Valentine Exchange from Katrina

When I saw that this Valentine exchange was on the BB as one that was on offer for 2007, I simply couldn't resist signing up as I love hearts/heart shapes :)) So today, I have received the Valentine Exchange that Katrina has sent to me, from the SBEBB and it is gorgeous and quite perfect for me. I am not sure if you remember but Katrina had my name for the Xmas Ornie exchange. So, it was a lovely surprise to me that she had my name again and I am certainly not complaining :-)) What you can see below is the Heart Treat Bag by designers Shepherds Bush (one of my very favourite designers) that Katrina has stitched for me. It is on a lovely shade of pink linen...very soft and has the wonderful muted colours that us Shepherds Bush fans love so much :-) The heart has little beads dotted around on it, the back has been personalised with our initials. Inside the bag I had some extra treats which are also very nice and all coordinating to the stitched piece :-) It came wrapped very prettily with pink tissue paper and a chiffon ribbon that had hearts onit. I love all the attention to detail that has been put into the package. So now, I will let you look at the details of this pretty bag.....




This next picture shows the hemmed edge stitch (which I have never done yet and really must have a go) along with the pulled thread area that the ribbon is threaded through. I have a particular liking for these bits of the bag as I have not done that either yet so can only look at it both in awe. Now... I am really wanting to have a try myself but what I really need are many pairs of arms and hands (or a maid) to do all I have on my mental list ;-)




Thank-you so much once again Katrina for putting together such a nice exchange for me, I love it all :-)))

Hopefully, fingers crossed, my sent exchanges will arrive at their destinations soon and I can share them also, good job I can keep a secret :-)

Hope your day/night where-ever you are - is a nice one :)

Back soon!

Hi Helen, I'm so pleased you liked it, as soon as I received your name I just knew that I had to stitch a SB design for you :) And thank you for such nice comments about my finishing, you are too kind :)

It's beautiful. After seeing your finishing on other things, you will have no problems with these kind of finishes.
