More Fair Squares!

Last week I received my Fair Squares from NadiaB  in the Netherlands. She stitched me a great design from a Belgian stitching magazine called Handwerken, dated Nov 1968. Amazing! The design is as contemporary today as I’m sure it was then – see for yourself…

 Did you notice the matching fob she added to the squares? Cute! Thank you so much, Nadia for adding to my collection with a beautiful and important reminder of the needlecraft heritage that we share today.

I also finished another set of fair squares I received from Linda B(no blog) in Round 11. This is a really striking quaker design stitched in quaker colours. I’ve finished it very simply to reflect this, and love, loove it. Thank you once again, Linda.

 More and more Christmas stitching is popping up on stitchers’ blogs.  A hint that I need to get a wriggle on if I want anything finished to display at home over the holiday season! I’ve selected a couple which I’ll show you next post. Until then,

Happy Stitching 😉

    I always look at your blog and loved seeing what you’ve done with your exchange squares – gives me such inspiration to do some finishing!!! I am especially pleased to see how you’ve finished the Quaker squares I did for you – your finishing is wonderful and you brought out the beauty of the simple colors. I hope this is the start of many more Quaker squares for your basket.

    I love the trim that you used to finish off the squares from Linda B, it really suits the finish that you chose.
    Huge congratulations to your daughter on her graduation.
