Sorry for the lack of posts lately. It’s been busy around here. The photo above shows how I spent my weekend. On Saturday, we went to see Wicked, which was amazing. We bought tickets before we got married actually, so this has been a long wait! On Sunday, we went to the museum to see their exhibit of Japanese paintings. What I loved about the paintings, was the way they were mounted onto silk. I may have to take inspiration from that and do a wall-hanging of a stitched piece.
Anyway, the big news is that Pam has received the biscornu I stitched for the exchange on the Friends Gather BB!
I stitched a freebie called Manuela’s Sunflowers by Chatelaine Designs. The design called for gold beads and gold Kreinik, but I liked the yellow beads instead and left off the Kreinik. I used my Silkweaver Lemon Zest fabric for the bottom. I love the way it turned out, being my first biscornu, and I’m so glad Pam liked it too!
I also sent Pam LHN’s Spring Violets and some of the threads to stitch it. I’m so glad for another successful exchange!
I am grateful for fun exchanges with other stitchers.
