Pin Pillow Exchange part 1

I haven’t heard from my exchange partner directly, but I noticed on Becky’s blog today that the list shows that she’s received my pin pillow exchange for her.  I hope she liked it 🙂

Anyway, I’ve decided to go ahead and show the pillow I made for her now I know it’s been received, ‘cos I’ve been champing at the bit wanting to share the piccies.  My recipient was Jayne, and I read on her blog that she likes the colour purple, alphabets and quakers, so this was my choice for her (I personalised one side with both of our initials):

Janice Wood-Quaker Heart freebie

Janice Wood-Quaker Heart freebie

“Quaker Heart” freebie by Piecework magazine
Stitched on 28ct Lavender Bliss Cashel linen
with Carrie’s Threads “Lavender”
finished with a beaded edge

Now I’m considering joining up for Becky’s next exchange – a scissor pocket … I love it ‘cos it’s a “no extras” exchange again, which is really appealing to me, rather than sending extras than people may not want.

  2. Hi Anne
    I would just like to say a big thank-you for the wounderful pin pillow that you made me, I did try to E-Mail you but it obviously did not reach you. I have admired this pattern for a while and now I have it, it is beautifully finished and edged with beads.

  3. This is a lovely pattern and I love the colour of the thread you chose. I love no extras exchanges, it really takes the pressure off.

  4. Beautifully stitched and perfectly finished, Anne. You do such lovely work; anyone would be thrilled to receive something from you!
