More Exchanges - Keeping Royal Mail Busy

Well, my postie is surely being kept busy by all these stunning packages being delivered to my door! It turns out that Andrea was my partner for the SBEBB Here's to Ewe exchange, and her parcel to me arrived last night (and has spurred me on to finally get the last finishing done on my exchange so my poor partner can finally receive hers!). Andrea is a big fan of The Drawn Thread, which suits me fine because so am I, and stitched me a truly gorgeous pinkeep - the finishing is really really beautiful, my photos don't really do it justice!

Designer: The Drawn Thread 'Two Friends'
Linen: 32 Water Lily Jobelan
Front:

Back:

Detail:

Isn't it just stunning?? And, of course, being the wonderful person she is, Andrea included lots of brilliant extras (it's not easy to tell, but the fluffy object on the left of the photo is actually a pen, complete with its own stand and topped with a marabou feather arrangement and a sheep!!), for which I am truly grateful. Thank you so much Andrea, I love it all!



Now, off to send off that exchange!

Happy stitching!

Hi Stephanie,
Just been on the SBEBB. I've not received an email through. I don't want you to think I'm ignoring you. :)

What a beautiful exchange. I ahve that lovely backing fabric, but I used it for a doll dress. I am gearing myself up to take part in my FIRST exchange. I am a bit nervous, but when I see the lovely things on various blogs I am just too excited for words. Glad to hear that Annemarie is getting better. I was very concerned for her.
