Stitched with Love Exchange

I recently participated in my first Stitched with Love exchange.  The theme was Fall into Autumn. I sent a package to one partner and received from another, lots of fun. 

For my partner,Cherise, I stitched a pattern from Helga Mandel called Autumn Pinkeep.  It was in one of my old The Gift of Stitching e-magazines.   It is no longer available on her website.  I finished it into an ornament that Cherise can hang in her kitchen or in a window.  The back is covered with burnt orange fabric and I used jute to cover the edges.  The exchange required some additional stitching items be sent as well.  I added some floss, patterns, beads, fabric and a packet of Bohin needles which are my absolute favorite needle for cross stitch.

Package of goodies sent to Cherise

In return, I received a very generous package from Becky.  Lovely fabric, patterns, floss, aida, evenweave, tissue, note pads, patterns, and a beautiful fall stitched piece of trees.  Loved every bit of it.  Thanks so much, Becky!!
