Here's a close-up of the stitched piece - Rose Garden (without the border) by Blackbird Designs. I'm also showing you the backing fabric that I used for the pillow - loved it!
I received a lovely package of items from June (in the UK). The stitched pillow is done with wonderful soft greens, corals and more and sits proudly on my mantel now. One of the exciting things about exchanging with someone from another country is that you may receive items that you can't even find in the U.S.! June's package included some lovely embellishments and fabrics - none of which I'd even seen in the various supply "haunts" that I frequent.
I've signed up the the "Fall into Halloween" exchange, where participants could choose to receive Halloween-themed or autumn-themed items. I've been doing some stitching in both of these themes and am looking forward to learning about my exchange partner next week. Fun, fun, fun!!!!
Back to my project bag - there's still a little time to take up my needle and sew before bed. Enjoy!
