Redwork exchange recieved and Twilight Shimmer update

Well here is my October SAL update on Twilight Shimmer. Not a huge amount done but it was a lot of confetti stitching on the face which needed to be done and I did a big chunk on her shoulder/arm. Sorry its a bit blurred.
October SAL progress

And look at this gorgeous redwork exchange I got from Cari today. Rework exchange from Cari
Back of the pincushion

She stitched this beautiful pincushion on 32 count over 1!! She also sent me 25 skeins of dmc and this lovely pair of gingham scissors in "ashley". I have been longing for a pair of these for a while now but we can't get them over here I don't think. So thank you so much Cari. They are all gorgeous!

Sticking with my weeks rotation I am going to be reading all the blogs and commenting tonight and getting up to scratch with them all. Can't wait to see what you've all been stitching. Have a good stitching week. xx
