TTE2 Exchanges

I participated in a pincushion exchange with Tiny Treasures II and received a lovely pincushion from Andrea.  The fabric has been infused with red wine and the stitching was done in white thread. It’s gorgeous 🙂

Thank you so much, Andrea – I adore it 🙂 It has a prominent place in my stitching room.

My partner to stitch and send a pincushion to was Liz (no blog) and this is what I made for her

Winter has just begun in our neck of the woods, though you couldn’t tell by the weather over the last few days. We’ve enjoyed a beautiful weekend and I’ve been pottering about in the garden. I’ll leave you with the last blooms of my fuschias.

Happy Stitching 😉

    Both pincushions are lovely, will have to try the red wine infusion myself some day.
    I’d love some winter weather, but that seems rather unlikely
