I was lucky to be a part of the Tutti Frutti Exchange hosted by Mii Stitch. My package arrive safe and sound and the goodies are now with the lovely Marie Christine at Berberis Patchwork blog. Marie-Christine loves melon, so I stitched this from a freebie pattern by DMC and made it into a pillow.
The back has two pockets:
I found the cutest watermelon biscornu pattern from Virginia Knutson and managed to find the PERFECT watermelon buttons for the center. It was my lucky day. I love strawberries and cherries, so I had to send Marie-Christine a cherry needle keep I stitched up and finished - and a mug rug. Her favorite color is dark green and she loves to adorn her scissors with ornamentation…..so I HAD to make a scissor fob in green crystals with a medallion on the end. LHN is one of my favorite designers, so I included a project, too.
The Halloween Ornament Exchange has gotten me in the mood to stitch up something ghostly and witchy-stitchy. I found the perfect candidate in the latest "Just Cross Stitch" magazine - here's "Stitching Witch". I stitched her on 36 count linen and discovered I had a frame in my stash that was perfect. It measures 1 1/4x 1 3/4 inches.
I'm stitching ornaments for exchanges I can't show you yet…stay tuned.
I found this darling free pattern for a Trick or Treat design at Chez Mounette….click over and check it out!!
