SBEBB - ABC EXCHANGE 2007 Received

I received this beautiful pinkeep ornament from Paula. The design she selected is by Carriage House Samplings published in Just Cross Stitch magazine June 2005 issue.

The finishing of the pinkeep ornament is exquisite and the design has a very 'spring' look. Paula also included some fabric and alphabet beads for me. Currently I have hang this beautiful piece in my workplace. Thank you Paula, you make my day. ;-p

For this ABC Exchange, we are free to use any fabric and floss. However we have to include alphabet inside the design.

As I received a beautiful pin cushion from Cari for the Winter Quaker Exchange, I decided to make my first pin cushion for my exchange partner Vonne too.

I chose this beautiful design by Majorie Massey from the book "Petits Points & Toile Delin". It's a french cross-stitch book with many wonderful designs. I used DMC 815 and sewn it one-over-one onto a 28 count jubilee light-blue fabric.

And this is the back design with her name sewn and three flowers on top of the letter V which like a vase :-). The width of the pin cushion is about 1 cm . The three pieces are then joined together and then stuffed with 6 layers of quilt cotton battings.

I am pretty amazed that I have did such a beautiful piece of work. Thanks to those kind stitchers out there who provide us the wonderful tutorials.
