Really, to set up the exchange is not a lot of work. And it has been a lot of fun, from learning about different fabrics and techniques at the beginning to seeing the beautiful stitching that you have gifted one another. There has been excellent participation and checking in to the thread, and most appreciated of all, everyone respected the deadline! I certainly had the cream of the crop sign up to participate! Thank you! :rose:

This is my wonderful bookmark from Kristy!!!! :D

I love it. Kristy chose this design as she loves Fall. Beautiful. happy design :applesauce:
The colours are vibrant and the stitches so neat! Kristy lined it with a soft matching cloth and tiny, weeny stitches.


Thank you, Kristy. I do appreciate all the time involved and I shall cherish it!

Thank you Linda too for organizing this exchange.

I did have a word with Linda about this a few weeks ago and wondered if any of you who have participated in this exchange would join a similar one but with an Autumn/Fall theme? Or are you all stitched out? :wink: xxx

I think that's a great idea! :applesauce: Spring and Autumn (Fall) are my favourite seasons and well worth celebrating. :D

The Bookmark for Poppy stitched by Kirsty is fantastic. :wub: :whoop:

I am so happy that you like it Poppy! I was worried to death about it, but I just couldn't help it. While I do love the Spring it always makes me long so for the Fall! I freely admit that Fall is my absolute favorite season!

Another beautiful bookmark! I think a fall/autumn exchange is a lovely idea. For me, personally, it is a nice break from my BAPs.

Linda Rose wrote:In Canada the Spring Equinox occurred just yesterday. I think that is cause for celebration. How about an exchange of either a bookmark or greeting card among members? They are both quick to stitch, have a wide variety of patterns to choose from, lay flat for ease in mailing, and above all are absolutely lovely to receive. If you are interested, please let me know. Sign up will continue to April 21, with the understanding that your finished piece will be mailed no later than June 5th, enough time to be delivered before it is officially summer. You are also agreeing to upload a picture of your received piece into the exchange thread.

It would be nice if we kept to a colorful spring theme. A card should be left blank so that it may be used by the recipient as s/he wishes. No preferences will be taken - let's all be absolutely delighted to have a stitched piece from a fellow forum member. Please indicate your interest in participating by giving your name, the country you live in, and mailing availability. I will sort out who will be mailing to whom once I have a better understanding of the level of interest. Hoping to hear from you!
