Two Recent Exchanges

I've been busy stitching and finishing some exchanges and now I can finally share them with you.

The first one was given to Nancy K. for the "And A Forest Grew" exchange on the USEBB. I really fell in love with this design from Cross Country Stitching magazine and I knew that Nancy was a fan of primitive designs. I really enjoyed stitching this one and my daughter came up with the novel idea of using twisted paper and raffia as the edging materials.

The second exchange that I made was for Chris
for the "Freebie " exchange on the SBEBB. I chose to stitch Little House Needleworks Garden Gameboard. I made it into a tote bag. This was a challenging and time consuming project and I'm proud of how it turned out.

Thanks for reading my blog, and please know that I really appreciate your comments.

Introducing The Amish Couple from France

My wonderful friend Arcadia is an exquisite doll maker. When I found an old book of patterns for Amish/Appalachian dolls I knew it would be something she would make use of. Well, you can see for yourself that she went to work creating this lovely couple. They arrived in the mail a couple of weeks ago and have found a new home in my bedroom.
