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.

Hi Julianne !
I have a bunch of troubles with my email, well, it's french LOL. I Hope I can keep in touch with you posting a comment, I can read your emails perfectly, but can't answer, argh.... Today + tomorrow, I'll spend the day at the hospital, for more and more tests (!), I hope I'll be there all week-end long to see what's wrong with my email & hopefully repair it. Be sure the bunny on carrot is for you ;-)
