Blue embroidery ready for the show and my new exchanges!
I have joined a few stitching groups and I have signed up for a couple of exchanges, I am really looking forward to being involved. My first one is a pin keep exchange for Autumn, I am concentrating on that one at the moment and the next one is a mattress pincushion that does not need to be sent until October, however I will never get any stitching done if I keep looking at all the blogs! I usually stitch on Aida but I have started using the linen that I ordered in the previous post, for some reason I was afraid of using it but I am quite pleased with the results.
I am preparing for my next show on the 6 September, my sister will put her quilt in this show and I shall be entering the butterfly and blue embroidery pictures, I am not sure what my Mum will be entering but I will show you the pictures after the show. I may even enter my exchanges if they are finished in time!
The blue embroidery is from Leon Conrad Designs Ltd, Flowers of Joy in Blue, it has beautiful bright blue gem stones but the picture does not show them off too well.
