Here is a fun exchange….

For those who don’t know – I also love playing with paper (and glass and books and and and.. that you can see on my blog My Flat Self ) and a few weeks ago Cindy came up with this fun idea to host a group; ATC Stitching Bloggers Birthday Exchange, that will exchange stitched ATC’s. For those who don’t know ATC = Artist Trading Card - take a peek at some examples here if you are interested. Here is my first card (1 of 9) I have stitched and made for Janet in Malaysia for her birthday!

Blackbird Design Exchange for Wendy Jo

I have stitched this lovely little design and finished it in a needle book for Wendy Jo as part of a small stitching group; Friends Through Threads. I have stitched the design on 30 ct. off white Irish linen one over two. I have changed the colours to suit the finishing material of the needle book and think it turned out nicely. I have also made some butterfly pins for the needle book and a small little glass pendant for Wendy Jo.
Have a wonderfull day dear stitching friends!

Black Bird Design exchange from Marie.

I have joined a small but wonderful group of ladies that shares their love for stitching and I received this wonderful exchange from Marie (please visit her blog here to view her lovely stitching). She stitched this beautiful Black Bird Design pattern in the most gorgeous colours and finished it a floss tag with beautiful berry fabric. She also spoiled me with lots of stitching goodies; wonderful silk ribbon and two lovely patterns that I can’t wait to stitch.
