For the Birds Exchange Received!

My goodness, Becky is really on the ball....she finished and sent this lovely exchange piece already!!

The design is "Twitter Blue," from the 2009 JCS Ornament issue. She changed the color, and stitched it on 40-ct. Edinburg linen (I'm totally in awe of anyone who can stitch so beautifully on such a high count fabric!), and filled it with crushed walnut shells. Here it is posing with my favorite Ginghers and a scissor fob I made for them using some of my husband's grandmother's old beads. I thought the theme and colors were quite appropriate!!

Thank you so much, Becky!! Your stitching is lovely, and I'm honored to have a piece of it for my very own!

Now, back to working on MY exchange piece.... *blush*

Lovely little exchange from Becky. Love your fob. It suits the piece perfectly.
Great photo of the little one after her first taste of cereal. Priceless isn't it.
Very cool pirate sampler. Look forward to your progress.
