"If you can count the number of projects you have going , you need to begin another, so you have a varied range of complexity from the very simple 'mind-less' ones to those that demand undivided attention." (Laura Early).

The three B's


 Birds , Bees and Butterflies .

I recently took part in the Birds , Bees and Butterflies exchange through the Stitched With Love Exchange blog. The gallery is now up , so I can show what I sent and received.

 This is what I stitched .

 The little butterflies are made with straight stitches gathered together in the middle, very effective . I added the eyelet stitches for a bit more detail 

The back looked a little plain , so I added a felt butterfly with beads for the body .

 And this is the whole package .

I haven't heard back from my partner yet , but hopefully she likes it .

 This is what I received from Kim. It was a totally gorgeous package , and I love it all. The kids are both after the stitched hanging , and I really like the owl pendant .
So cute .
All three b's ,lol .



 Thanks again Kim for a great exchange . Lots of lovely goodies . I do like a good exchange .

 A quick note for Margaret Sherry fans , I have listed my bookazine on e-bay . The item number is 321183610546 .

 I will be back soon with more news .
 Thanks for dropping by,
 Cath x

Both exchanges are wonderful with their stitched gifts and all the goodies. I really love the theme - if I still did exchanges I would certainly have joined this one. Enjoy your gifts.
