Summer Autumn Winter Spring

As you might know, my Mum Veronica does not have a blog. So, now all 4 of her Seasonal Exchanges are completed and have been received by Becky :)........I am showing you, for her, what she stitched for the Seasonal Exchange Group that a few of us have been part of.


 In the order they were sent ... starting below with ........

SUMMER : Ewe & Eye & Friends 'Be Industrious' with Veronica's own colour choices throughout, finished as a tray with a little fob ( Shepherds Bush design used for that) and a matching pincushion pot :)

AUTUMN : Helen Phillips 'The New Cross Stitch Sampler Book' a Halloweeen design was chosen and was stitched basically as stated with just a couple of colour changes and slight design change (the cat). On the bottom of one of the tassels is sitting a little witches cat :-)) Finished as a Hanging Ornament and included one of the little felt 'field mice' made also by Veronica .

WINTER : The same Helen Phillips book was used. The finish this time was a Treat Bag, Shepherds Bush NR style......(please excuse my most rubbish bag picture, ooops sorry Mum !! ) A little extra this time was the country prim style Heart topped off with a bit of string and a MOP heart :)

SPRING : Just Nan 'Spring! Pillow' Many of you will know this sweet design? Stitched on a soft pinky/lilac linen, finished as a pillow with a matching 1/1 wee fob :-))

I shall also show all 4 exchanges Veronica has received from Isa in France who stitched for her, once the last one has arrived. (We do have until June 15th to send Spring but my Mum is an early bird ;-)) Anyway for once I am early!! Yes, that has surprised you hasn't it LOL ;-)) as I actually stitched my 'Spring' one before Winter LOL and I shall send it once the Winter one does get to Italy :)) Soon, I hope soooooooooon!! Can you tell I wonder about the postal service ;-))

Have fun !! Thanks for calling by :-))

EDITED TO ADD: My Mum (Veronica) has asked me to say a big thank-you to you all for taking the time to comment on her work, she is really thrilled by them all :-))

Helen I see where you and Su get your talent! When the three of you get together for stitching it must be an amazing time! Your mother's stitching is absolutely gorgeous, and so is her finishing. She has a lot of creative talent!

What a lovely selection of pieces - I especially liked the Halloween sampler with the felt mouse - what a cutie! And of course the beehive, given my obsession with them ... I have that chart in my stash, I must try to restrain myself from starting it now, as I loved the finishing idea...
