Fair and Square Round 2

Well i posted my squares for the Fair and Square Exchange 3/4 weeks ago now. Unfortunately my partner for the exchange moved house and i didn't have her new address and she isnt having her mail redirected so i don't know if she'll ever get these. Very annoying indeed! So i thought i'd just post these pictures of what i stitched to prove that i did stitch them!! I read that my exchange partner liked houses and trees and samplers so found this chart, which i had to ammend to fit 50x50. It is a freebie from Les Grilles de Maryse. I really enjoyed stitching this and might stitch it again sometime.Ive made good progress on Donna's RR this week! I know it's not due for posting until the 7th October but im keen to get it finished so that i can work on some other things without this being at the back on my mind.
Today is my mum and dad's anniversary and as i found out at dinner the other night that my Dad reads my blog i shall take this opportunity to say "Happy Anniversary to you both!"

Very nice squares. I was in the craft shop (again) and they were selling discontinued flower threads for 20p each! Don't know if flower threads work for cross stitch, but I bought 6 skeins for myself!

Looks great Cheryl, hope she does receive them, you'd think she would have let you know? Oh well, it looks great anyway. RR is just fabulous! I can't wait to get it back to me!

The fair and square pieces are lovely. Sorry that you posted them before I could post the new address...my move was not planed to happen it was an emergency to take care of my daughter after she was in a very serious car accident and broke her back. All I had time to do was pack and notify the bank and credit card company. So sorry you finished them so quickly and I didn't have access to get online with my new address until they were already sent.

Carol said...

Your F&S square is so beautiful. She left no forwarding address?? How can that be? I will pray that they do arrive safely!!
