Meet Cassie!

Cassie is a 1 year old rescue. I thought she was just coming to visit for a few days. I was wrong, she now lives here!

One down!

Lots more to go! This one is by Val's Stuff, from the october 2006 Just Cross Stitch Magazine. It is stitching on 25 count moss green lugana, over one thread. (for you non-stitcher, that means the stitches are really tiny)

Winter Seasonal Exchange

In my last post, I showed you a picture of the piece I stitched for the above mentioned exchange. To explain further, the exchange was for a seasonal (winter) band sampler and there were four of us in the exchange. It worked like this: A sent to B, B sent to C, C sent to D, and D sent to A, so everyone was surprised by who their piece was coming from and what the piece was. I have done a bunch of this type of exchange, usually involving lots more people, and the stitched pieces were always wonderful and no two were ever alike.

That is until now. Imagine my surprise, when I opened my exchange package last Friday to find the same piece I had sent! At first I thought it had been returned to me and I was cunfused, but when I looked more closely, it was a little bit different. I was stunned! and I laughed! I don't think this has ever happened. Clare obviously has excellent taste!
