Liberty Belles and more exchanges

 I finished Little House Needleworks Liberty Belles.  I stitched the design on 28 count Crystal Harmony lugana with the recommended with one change.  I switched a green-gray color for a blue gray color. I love how it came out and the material sparkles too.   I did make a mistake which I left in.  Can you guess the mistake? 

I join in an exchange in Stitching With Love Exchanges blog.  This was a secret exchange and my partner spoiled me.  The theme was Tea/Picnic for a summer afternoon.  Barb stitched a lovely strawberry pin  pillow and she included a cat plaque, a cat needle minder, ice cream sundae napkins, Dinky Dyes silk threads, and a piece of purple fabric from Sassy's Fabbys.  Thank you so much Barb!  
The person I send to  lives in Canada.  Until I get word she got my package, it will be a secret a little bit longer, I hope.  

Marjorie, of The  Pumpkin Patch Stitcher, had a giveaway and I won.  When the package came, my mouth dropped!  I was just expecting the prize I won, CCN Tea Room pattern, but she included a tea cup dish towel, tea pot cover, a small stitched pillow and several patterns.  I am just touch by her generosity. I cant wait to start a couple of them. Thank you Marjorie!

In KraftersKorner, there was a coaster exchange I had to join.  Carien sent me the coaster she made for me.  She stitched a flower  with strawberries with beads on a plastic canvas.  It is very lovely and it will come very handy with my drinks.  Thank you Carien!




I picked up Lizzie Kate ABC Lessons this past week.  This is what it looked before I started stitching again.  I have since finished the word "Be" in the first line, the word "thanks"in  the second line, and the letter "H" in the third line.  I had finished a bookmark and a coaster for exchanges and working on a Christmas ornament for another exchange.  Sorry no pictures until they reach their new homes. The rest  of the pictures is my new stash I got from my retreat.  I have a lot of stitching to do!









I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer and trying to keep cool!

Many hugs,
Vicky

I just stitched Liberty Belles myself, Vicky, and I can't even spot your mistake! It looks great--wasn't it a fun stitch?
