Summer Exchange

I sent Wendy Jo's exchange out quickly because I wanted her to get it before she left for Denver and I forgot to take a picture of it. She kindly offered to let me use the pictures from her blog to show you what I made for her.

This shows everything that I sent her. Since I live in Kansas and the state flower of KS is the sunflower, I went with that theme. I made a pouch with a sunflower button, a sunflower scissor fob and included some other goodies in the pouch.

And I made my very FIRST pinkeep. I was so nervous putting this baby together, but it was MUCH easier to do than I thought it would be. This is an old L*K freebie that I did on a Silkweaver lugana. I thought it turned out pretty well, especially since this was my first pinkeep. I'll definitely be making more pinkeeps. They turn out so nice!

Until next time,

Model Stitching

Early this year I got to stitch my first ever model. This model was for Beth Twist of Heartstring Samplery. "Remember Me" was released last Friday so I can finally share with you what I have been stitching on. She bought a frame from a thrift shop and framed it herself. I think she did a lovely job on it. I can never find a frame that works just right for my stitching. Beth has designed some lovely samplers, check out her etsy shop or ask at your LNS. This one is stitched on 35 ct Weeks Dye Works Cappucino linen. It was a dream to stitch on, I'll have to check on getting some more of their linen.

Until next time,
