Exchange Stitching

I had not intended to be AWOL from this poor neglected blog for so long 😦 Life – work, study, cleaning, gardening, procrastination, tiredness – have all conspired against my stitching plans, I’m afraid.

I did manage to participate in the Stitching Between Friends Exchange (theme: birds & trees), for which my partner was Conny of Creative Basket. I’ll let the photos tell the story…

From Conny – Summer Splendour, LHN

From Conny – back of cushion

The design is so evocative of spring in Perth (just around the corner); a time of strawberries, singing birds and renewal. Thank you so much, Conny. I love it 🙂

This is what I stitched for Conny – blue is one of her favourite colours.

For Conny – SpiraLbre, Cargaudlabrico

Initials on back of ornament

Remember my Adam & Eve Sampler (Historic Sampler Company)? I have made a wee bit of progress, but that’s for another blog post.

Happy Stitching 😉

    Dear Pokua:

    I was so glad to get your latest update so that I could e-mail you and tell you what a lifesaver you have been.

    I have been stitching the Sara Hathorne and I don’t know what I would have done without your blog posting with the pictures of your Sara Hathorne—especially the close ups. The directions given in the brochure are a little sketchy and your gorgeous work has been such a help in figuring out all the stitches and arrangements.

    Thanks so much!!! I love the internet!!! By the way, I am in Northern California, about 45 minutes north and east of San Francisco.

    Hope all is well there Down Under.

    Thank you!!! Thank you!!! Thank you!!!
