My weekly stitch group does a block exchange. Several years ago we stitched monthly blocks. Last year we decided to stitch 4 per year and it worked out great. Our first block exchange this year was going to be today, but we didn't meet because of icy streets. We'll exchange next week, but thought I'd share a pic of my block now. It's a heart design by De Selby. While searching for the "right" design, I started going thru old magazines in my stash.....and I found this heart with several other designs called Damask Ornaments in the June 2007 issue of The Cross Stitcher Magazine. I hope my exchange partner likes it!
The next stitched project is my RR from last year. There were 6 of us in the RR. We stitched the Quaker Style Friendship Sampler by Samplers and Such. I chose for my sampler a handdyed linen by Lakeside Linens (sorry, I can't remember the name!) and used CC Bing Cherry floss. I stitched the middle bottom section myself as there was a postal strike in England when my sampler was to go there. I'm very pleased with how my sampler turned out and am anxious to get it framed. Isn't it pretty?
