Thankyou so much everyone for entering my giveaway, I do hope you will continue to visit my blog.
Please don't be disappointed if you did not win, I have entered lots of blog giveaways and I have not won anything, ever, maybe one day I will be lucky!

 Stitching news

I have not done much stitching but I have an  exchange to show you, this is the one I made for Staci at 
I also have another one to show but I will show that on my next post.

I made this pinkeep with a ladybird design on the back,I then decided to use the fabric as a theme to base my design on. The little bottlecap pincushion is supposed to be a ladybird, this was based on the little bottlecap pincushions that Jenny Segrest makes here  

I decided to just embroider mine with the little daisy pattern to match the pinkeep.

The needlebook is my own design made from felt and blanket stitched around the edge. 

The alphabet is a free design, I can't remember where I got the grid from for the cross stitch, but if anyone would like a copy please leave a comment with your email address and I will send it to you.   

Here is the lovely exchange that Staci made for me. 
Staci made the two lovely pillows and stuffed them with crushed walnuts, I thought this was a lovely idea. I particularly liked the way that Staci trimmed the reverse side of the pillows. Also included were the threads that Staci used in stitching the design and the buttons ribbons and thread will certainly be useful for my forthcoming projects

Thankyou Staci, I enjoyed our exchange, I shall treasure these gifts and I will put them in my new craft room when it is finishesd! 

Happy stitching everyone, until next time!

What a lovely exchange Lynn. The ladybird theme is really pretty and Staci's little redwork pillows are beautifully stitched. Lots of very useful extra gifts too.

Hello Lynn.....I just came across your blogspot today and have enjoyed viewing all the wonderful projects you have completed...I, too, have enjoyed doing cross-stitch for many years and find it a wonderful outlet in so many ways....I would greatly appreciate your taking the time to send me the alphabet that you have so kindly offered to is perfect for the cover of a needlecase and would help to solve the dilemma of what to do for Christmas presents this year....I thank you for your generosity...
Regards ... Laurel
