Prairie Schooler exchange

My partner finally recieved her Prairie Schooler exchange I made her for the HOE blog. My partner was Sharon from Cross Stitch Happy. Here is what I made her:

I made her a matching scissor fob and holder and needlecase. It is from the book Needles and Pins and I enjoyed every stitch. I think Sharon liked it too to I can breathe a huge sigh of relief now.

Today I got my PS exchange through also. It is from Ulla. Thank you Ulla, it is very nice.

Exchange rec'd from Ulla

Here's a snap of my Mira Christmas Angel that I started this week. I have just ordered the beads and kreinik for it so they should come tomorrow. I am stitching this on 36 count and I am loving how it is turning out.

Christmas Angel start sept 08

And just for fun, I thought I'd post some bath lights that I bought the other week! They change colour and float and are just the most relaxing thing!!

So, I have a mini biscornu exchange due out next week and I also need to make a start on the Harvest Time exchange and think about the Christmas ornie one. I have also been looking at fabrics for the Beatrix Potter SAL and Rachel from Willing Hands has kindly directed me to Sassy's Fabrics which look really stunning. I'll be thinking about that one over the weekend.

Have a happy stitching weekend,

What a cute needleset you made, the designs are perfect for stitchers. Your angel is looking so pretty as well, and what a fun exchange you got. Loved the bath lights, I'll bet those would be a delight to have floating. What a nice way to end a day.
