The Potting Shed

I recently participated in an exchange on the USEBB titled: The Potting Shed. An appropriate design quickly came to mind: The Potting Shed, by Shepherd's Bush. Once I learned that I would be stitching for Katrina I knew that this would be perfect. Having read her blog I knew that she was a fan of Shepherd's Bush.
I did not stitch the entire design, I merely took bits and pieces to come up with this:

Although I had never tried it before I decided to finish it into a notepad holder:

I added a few more items and sent it on its way...

Katrina emailed to let me know that she received my exchange...Glad that you liked it!

Hi Marie, thank you for visiting my blog and leaving such a lovely comment. I was wondering why I hadn't seen you around before, but you seem to be rather new in Blogland :o)
I love your projects though!!! Especially the samplers for your sampler wall. A sampler wall is one of my dreams.
Vonna and I are setting up a blog for the Friendship Quilt Squares. Watch our spaces!

Lovely work on your Potting Shed exchange. And brilliant idea to make it into a notepad holder! I always love to see how people finish things.
