Freebie Exchange from Marie

I received my freebie exchange from Marie yesterday! She stitched me a pattern from one of her favourite designers, Mary Garry. It's called Sew and Sew and she made it into a beautiful pinkeep! She also enclosed some extras from my wishlist for which I am grateful. I must mention that I love the cording which she made for the pinkeep. Very nice indeed. Sorry, but my camera did not do justice to the lovely items she sent me.

Ok, I tried to take a better picture of the pinkeep, the backing fabric and the cording made by Marie.

Yet another exchange!

This time it is the Free Design exchange on the Hooked on Exchanging (HoE) board! My partner, Paula C, received the exchange in just about a week. I stitched her a Heart-shaped Needlecase designed by Mady_p2x, a French designer. The name of the piece is called 'Printemps' which means Springtime. It was stitched on 32 count linen with DMC threads 469 and 115. I used some backing fabric from Jacqueline, my partner from the Pinkeep Exchange. It turned out pretty good and I was pleased with the finished product! I really enjoyed making it for Paula. Now it's onto my next exchange!
