"For it is in giving that we receive."
St. Francis Assisi
I participated in my first stitching exchange and had a wonderful time doing so. We had a theme of either tea or picnic. We had to include a stitched item, a recipe and 5 additional items of our choice.
I stitched for Barbara - barbsstitchincorner.blogspot.com.
This is what I sent in her package. My stitching piece was a needle/scissor holder. When reading her blog and seeing how much she liked lambs I couldn't resist on the back with her name putting a little lamb on.
The person who had me was Angela - http://hookedonstitches.blogspot.com. I had to wait awhile to receive my package because it was coming from Canada and they had the mail strike. Let me tell you it was well worth the wait.
Lainey hosted our exchange and to say thank you I sent this package to her.
I made this tea pot bread cloth and she is going to use in on a shelf. What a fun Idea. I always like getting new ideas.
I have already signed up for the next summer exchange and am waiting somewhat patient for my next partner.
