Too many exchanges? lol

After I’ve signed up last year for my first exchange ever and I had so much fun, I decided that 2010 will be my Exchange Year. I’m going to sign up for as many exchanges I can handle and I’m sure that by Christmas I will have a nice variety of stitching pieces in my collection. Some of my friends said that I was bitten by the exchange bug too hard. Are they right?

In March, as part of the monthly biscornu exchange I’ve stitched for Mayte the Stitcher’s Favorite Biscornu by The Sweetheart Tree.



Designer: The Sweetheart Tree
Fabric: 32 Ct Platinum Belfast Linen
Thread: DMC and Weeks Dye Works
Beads and buttons from the Biscornu’s Embellishment Pack

For Lisa as part of our monthly exchange I’ve stitched the Stitcher’s Favorite Scissor Fob by The Sweetheart Tree.


Designer: The Sweetheart Tree
Fabric: 32 Ct Platinum Belfast Linen
Thread: DMC and Weeks Dye Works
Beads and buttons from the Fob’s Embellishment Pack


This is not all, dear friends! LOL
Becky hosted a Pin Pillow Exchange and I stitched for Ranae this Small Token from Blackbird Design after I’ve read on her profile that it’s one of her favorite designers. The funny part is that she stitched the same design for her partner. :)



Designer: Blackbird Designs
Fabric : 36 linen hand-dyed by Nina
