Exchange Arrival Rings in Spring!

Just look at this amazing pillow Lindsay sent me for the Easter Holiday Exchange!




Cherckerboard Bunny Freebie from Waxing Moon Designs
on unknown pale blue linen
using GAST with some substitutions.
Stitched by Lindsay




The bunny is such an nice colour--I LOVE him!! :D





Her stitching is so neat--I wish I could make such nice french knots!! I only recently learned, and, well...



Other fun goodies were also included: A sunny notepad, some of that scented floss (I've been curious about wanting to try it), and some chocolates which missed the picture because I've put them in the fridge to re-solidify so that we can eat them! The LLV (That's what the boxy mail trucks in US are called; short for "Long-Life Vehicle") must have been pretty warm today 'cause they got a little melty--fortunately Lindsay had the clever thought to seal them in a bag just in case! :D

Thank You so much Lindsay; I'm so excited to have some spring stitching! I've been doing lots of fall/winter stuff lately (which I love), but I also love pastels! :D I'll be enjoying each warm spring day (as we get them) together with this darling pin pillow! :D

What a beautiful exchange piece you received. I love this way of finishing, these little pillows always look great.
The WIPs you showed in your last post are terrific. And nearly done. Looking forward to seeing the Fox Forest finished. Will you finish it the way it's on the chart picture? Very nice strawberry pinkeep you stitched and finished.

Hi Berit - I'm behind in my blogging. I love the Easter gift you received and the sweet little pinkeep you made is just delightful! You have been a busy girl.

I also love your Fox Forest piece - I have not seen this one and look forward to watching your progress.

Enjoy your day!

That is sooooooo cute! I stitched that a few years back for Ben and made it into a pillow - it was his Easter gift that year. The design is so sweet.

What a sweet bunny.....lucky you!!! And it even came with chocolates.....how perfect!

Danielle said...

That's lovely! In the interim when I was not stitching or even doing much looking, these pin pillows came about and I thought they were so cool. Over the weekend I took a design I stitched ages ago and finished it into one of these pin pillows--not sure how it turned out--I think I need to stuff it more so it is more round, but never mind, there's always next time. I'm just waiting for some decent light to take a good photo and will share. I sort of like to stitch with the seasons, too--and am looking for something with nice, bright colors!
