Do you remember me?

Happy spring everybody!  Thank you for visiting my blog and sending me comments and emails even though I was MIA for a while.
I have some things to share with you… I will start with my last year’s exchange with Sara (you can visit her blog HERE).

From Sara I received this beautiful Atalie Heart, a cute bag filled with buttons and lots of extras (fabrics, linen, ribbons, lovely traditional Romanian gifts and a pretty frame that I’ve used to frame my Strawberry House – you can see it HERE)

I made for her a needlebook and a little pilow. I've added few extras too... Pictures are from Sara's blog (she is a wonderful photographer)

I love Marjolein Bastin's art and fro my fruit themed kitchen I've stitched Summer Fruits. Framed it at my local Michael's store.

Nice to see you're back! Lovely exchanges!! So many wonderful things to drool over! I love the wee little button bag! Too cute! That needlebook is also gorgeous. I'm a fan of Marjolein too and that Summer fruits piece is stunning in its frame!!

What beautiful pieces you have stitched! I especially love the MB design. I am stitching one of her English garden samplers and enjoying every minute of it.
