More exchanges!

Hi everyone, I have been doing quite a few exchanges lately, here is the one I sent to Hazel from the
Quietly Stitching blog this week. (The exchange I received from Hazel is shown below) I made the box and covered it with this beautiful fabric from Shabby Fabrics in America, I also made the pinkeeps and little pillow using free patterns from: 

Gazette 94 for the rose pattern, please see previous post for the link to this pattern. 
Amitie pattern is from DesFilles et une Aiguille here
I made the polymer clay roses and the buttons from polymer clay.

Hazel sent me the most gorgeous stitching set below, I am thrilled with it. Hazel made the gorgeous bag and filled it with the lovely matching needlebook and little scissor pillow.
Thanyou Hazel, I shall treasure them always.

Thankyou for all of the lovely comments, I really appreciate them.
Happy stitching!

My exchange has arrived in Russia at last!

Hi everyone, I am thrilled to say that the exchange I sent to Yana in Russia on the 29 March has finally arrived, I had actually lost all hope of it ever getting there, in fact, I had made another one and was ready to post it next week! 

I made the  toblerone using this tutorial here ,although it is in French the pictures are quite easy to follow, I also used some of the fabrics I bought from Shabby Fabrics in America. The cherub pattern was a free pattern from Arianne Pierre, I could not find the link to it, however a nice blogging friend sent me the pattern. For the rose detail on the toblerone I used part of a pattern from the Gazette 94 blog here, just scroll down and you will see the roses as part of this large sampler.

The polymer clay rose pins, buttons and thread holder were handmade from Fimo clay and glazed with varnish to give a shiny finish. If you wish to know how to make the roses just type in polymer clay roses on You Tube and you will see a video showing how to make them. 
I used DMC floss for the cross stitch. 

More pictures below.




I have just sent another exchnage to Hazel from Quietly Stitching blog here , I will show pictures in my next post.

Happy stitching everyone and thankyou for your visit.
