My partner Amy has received my Valentine exchange.

Amy my exchange partner for the Hooked on Exchanging Too group has received my pillow and scissor fob that I stitched for her, which means I can now show you the contents of the pale blue box in the previous post!
When the day of posting arrived I found it difficult to part with it, so of course, you guessed it, I made two, one for me and one for Amy! I made my scissor fob slightly different , I shall add more photo’s to this post tomorrow.
This is a Valentine freebie pattern that can be downloaded from here, there is quite a nice selection of free cross stitch patterns on this website.

    So pretty. I’m sure Amy loves it. I can see that it would be hard to part with; I would have stitched two too 🙂

    Lynn…that is so beautiful! What wonderful finishing. I’m just starting to doing all these creative finishes…slowly but surely. I don’t think there was all this when I was stitching 6 or 7 years ago…at least not on blogs. So inspiring! Thanks for the freebie link!

    Oh isn’t that pretty? I love how you did the ribbon around it. She’ll love it!

    Lynn, they are SO lovely! I love how you always add your own little embellishments, and personal touches to your stitchery. Also, how you arrange your finishes in your photographs. Very artistic! (and I understand see why you would stitch your own set too!) Well done!
