ABC Exchange

Although I was a day late in posting my SBEBB ABC Exchange, I knew it hadn’t got far to go so I just waited for that last little extra to arrive – arrive it did and I sent it off to Hazel,who emailed me the next day (yes, the postal service here is pretty wonderful compared with back home!) to say that she received it and loved it – phew, because I’d never finished a treat bag before :) Here is what I sent her:




Design: EEF Alphabet Basket
Linen: 32ct Lakeside Linen ‘Examplar’
Floss: DMC and GAST as charted
Finish: treat bag


Hazel has more and better photos on her blog if you’re interested.

Now I hope my ABC exchange comes through soon – I’ve been so impressed with everyone’s amazing stitching for this exchange that I’m really keen to see what arrives for me :)

The hen weekend in Galway went really well, but although I took my camera with me I didn’t actually take it out of the case, so no photos to share with you – we didn’t do much sightseeing it must be said!

I’ve been busy stitching (when not travelling!) on my secret project, so I’m afraid no photos to share – I’ve even had to co-opt my Paradigm Lost SAL Thursdays :( as I’ve been feeling quite under pressure to get a few exchanges out. I’ve finished up the last one for this summer though, with a view to getting on with the secret project in a very serious way, so hopefully will have some photos to share before long. And this weekend is my mini-SAL with Leena so I’ll be stitching away at the ‘E’ and the ‘L’ of Tournicoton’s Petit Noel design, and will share my progress with you at the end of the weekend.

Have a safe and happy weekend, and of course happy stitching!
