I have sent my first exchange today, I do hope it arrrives safely.
My son is studying for one semester at University in Wisconsin, USA, he went shopping with his girlfriend the other evening and they bought me the Just Cross Stitch Ornament Magazine, I am so looking forward to reading it.
I am currently stitching a mattress pincushion for the Hooked on Exchanges Too group, I did a practice one as I had never made one before, I will post a picture of it when I get a moment to spare.
Happy cross stitching!

I cannot believe it is nearly a month since I posted! I have been really busy at work but I have now finished my first exchange and it is ready to post for the deadline on the 30th September. It is a pinkeep for the Rotation Stitchers group and it is a first for me in a number of ways;
- First group I joined
- First exchange I have ever been involved in
- First time I have stitched on linen
- First time I have made a pinkeep
I am really looking forward to my partner receiving this and I do hope she likes what I have sent her, obviously I cannot post a picture until I know she has received it, but I will show you as soon as I can.

My sister entered her quilt in another show and won first prize again, I entered the blue embroidery in the previous post and it won first prize and the butterfly embroidery won second prize.
I have also displayed the cross stitch that my Mother entered, The Christmas Visit By Butternut Road, this won second prize, needless to say we were all quite pleased!
Updates on stitching.
I have just finished stitching my first ever exchange, I am quite excited about sending this across to the other side of the world. I have nearly finished my second exchange and I have also signed up for my third - looks like this could become addictive!
Happy stitching everyone and thankyou for reading my blog.
