Seasonal Stitchers Exchange

I received my Seasonal Stitchers "Summer" Exchange from Julianne. As you can see it is truly wonderful. She stitched a design from one of my very favorite designer, Prairie Schooler. I love that she finished it as a wallhanging. She even personalized it with a block on the back. I must tell you Julianne does beautiful work, and I am so excited that she will be stitching for me three more times.

Seasonal Stitchers Exchange
Season: Summer
Received from: Julianne
Designer: Prairie Schooler
Finish: Wallhanging

Julianne sent so many wonderful gift: Specialty thread by Impressions and The Thread Gather Silk 'N Colors ~ the colors are perfect, Silkweaver fabric ~ I can sure use that, Homespun Elegance "Alphabet Sampler" pattern ~ another of my favorite designers, some Crabtree & Evelyn soap and some Lavender lotion ~ both smell so good! I was spoiled :-D.

Thanks Julianne, I love all that you sent and will treasure my new wallhanging.

As a participant is the Seasonal Stitchers group I will be stitching for Leena. I stitched her a design from Prairie Schooler "Friends" and finished it as a Pinkeep. Soon I will be stitching a "Fall" exchange for her. There are so many wonderful fall designs that I am not quite sure what to stitch.

Village of Hawk Run Hollow

With the addition of Katrina and Mindi, we now have 5 stitchers participating in our SAL. It will be fun to see the posted pictures of our monthly progress.

Here is my progress thus far. Given that we have until 9/30 to complete a block, I am certain that I will meet this months goal.

Progress as of: Sept 7, 2007

Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Until next time...

Your exchanges are gorgeous, both the one you received and the one you did. Making good progress on Village SAL. Just found out late Tuesday that my replacement light has arrived. Now I can concentrate on getting my first block on the Village done. Great job.

The exchanges are both wonderful. The wallhanging is too cute! Your VOHRH is looking wonderful, you should easily finish that block by the end of the month.

Leena said...

I just love the pinkeep you stitched for me, it has a special place in my stitching shelf and I admire it every day :) It's such a lovely design and so perfectly done.

You've received a beautiful exchange from Julianne!

Ranae said...

Lucky you getting the beautiful wall hanging. Love the pinkeep too.

Jeanne said...

What a great exchange! You are one lucky stitcher! And your pinkeep is fabulous - I stitched that design in whole and had it framed for my best friend's 50th bday a few years back. We've been friends for over 30 years so it was very fitting. Great work on everything!

Xangles said...

Hi, marie-p. You lucky woman. The wallhanging is so beautiful, and that PS friends pinkeep... Definitely on my wish list!
Thanks for sharing!

Cathy said...

What a great wallhanging you received! And I like the pinkeep that you finished and sent to Leena too!
