Summer Quaker received by Nic W.




I just read on the HoE site that Nic W. has received her Summer Quaker from me. I stitched her a floss tag over one using an overdyed #12 perle cotton. The effect of using the perle was interesting. Nic says she likes it, and I'm very happy she does. These little floss tags are so much fun to do. Here's a photo of the entire exchange. One note, there's a one brownish stitch that causes the design to look a little askew. It's not a mistake and I should have redone that row. Sometimes I'm a lazy stitcher, what can I say. I also include some really summery looking spring clips, a LHN chart, some super strong magnets and three strands of DMC floss in colors you always need.

What a lovely exchange you made, and your earlier post of your BBD piece is so pretty too. I'm glad that it is a count that is easier for you to work on while you wait for your replacement glasses.

Hi Becky. Glad to see your quaker exchange arrived; mine seems to be taking a slow boat!

Those floss tags sure are popular, I haven't tried to make one, but will give in and give it a go soon.

Hope you are having a nice weekend!
