A Really Fun Exchange

Last month I participated in an exchange with the theme - Lady Like. I had so much fun with this exchange - I couldn't stop coming up with things to add to my partner's package.

The following is what I received from Ellen.

Isn't this needle book just beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

These are photos of everything I sent to my partner Kathleen (no blog).

This is pillow kit from Pine Mountain Designs -  Girl Things.  The kit includes the pillow cover and floss. Since I work for an upholstery business, rather than buying the pillow form I found some black polka dotted fabric in the remnants and made my own pillow.

 I also made a floss tag using a freebie design from Happiness is Cross Stitching.  I just move the words around so it would fit the tag.

The "purse" is a manicure set and the "shoe" is a notebook.

I made the scarf using Red Heart's Boutique Sashay Yarn colour Tutu.

Take care and happy stitching.
