Friendship Exchange


My exchange partner has now received this, so you can now see what I stitched.

I printed the chart from freepatterns.com and stitched it on Aida using DMC stranded cotton.
I backed it with some pink polycotton and put wadding in the centre to give it a bit of body and made a little hanger.

I am pleased to say the recipient was very happy with it, so I am too.
I was very disappointed this morning to get up and discover the elves hadn't been and cleaned up overnight. This has meant that I will just have to do the housework myself. I am hoping then to be able to have a quiet afternoon stitching whilst watching Six Nations Rugby.
