I posted off fron NZ the latest exchange items on Friday 28th May and have just learnt they arrived in Holland yesterday 1st June.
Gee that was quick, what a change from agonising for weeks waiting to hear that a parcel had arrived.
The exchange was for a stitchers toy with at least 25 french knots. I made the scissor fob first and it was fun to make. Planned to do a needlebook to match, but  decided on the pincushion when I had learnt who my exchange partner was as I had sent Liz a needlebook last year ( see post for 6th December.).  The pin cushion has a hard base and four covered beads for feet that do not show in the photo. Last month I received a lovely blackwork pinkeep and fob from Liz which I hope to add the photos soon..

Here is how to stitch the scissor fob.

That is gorgeous! You are really an over-achiever... no stopping at French knots for you. Those bouillon roses are so perfectly stitched!

Carol said...

Oh, your needlework is just exquisite, Lee! I love seeing your work and I'm sure the recipient will treasure them :)

Joan said...

I wonder how many thousand bouillon roses you have stitched Lee, as I have personally seen many hundreds of them of clothes you have embroidered as well as your embroidery pieces.

Hi Lee

I have shown the items to some friends and my teacher of Reticello, and they all send you kind regards and compliments.
Have nice inspirations and it was nice visiting your blog
