I will be updating my work on flickr - Sanguine Stitcher henceforth.

Quartet Exchange Received

Lillie sent me a most wonderful Quartet Exchange. I've never received a needle roll before, neither have I made one. I'll be inspecting it closely should I fancy attempting one, now that I am inspired :) Lillie also included some very useful trimmings!

I was admiring the 'Believe' ornaments on Lillie's blog recently and I am ashamed to say, I kinda knew one of them would be for me ;) I just did not know which? The one I received is stitched 1/1! Marvellous!

Thank you Lillie, it's on my board already :)

Gifts from Margaret W

In one swoop Margaret sent to me items made by both of our favourite designers. It's really really breathtaking and her finishing is impeccable.

First up is Blackbird Design's Autumn Song. This was a personal exchange actually. I love the fabric, it's backing, everything about it. Margaret was apprehensive of it's simple finishing but very frankly simple is so great, you know what they say less is more etc ...

Then it was a lovely Christmas gift. A Prairie Schooler ornament. Need I say more ;)

Margaret also include a lovely FQ of finishing fabric. She sure knows what I like :) Here they are all together!

Thank you dearest Margaret.
