Blackbird Designs Contest Entry

Here's my entry for the Blackbird Designs Blog contest...Maya Teresa is my brand new great niece! I found pretty piece of lavender dupioni in my stash...maybe I'll make this into a little pillow...still undecided!
I used 32ct. hand-dyed Beach Plum linen and a Needle Necessities Thread from my stash.

Free pattern and details on Alma and Barb's blog- http://blackbird-designs.blogspot.com/

I so love French goodies...hope I win!

Some lovely gifts from far away!




In the last couple weeks I've received two wonderful exchanges!


From Monika in Hungary:


Her stitching is so nice and she has only been at it for a couple of years! Apologies for the poor scan. Thanks so much Monika!


This international exchange was http://swapwithnina.blogspot.com/ put together by the very talented stitcher Nina in Hungary.


Next, dear Carol of http://carolsxsblog.blogspot.com/ Garden of Stitches put together a biscornu exchange for me because my partner disappeared. (let's hope she is okay!)

It's so lovely and Purple! (my favorite color!) I'm stealing her picture because it is so much better than my scan. Thanks Carol! You are so sweet for doing that!
The pictures never seem to go where I want them!
On the home front, I've been very sick lately and would appreciate your prayers!
