In other stitching news , Lisa and I have just completed our private exchange ,and it was lovely.
We agreed on the exchange earlier this year , but I wanted to wait until June to make sure everything was sorted from my year long exchange with Lainey , and get a few other bits done. Funnily enough , I posted mine out the day before Lisa , yet I got mine from her a few days before she got mine , lol.
Anyway , this is what I received
This is what I sent to Lisa. the chart is a freebie from the Workbasket , I'm fairly sure it's called Quaker Hedgehog. It was my first choice of charts to stitch , and after several times changing my mind , I came back to it.He's finished as a kind of pin keep , with a pocket for scissors at the back.The scissor fob is the centre of the hedgehog chart made into a full motif, I thought it turned out quite well.And the other goodies : Two pieces of even weave , DMC linen threads, a chart from Lisa's' wish list , notebook and a Tudor Rose Pin. I'm very pleased that Lisa likes it all , so another successful exchange . Another big Thank you Lisa , I've really enjoyed this.
I also took part in Lainey's' Summer tea party exchange, which I have received ,and I think my partner has received hers ,so hopefully we'll be able to show pics soon. There has been some delays with the problems with Canada post , but hopefully it will be sorted now.
Still no news re. my husbands' job. The company that bought them out are too busy dissolving their other recent purchases (Habitat and HMV) at the moment ,so will get round to letting them know what's happening at some point.
Thanks for dropping by everyone ,
Take care ,
