I returned home from my little break away on Friday evening, the opening day for the Spring Exchange.
We had a lovely time, glorious weather for the time of year and we saw lots of lovely places, photos are being sorted from the camera so i'll do a post soon for you.
My brother was rushed into hospital on the Monday we were away so even though we had a nice time, we were also very worried about him. He was discharged Thursday late evening, but had to be readmitted again Saturday. He is now back home again resting and i have been able to see him and give him a big sister hug.
The Spring Exchange @ NH
I stitched a Shepherds Bush design for Angie (no blog that i know of) called Softly Spring and made a pinkeep.
The fabric was a piece from the oddment bag, a 28ct count but no idea what and i used DMC threads as i didn't have the required special silks the chart asks for.
I have heard that Angie liked it, i wonder if anyone else chose this design in the exchange, i need to go and see what everyone else received.
The lovely parcel i opened was from Rachael.
A Lizzie Kate spring design, so beautifully stitched and made into a little tray. It's the first time i have received one of these and i have never made one myself. Something else i might have to have a go at.
It's beautiful, thank you so much Rachael.
I'm looking forward to catching up on blog reading this week and see what you have all been up to whilst i've been away.
Take care, happy stitching and crafting!
