Thank you for voting chain ;) It would be a lot harder to make partners that had never sent/received from each other :p

Last week I started asking for addresses but I'm still waiting on Olimpia's reply. Ysa and Heather have new addresses, anyone else changed in the last couple of years? Please, let me know ;)
Questions?

Don't forget the main rule: have fun!!!!
Let's start sending smiles :D

Poll » pairs or chain?


Hello everyone!!
Looks like I'm always a bit behind these days =) I used to be better here, I know.. Well, if a baby at home keeps your hands full, a toddler walking everywhere (and fast!!) it sure keeps you busy as well ;)

So, on our exchange, we have 10 stitchers:
Nia
Noni
Heather
Angel
Judith (Musicwoman)
Ysabel
Preeti
Olimpia
Valérie
Lentochka

I'm taking votes to decide if we exchange in pairs or chain.
Pairs: A < > B, C < > D...
A sends to B and B sends to A, C sends to D and D sends to C...

Chain: A > B > C... > A
A sends to B, B sends to C... the last one sends to A

How do you prefer? Vote until Sunday, I will post the list as the majority of votes ;)

New partners:
I always try to make new partners, so everyone gets the chance to exchange with everyone :) So it won't be in the order of the list above ;)

Completed Bags of Fun today!! Yay!!

Hi all.  I completed Bags of Fun today. Whew! It was lots of backstitching, and I bet you may notice I didnt stitch the whiskers.  I actually prefer the design without them.  I hope MS doesn't mind! :))  I'm now debating whether to make into cushion or frame it.  Happy Stitching to everyone!! :))

exchange update and tips :)


I posted yesterday but already have news and I thought I could share some tips for our exchange :)
First, Angel is in for our exchange too, she will make it work to go along with our dates :) (happy you can join sweetie!!)

Stitchers:
Nia
Noni
Heather
Angel
Judith (Musicwoman)
Ysabel
Preeti
Olimpia
Valérie
Lentochka

What to stitch:
I wanted to share some tips with you, about what to stitch and what piece to make.
First, you don't need to stitch a huge pattern, you can pick something small or even a piece of a pattern (we have done it here before). That's ok, your work will be different but also unique :) Make the pattern your own!!
For the finish, don't stress about it, don't over do it to make something you don't feel confortable. Go simple, make something nice and pretty. Of course you can make a big and complex gift if you want ;) but for those who don't have much time or amazing skills (we are all different), go simple and pretty, it's ok.
The import here, is to have fun making your gift/parcel and make your friend smile!!! :D
Enjoy!!! Have fun!!!

exchange update!!


Hi everyone!
Again, sorry for taking so long to update here.. it has been difficult to have some free time with my boy walking everywhere! Only 14 months but he walks too fast!!! I spend my day running behind him :p

I gave a long time for everyone to sign up but not many stitchers joining.. probably not having as much free time as they wished? I know how that is :p well, but I will still try to participate and do my best :) So far, 9 friends for the exchange, I still have to check with Angel because everyone else prefered a later deadline..

14 more days to sign up here!!

Coffee & Cuddles


"This cute scene has real "ah" factor and looks great decorating a kitchen or hallway."

Hello everyone!

What about cup of coffee? Or cup of cat? :-D These cats sitting in the cups are so lovely. Two ginger and two grey cats make me smile and what about you?

You can find this design in the book The best of Margaret Sherry.

Have a nice Sunday!
