spring pincushion exchange and the easter winner...

The first exchange i joined in this year, one of the yahoo groups...Friendly Stitchers and it's a 'Spring exchange' finished into a pincushion. Both were received so i can show a pics. Here is what i made for my partner, Niina(no blog). I forgot to take a pic with the threads i included as this exchange we are asked to enclose threads which cost about 5 pounds.

Spring pincushion
Prairie Schooler design
32ct linen
DMC threads & beads


Here is the pincushion i received from my partner. Such a cute spring design. Thanks so much Niina.


I should have picked the winner last friday but hubby just got home i haven't had much time for hobbies as well as coming online. Since he has only a couple of days here at home and then left last sunday to the other island for a week following a course.
Some unexpected papers to arrange yesterday with regards to the mortgage which we had thought it was all done with...ah, seems like unending headaches....Hoping for a good news later this week!

Anyway, the winner picked by Chris this afternoon is....Suzanne from Australia. Congrats and please let me know your address and will send it right away. Thank you all for visiting and to those entered the giveaway, i wish i could give a prize to all...


I hope everyone's having a lovely week and enjoying the spring sunshine.
