HOE Exchange Received!

Oh, wow, did I ever get spoiled! I was really excited to see Tuula’s name on the return address portion of the lovely fat envelope that made its way through our mail slot yesterday – I’ve been admiring her stitching so knew that I had a treat in store :) And I was right! She stitched me this gorgeous red biscornu scissor fob, taking the design from a Papillon Designs freebie, and using a beautiful Atalie thread called ‘Rubis’. I absolutely love it – it is so me! I’ve immediately looped this on to my scissors, and even H has commented on how beautiful it is :)


Tuula was also kind enough to include a number of wonderful goodies for me – linen, backing fabric, threads, pins – all the sorts of things that, as she rightly pointed out in her note, stitchers can never have too much of.

Thursday was of course my Paradigm Lost SAL night, and here is two weeks’ worth of progress – I didn’t get much done either last week or this week (mainly this week because we went out for a few glasses of wine at lunchtime, and one is my limit! So I was concentrating v e r y h a r d in order to see the chart, although it was still a bit skew-whiff – I’m hoping I don’t have to frog too much!).

Don’t forget to sign up for the Giveaway – leave a comment on this post by Sunday morning UK time – I’m giving away a stitched item by me as a thank you to all my wonderful readers out there as a celebration of my recent one-year blogaversary. Good luck!

Happy stitching!

What a beautiful fob from Tuula! She is such a great stitcher and a wonderful and kind friend! I'm lucky to live only about 100 km from her, so we meet every now and then :)

Your Paradigm Lost looks wonderful, I just love the thread colour.

Great fob too :) Enjoy :)

linen and things said...

For years, I made the mistake of buying the wrong type of linen, bath products and other home products simply because I decided to buy from the big and popular names.
However , the love for linen isnt dying as far i am concerned :) . Thats why i am reading linen related blogs :)
