MYS Bellpull Exchange 2005

I participated in MYS (Malaysian_Stitchers Yahoo Group) Bellpull Exchange and the mail out date was April 4th. Despite of that, on the very day I was still 'struggling' with the finishing part for my bellpull hehehe. I was sidetracked from finishing the bellpull on time by stitching some small projects. Too many projects so little time to stitch LOL !

On April 7th, I received a bellpull exchange from Niesa in Sibu. I almost screaming when I opened the envelope. Right away I recognised that the pattern is from US The Cross Stitcher magazine issue February 2005. It was like a dream came true to me when Niesa stitched the pattern for me bcoz I like this sampler pattern. I have taken a picture of the bellpull together with the magazine. The picture does not give it a justice. It's a bit blurry image though, will replace with a better ones. I like the way Niesa finished off the bellpull.

On April 9th, I sent out my bellpull to Niza in Penang. I finished it on April 7th actually but only had time to go to the Post Office on Friday.

MYS Bellpull Exchange to Niza

The pattern is actually a combination of alphabet and sampler patterns by Jan Eaton. I really enjoyed stitching this bellpull despite the pressure to finish it on time. Not many colour changes. In fact, I only used 3 DMC stranded flosses (solid, variegated & metallic) and 1 Anchor multicolour floss. I got this finishing idea when i browsed some stitchers webshots albums months ago.

I stitched 'WELCOME' but what I would like to say to Niza the most is "Big Thank You" bcoz she inspired me a lot to venture further into cross stitching.
