Exchange Received

Once again this year I signed up for the Stitching Bloggers Birthday Exchange, and again I received a partner with a January Birthday. At least this year it was the end of January instead of the beginning. My partner this year was Sherry also a Canadian, and from Ontario too. She was quite into Halloween and cats so I stitched up a scissor fob and biscornu for her. My Birthday is March 27th, so I won`t have too long to wait and find out who my partner is and what she (he) has made for me!

I haven`t stitched too much this week, but when I have stitched I`ve been working on Fair & Square Round 11 which as you know I can`t show you yet!


I hope everyone is having a nice Valentine`s Day, Todd was a sweetie and offered to take me out for breakfast this am and we`re going out for dinner with my Parents tomorrow.

Great job, Dani.

Would you mind sharing the conversion you used to the fob? I've stitched it with the Dinky Dyes, but I'm still interested to know what you used to make it look so similar.

The biscornu and fob are adorable, what fun patterns. Your earlier finish of the Maple Leaf was beautiful, can't wait to see how you decide to finish it off.
