific Designer (Little House Needleworks) Exchange. I am happy to hear it arrived safely in Malaysia! I had/have low confidence with this one. I was so loving the stitching on this one, and then when it was time to put my mattress together, the fusible interfacing on the long side strip fell out 3/4 of the way around.. sigh... I had to use a soft side and I don't care much for that. Then I realized that using #8 perle cotton for the whipstitching was not a great idea - a bit bulky. But all of that aside, the last straw was that the pincushion has an area of bunching up at the seam at the bottom that I have never, never, never seen or have had happen before. I was beside myself! Aniza, however, tells me there are no worries! I am showing the photo she has in her blog - it is much better than the one I took before I mailed it off to her... it shows everything I sent her too.
And, I spent some TV/wind down time with my stitching for a little while tonight... back to Serenity. I figured I would work on that busy leaf border little by little rather than take it all on at once in the end... as you can see by today's photo.
I am thankful for all of my stitching friends :-)
