Wohooo!!! I received my Spring Exchange gift with the SBEBB from Paula....isn't this cute pillow adorable? I fell in love with it immediatelay. The backing of the pillow is made of the fabric you can see under the other wonderful gifts. As you see she also sent 3 beautiful fabrics in spring colors a very springy card. Paula spoilt me so much ..... very lucky me :-)))) And Paula's stitching is extraordinary neat, it seems to be railroading, isn't it Paula? Exchanges are WONDERFUL!!!! :-)



A few days ago Jo mailed me that she received my spring exchange gift and I'm releived that she likes it because I stitched a linen band for her that is displayed in a way that is very common in Germany but I've never seen something similar in the US....







Yesterday my friend Margret visited me and did't stitch at all. But today I put some additional stitches in MTM. One side is nearly finished and I hope to add all of the (very much)
backstitches tonight...

Your exchanges are lovely, both yours you sent and the one you have received.

Have to agree with Su - your exchanges are stunning. The one you sent to Jo is just gorgeous! And the one you received from Paula is great - love the added fabbies, what a great time you're having with exchanges :D

I, too, enjoyed seeing your exchange for Jo! I'd never seen a project finished like that - it's gorgeous. :)
Lisa must be feeling better since you've been out shopping. Looking forward to seeing a pic of her in her new shoes.

Glad you like it. It was my first time using my very first sewing machine. I didn't railroad the stitches - i just stitched them as normal.
Your exchange for Jo is lovely and very different.

Das Kissen, das Du bekommen hast, gefällt mir, aber Dein Dahlbeckband ist auch sehr schön. Komisch, daß man so etwas bei den US-Sickerinnen gar nicht kennt. Sonst habe ich beim Surfen oft den Eindruck, daß "alle" "irgendwie dasselbe" sticken, da ist es doch auch schön, wenn es noch ein paar "nationale Besonderheiten" gibt...
