Sewing pattern that is....i have been playing this week and have been working on a new sewing this space, i just need to tweak it  bit before i can show you, i am loving it though and even my daughter said how much she liked it...must be ok then lol

A finish and an exchange received......

I started LHN "Curly Q Ewe"on tuesday when Wendy and Rachael came to visit, i finished the stitching the next day but had to wait for some fabric and a cushion inner to "finish" her off and i am very pleased with the result, she has been waiting to be stitched for some time, i am loving the colours i chose, (different to the original design, i never have the right threads !!)

i also received an exchange piece from Lynn W this week from the Lizzie kate exchange blog, thank you lynn i am very happy, love it, it is now living on my stitchy shelf at the top of the stairs!
i now need to work on an exchange piece for my partner at the Scout hut Crafters group weekend crop in a couple of weeks, the theme is friendship, mmmmm i cant quite decide what to do though, got a couple of bits in mind, we shall see......
