Exchanges and February IHSW


This exchange is from Penny in The Stitcherhood group. Aren't those socks cute?  Since the snow is still here, they are keeping my feet warm. I hate cold feet.  Thank you Penny!

This is the ornament I received from Tonya in Stitcherhood group. The exchange is stitching an ornament a month and sending to a different partner. This is the first ornament.  I love how she reverse the colors on each side and my favorite Christmas colors. I had to show both sides. Thank you Tonya!

Angel Wings 
design by Shanda Vance-Markham
28 ct opalescent linen
Carrie Threads Sapphire and Passion 
Shanda designed and stitched these wings for her angel girl in pink. When I saw her wings, I knew I had to stitch them for my friend but in blue and added her son's name. She loved it! Thank you Shanda for a beautiful pattern.

Sugar Plum Fairy
by Mill Hill 
28 count Monaco white
I stitched this ornament for my friend in Korea.  I decided to put the fairy on fabric.  I stitched the legs in pink. There was some white on the side of the legs but because the fabric was white, I was thinking the white will get lost and she will look like she was dancing on sticks.
This is another Valentine exchange from Judith in my ILCSing group. The whole ornament is stitched one over one. It is gorgeous and I love the trim around it. Thank you Judith!


I stitched on Lady Slipper for the IHSW. I made a lot of progress. Are you ready?

There she is! Her dress is getting bigger. I almost can see the "flow" of the dress. I am enjoying stitching her very much.  

Thank your for looking and for your comments! Have a great week!

Hugs, Vicky
