Why don't you join in the fun of the next swap next month Wendy? They are really easy to make. It is the deciding of what to do that takes the longest I think........ perhaps that is my mistake? I think too much?

affraid Well, how much 'damage' can she do at this time of day in spotty? Don't they close at 5 pm on Tuesdays? Hmmm, wonder what thread I have to start sewing my design with, or maybe I might have to go shopping too??? "Some people' will make up any excuse just to visit the spotted place, me included!!!

Evelyn – I just wanted to let you know, I mailed your embroidered mug rug today. I hope you like. I don’t do much embroidery and when I do I agonize over it. As with all hand work, it’s so time consuming. Please……just let me know when it arrives.

Of course I will Jen and a BIG THANK YOU in advance. I am sure it will be just lovely!!! I too (along with others here) have a very limited knowledge of hand embroidery and will be doing my best so as not to disappoint my swap partner (too much). I figure, if I do it to a standard I would be happy to receive then hopefully it will be acceptable by others. This particular swap is going to be stretching my skills to the maximum - and isn't that what it's all about? Trying something new and learning and having fun as we go?


But now of course - sadly this means I will NOT be the recipient of Tarnyia's stitchery and what ever it was that was so 'yummy' she was sending to her swap partner!! Sad This now calls for an almost midnight snack to get over the shock - a small bar of dark chocolate maybe? Anyone want to share with me?

ooooh that means I am still in with a chance........and I have to say, hand embroidery is not something I do..... Embarassed
I asked my sister for her critique...and said "does this look like a child did it"? and she said YES affraid so I apologise in advance to my mug rug recipient and ...the back is beautiful!
