Autumn cushion ornie and a Pin cushion and fob

This is the Autumn exchange for Sharon in Exchange Heaven, it is hanging ornie cushion. A JBW design on 28c Even Weave and I used Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe HDF, colour pumkin

And my second is my All Year Prairie School exchange which has arrived at last, I was beginning to get quite worried as it was sent with another package to the same country and it hadn't arrived. It was such a relief.(Not a very good photograph I'm afraid)

Wendy says she likes it so I am pleased too.
It was a pin cushion and scissor fob all stitched on 28c Jacobean Even Weave,with DMC threads.

Both were lovely to stitch and of course I had two lovely exchanges back.
I have decided not to do another PS exchange before christmas and after the next Exchange Heaven item I am ducking out of exchanging for a while as I have some other things in the pipe line.

Your stitching is beautiful Chris, you always choose lovely designs to send.

Looking forward to seeing what you have lined up... exchaning is fun but it does take over time for stitching other things for yourself and family doesn't it.

Have a good weekend

What a lovely exchange you received. The exchange you sent is lovely too. Sometimes the mail post is a real worry though isn't it.
I have withdrawn from quite a few exchanges too. My own pieces were just languishing at the bottom of the pile.

Lovely exchange pieces - two very lucky recipients. Look forward to seeing what else you have planned. :0)

I recognize the JBW design. She was featured in a magazine I have. I don't remember the name of it, but it is a cross stitch magazine. If I had not read about her, I would not have recognized her design on your project. Which turned out great by the way.
