A close up of one of these. the cottage garden threads are great for picking up the colors of the fabrics.
And while talking of swaps, I've shown the you the gorgeous gifts I received from Jo in Cheryll's Christmas in July swap, but I havn't shown you what I made. My partner was Lyn from Queensland -
First off was this wallhanging which is a design from The Birdhouse and one I have stitched several times and I still enjoy it.
I also made Lyn some of my favourite decorations - and of course they are Michelle's designs from Ragtag Stitchin.
And lastly I have been stitching, stitching, stitching on the centre block from Natures Journey, a Hatched and Patched design which lots of us are stitching away on as a SAL over on Chooky's blog. It has taken a while as my needleturn is very slow, but must say I'm happy with it. And a big thankyou to Shez who sat there for ages and cut out all the templates for me (I use the template plastic method) -
