Julianne's Spring Exchange

Here's the exchange piece I sent Julianne. It's a Prairie Schooler design from the leaflet "Farm Fresh".
It is stitched on 28ct lambswool with DMC threads.  It was hard to part with this one.  LOL. Julianne and I have done several private exchanges over the years.  We met through an exchange group that the name has escaped me.  It's always a treat to receive a piece from her.

Forgot to post


I just love this LHN girl and her shamrock bouquet.  St. Patrick's is a favorite of mine to stitch!  I stitched this for my cousin's birthday since she is a March baby.  I'm stitching one for me but won't get it done in March unless I hustle.  Hustling is really against my nature, so she'll be ready for next year!  MarieP, my corners are getting better thanks to your tutorial.

HOE Halloween Round 3 Received by Roberta

I saw where Roberta received my exchange piece .  I chose wicked by primitibebettys.  I love this design and wanted go stitch it.  Check out my corners.  They are definitely getting better.  MarieP' method is working for me. Now, I need to practice in those straight seams!  I have. Another finish, but can't show it until my recipient receives it.  I ordered LHN's March girl.  Since I like St. Patrick's Day, she's my next project.  Have a great day.

Latest finish

I found this stitched piece the other day when I was looking for who knows what.  I had completely  forgotten about it.  Got busy and made a hanging pillow to display.  It is, after all, March.  Can you believe it?  I'm still working on MarieP's corner technique. I believe I about have it figured out.  I'm using too much fiberfill to stitch at the corners.  I have an exchange piece to put together. Hopefully the corners will look better.  I do no remember the designer.  I will look for chart tomorrow. (It is Sew Irish by Istitch designs) If I find it I will edit it into the post.  Getting ready for another found of weather.  We will see if it happens.

HoE Exchange received

I receive this piece from Ellen in Singapore.  It is part of the HoE Christmas ornament exchange. This found was Stitcher's Choice.  She shoes LHN's Snoy Pines.  Ellen said she used a linen of unknown origins and DMV threads.  She does flawless stitching and finishing.  I love it, Ellen.  Thank you so much.

A Little Valentine on a Dreary Saturday

I made this little pillow this morning.  Perhaps one of these days I will be able to stitch a straight seam! I used the corner technique given to my by my friend MarieP.  It worked well, for me.  Now, I need to work on those seams.  The design is a freebie from The Sampler Girl, dated 2010.  Don't look to closely, there is one tiny mistake.  I was just too lazy to correct it!  Go Broncos.
