Violet Cottage Finish
This weeks finish is Country Cottage/ Crescent Colours Violet Cottage, the second in my trio of cottages. Next, I move on to the last one which will be Peony Cottage.
I've also finished an exchange, but obviously can't share that with you yet, and I'm in the middle of a personal exchange with Clare. Now, I'd like to share some thoughts with you about exchanges. I like taking part in them, but I do worry about them, so much so that as each one finishes I think that's it I won't do any more. I'll explain. I worry about whether or not I can meet the requirments of the exchange, do I have enough charts, are my limited finishing skills good enough? I then worry about whether I'll have the right sort of charts for my recipients likes, for instance, I love floral designs and have a plethora of these, but so often I read that people don't like floral and if my partner is one of these what will I stitch? I worry about having the time to stitch, so I only take on one exchange at a time. I worry about the extras that I love to send, I want people to like them. I do have a wonderfully supportive husband who helps me choose and even supplies the funds for this. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH KEITH! That all done, when it's time to send the exchange off I worry about whether it will reach it's destination safely and haunt the appropriate exchange blog until I see a post from the recipient. I won't have any problems there though with the exchange with Clare as I'll be giving it to her myself when we meet up while I'm up in the Yorkshire Dales next month, and won't be having to rely on Royal Mail. Oh well, I guess I'm just a born worrier, I mean, is there anybody out there actually reading this? LOL
