SBEBB BlackBird Designs for Hazel



I heard from Hazel that she received the BBD's exchange piece I stitched for her. Goodies were also sent, but guess I forgot to get a photo. I included a Kelmscott needleminder, some lotion, and pins. Hazel has a great photo of the entire exchange on her blog. The stitched piece is a portion of Pins and Tulips from Thank You Sarah Tobias. I made a small change by stitching the initials of our first names in a different color floss.

Finally after all these years of stitching and finishing, I believe I am getting the hang of doing a pillow finish. Hazel said she couldn't see where I stuffed it. (Hint, I stuffed from the top.)

I've been busy stitching on the HoE Valentine Exchange. The stitching is complete. I'm pushing the wire on this exchange. I'll have it in the mail tomorrow. Today I took my mom's van to be serviced in Tulsa. While I was waiting I finished one of The Sampler Girl's charts. Right now the name escapes me, but i know it has the words Thanksgiving and Plimoth in it. I plan to finish it into a pillow so will post a photo when I do.

Enjoy your evening.

I saw this pillow on Hazel's blog and fell in love with it. You chose perfect fabric for the back as well. How do you stuff your pillow so it dosen't look lumpy?

I love this little pillow, it's one of my favourites and my fingers are itching to stitch it. You seem to be stitching up a storm these days. Enjoy all your stitching hours.
