TUSAL and an Exchange

That time of the month again….

Not bad.  😉

Kathy let me know that she received her exchange package this week so I can show off my latest biscornu 😀  Kathy put out a call for personal exchanges a few months ago and I was lucky enough to get a slot…

Here’s the package:

I sent a package of favorites:

  • Mary’s Pin Pillow biscornu (most favorite biscornu pattern ever) in Dinky Dyes Summer Heat 2007 silk and fabric. (my favorite silks to work with)
  • Bohin needles
  • Moleskin notebook
  • Red scissors with a Kylie-made braid
  • Twistable colored pencils – my new favorite way to color in charts
  • Two fat quarters of fabric in favorite colors 

Interestingly, Kathy sent me a great biscornu (we didn’t specify finishing technique)

There was a great frog theme to my package:

I love it!  Thanks, Kathy 🙂

Time to show off two recent bits of exchange stitching.  

ABC Exchange (Hooked on Exchanging blog)

What I received…. a gorgeous pillow.  Love love love this!  Click to biggify…

I also sent a small pin pillow based on the Blackbird Designs “Know Your ABC’s” freebie.  I also did a small fob (recipient initials on the front, mine on the back with the date).  The cord is made from black DMC and metallic threads.

Finishing fabric you may recognize from this pic 😉

Chatelaine Exchange (Chatelaine Board)

Today’s mail brought me this gorgeous ornament based on sampler designs from the Ruby and Sapphire mini-mysteries:

And the back:

I sent a biscornu based on Mini Mandala 1 and a beaded fob:
