MYS Exchange 2006 round 2

April 1st was the mailout date for Round 2 of MYS Exchange 2006

For this round, I sent a bookmark to Angie :


It is one of
Joan Elliott charts in last year World of Cross Stitching magazine. However, due to some miscalculation, inavailabilty of some flosses & a matter of preference, there are some adjustments made to the chart. I stitched on silver perforated paper using DMC & overdyed flosses.

In this round I received a pleasant surprise - a needlebook from Angie


The pic doesn't do justice to her stitching which is very neat in real life. She stitched on 18ct beige damask aida. Wow! I have to say, it is rather impressive! I had some difficulties when I tried stitching on black damask aida last time. I love the shiny effect that the fabric have though.

And today, I received a beautiful flanged pillow from Roz.


I simply love the colour combination & pattern. YES, it is very TRUE,
Simple Pleasures Are Best. Thanks Roz, you really brightened up my day.

Love the bookmark you sent to Angie, and what you received from her! But above all, I really love what Roz sent you - I am partial to flanged pillows ;)

Isabelle Thank you! I was curious about flanged pillows before, love to learn how to sew one for me. I'm thrilled receiving one from Roz. I think now I have some ideas on how to sew a flanged pillow. Will be in to-do list *wink*
