Remember a while ago I had nothing to show you because it was all secret stitching? Well, it seems like now I have so much to show I can't keep up! The surprise gift and the needleroll exchange have arrived, and I'm expecting my redwork exchange to arrive any day too.
First, here's the surprise I stitched. It's for Becky, and it's redwork because I knew she wanted to join the redwork exchange but was too busy with her family and stitching things for other people. She gives a lot to other people, so this was just for her!
It's from the A Mon Ami Pierre alphabet 8 and it's stitched over one on 32ct natural linen using the new variegated DMC 115 (which I can highly recommend!)
And here's the back with a pocket for a thing with our names!
It's been a bit of a red week hasn't it?! Needleroll pic to come tomorrow - although if you can't wait pop over to Katrina's blog to see it!
