The second thing I'm showing you is the very lovely fob stitched for me by Cheryl. I was lucky enough to be drawn as one of Cheryl's winners in her Blogiversary draw. The design is taken from an LHN chart. Thank you so much Cheryl it's really sweet.
In exchange news, my needle roll for the HoE exchange is now finished and just needs packing up along with the extras that I'm sending and then it can go off to it's recipient. The Prairie Schooler exchange piece is complete too, and just needs finishing off, but I'm way ahead of the posting date with that. I have started off my personal exchange piece for Clare, which will be exchanged when we meet up again in The Dales while I'm on holiday there in October. The Fair and Square round 9 sign up has closed and I'll receive my partners details by the end of the week, but I'm going to start looking out some likely desings now. After all that is completed I'm going to cut down a bit on exchanges in order to concentrate a bit more on my own stitching. Yesterday I received some 36ct Edinburgh linen for my Derwentwater Yorkshire village. I bought it as a kit a few years ago and it came with 18ct Aida. I did make a small start on it but really do not enjoy working on this fabric any more. I've been promising myself the linen for it for ages, and now that I have it I can finally re-start it.
Thanks for reading my blog, and a special thank you to those of you who took the time to leave a comment.
