Birthday Gift and House Exchange

I received a lovely belated birthdaygift from Carol. She sent me the chart "Deftly Wrought" by Midsummer Night Designs. And I like it so much. I never heard of MND before but I will look for more of their designs. :-) She also sent the needed fabric for it. You spoilt me so much.....Thank you very much, Carol!!!!!

And I received even more wonderful things..... My House exchange with SBEBB was in the mail. Paula was my exchange partner. She sent this wonderful pillow and and piece of fabric she used for the back. So I can make a companion house pillow for myself ;-) There was a nice chart by Drawn Thread with it as well. It’s one of my favorites. Thank you so much, Paula. I love the things you’ve sent me!!!!

I just found out that my exchange partner Karoline got hers as well. This is what I stitched for her:

It’s called 1831 Pincushion by The Goode Huswife. But I made a few changes :-)

Thank you so much for my house exchange, it's gorgeous and I've found the perfect spot for it in my dining room :)

I couldn't get the comment page to come up for your last post, the one with the santas, but I just wanted to say that it's beautiful. The chimney looks wonderful.

The exchange piece you did looks great.

Happy Belated Birthday.

You are welcome Bine - I am glad you like it! I plan to stitch that one soon, so if you want to do a SAL, let me know :-)

Hach! Da habt Ihr aber wieder schöne Sachen getauscht. Schön, daß Du uns teilhabenläßt. Die Designerin kannte ich nicht, hab aber mal "gegooglet". Da sind sehr schöne Sachen dabei. Also, danke für den "Verbraucherinnenhinweis"! ;-)
LG und frohen Sonntag,
