I did manage to take pictures of the items I made for a Christmas swap sponsored by the Sew Delightful Designs embroidery Yahoo Group. This is the first embroidery swap I participated in and the only thing I knew about my swap partner, Leola from VT, was that she likes Sunbonnet Sue. I sent her a hot pad and apron with Sue designs, 3 FSL ornaments, and 2 hand towels. All of the designs are from Embroidery Library. Sorry for the quality of the pictures, they were taken using the new Fuji camera I got for Christmas. My old camera did not have 1/10 the bells and whistles of this one and I am struggling reading the manual to learn what I am doing.
Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the front of the hot pad which was the same color as the apron. It had a red work embroidered Sunbonnet Sue building a snowman.
My swap partner Leola sent me a lovely Christmas fat quarter, 5 FSL ornaments and a bar of Lemon Verbena soap made by a local company where she lives in Vermont. The ornaments now hang on our Family Room tree.
Everyone posted the swaps they received on the Sew Delightful Designs group photo pages. I was delighted with the results and feel more confident about participating in the future.
Oh Katie - I just love the embroidery you did! Bet your swap partner was SO happy to get those cuties! And, the ornaments you got are pretty too! So glad you're blogging a bit more (smile)!ReplyDelete
