A Beautiful Exchange from Aniza

I’ve been admiring all the beautiful exchanges sent and received for the ABC Exchange and was keen to see what treasure I was going to receive – and I wasn’t disappointed! Aniza was my partner, and this lovely treat arrived for me all the way from Malaysia. She stitched it with her own hand-dyed threads, isn't she talented?! (Please excuse the photos.)




It's just gorgeous. Although I’ve stitched a few needlerolls before, I’ve always sent them away to other homes, so in fact this is my very first needleroll to keep. I’m delighted with it – thank you Aniza. She also included a lovely piece of fabric and, of course, some of her own hand-dyed thread, which are beautiful. Thank you so much Aniza!



On the down side, my car failed its MOT this morning, and we woke up to a large leak in our spare bedroom... This could be a costly weekend, hopefully the plumber will arrive soon and the news won't be too bad :(

Hope your weekend is shaping up better than mine :)

Happy stitching!

Fingers crossed that your car and your leak turn out to be low-cost isssues!

Lovely exchange! I had some of her thread in an exchange years ago and just loved it.

Oh, yikes! Hope all the problems get sorted soon, Stephanie!

Aniza´s exchange gift is gorgeous! And she hand-dyes these threads herself? Speaking of multi talented...

That's a gorgeous needleroll - the threads are very pretty indeed.

We're having a bad plumbing weekend too. Now it has already 'spilled over' so-to-speak into the new week. Right now we are at the do-it-yourself stage. Good luck to you. I am sure that lovely needleroll brightened you up a bit.
