My ABC exchange from Linda

I received late on Friday afternoon, the most delightful package :) The package was from Singapore, so that made it ever so much more fun! :) I opened it and found this lovely mattress style pincushion stitched and finished by Linda !

Petits Points and Toile Delin

By Marjorie Massey

Stitched on light blue 28 ct. linen Jubilee with DMC 815


Back with my name beautifully stitched. Linda said you used the "V" as a vase to hold 3 flowers for me :)

Here's the whole kit and kaboodle Linda sent along with the pincushion. I'd say that I was royally treated :)

Linda did a beautiful job finishing and stitching this gem! It is stitched 1 over 1 and is just so delicated! Thank you ever so much Linda, it prominently sits in the middle of my new stitching display shelf! It is beautiful and it's all mine! :)
I've been stitching away this weekend on my Neighborhood RR and after I post this I'm going to get stitching on a surprise...I don't have too much more to stitch before it's finished...but I have a lot of little parts that all go together to form the entire surprise. So I've got to get whipping on it or it will be terribly late. Hope to have my RR finished this week so that I can show you what I chose to do! It's looking good so far I think! Hugs to you all I hope that you had a restful, stitchy weekend where ever you are! Until next time....

  1. Vonna,
    What a great present! I love stitching over one. It makes for hard stitching sometimes, but the look is beautiful. Hope your RR gets finished!
