Colour Exchange

This lovely pin mattress has come from Rachael for the colour exchange on Exchange Heaven. My chosen colour was green and as you can see from the photo, it perfectly matches the walls in the front room. She couldn't have matched it better if she had come to visit.
Rachael personalised it for me on the bottom, and has put the date on the back.

This was a real delight to take out of the packaging, it is beautifully finished and I love it.
On a personal note, after feeling slightly better on Friday, I got worse again over the weekend. However, the last two nights I have had better sleep, so I am now on the mend. I just need to get the energy levels back up and then I should be steaming on all cylinders. Hopefully, I should get back to normal production on stitching and knitting. I have a lot to catch up on after a week or more of inactivity.
Thank you to everyone for their good wishes, they have been much appreciated.

That's a lovely gift to receive. I haven't tried one of those before.

Hope you are back at 100% shortly.

I agree about the match. It's perfect.

Viruses are amazingly devastating for such tiny creatures. Be sure you're drowning the little bugs-fluid is the solution to viral pollution.

That is a lovely present - I have not tried that kind of finish for a pin keep yet - always think it looks complicated! Hope you are feeling better soon - thanks for visiting my blog and for your lovely comments.

What a lovely gift, and it does match perfectly (I love those greens). Keep mending and don't push too soon -- no relapses :)
