Redwork exchange recieved

Redwork Exchange for Linda
This is the front. I used a Papillon Creations freebie on 32 count evenweave.

Back with Linda's initial
The Back showing "L" initial taken from the Repertiore des frises book.

Inside showing pockets and scissor fob and gifties
Here's the book open showing pockets and all the extras I sent. It also shows the tiny scissor keep I made using 40 count Sheeps straw linen from R&R reproductions. I also sent Linda some fabric too but I didn't photograph it. You can see her blog here. I am quite please with the way it turned out. I hand stitched it up and did it as neatly as I could.

What with all the postage strikes in the UK it's hard waiting to receive stuff in the post. Hopefully I'll get something next week.
In regards to the CDC I have decided to unpick the metallics and you'll just have to wait and see what I do with it next but just to say that's something else I am still waiting for in the post.

Have a good stitchy weekend.

Hazel i love this! I love this design (have stitched it too) and i love the finishing. Did you use a tutorial or did you just wing it? It looks fab.
Aren't the postal strikes annoying? Im awaiting an RR to stitch on.

Soo beautiful! And the tiny scissor fob is so cute!

That is gorgeous Hazel!

The postal strikes are really annoying aren't they? Our posties here aren't joining in the strike and the managers are bringing any post getting through from the nearest sorting office. Of course it depends on where els they are still working as to what gets through. My eldest DD is waiting for her student card so she can discounts on travel and cinema tickets.
