More Stitching

Yes I've finished the May Heart BOM for the SewBuds group and just in time as the name is drawn this week and it'll have to be mailed off ASAP (PRAY THERE IS NO POSTAL DISRUPTION)!

Now remember the Chain of Hearts DYOB activity I had posted earlier?  If not here are the blocks I prepared - heart for myself and the 8" square was for swapping within the group.

Mine to keep

Sent out to Rosemary in Tasmania

And here is what I received from Ritva of Finland - ain't it just PRETTY???  I don't do pastels so along with her intricate embroidery I also get something I don't do myself - I'm more a jewel toned person or more subdued earthy type!  LOL!

Received from Ritva of Finland

And here are the two blocks I have that one day I will be assembling DYOB 1 and soon to be caught up on DYOB 2 and hopefully one or two more to participate in so I can sneak a feather from Margreet's hat and stitch these into a "fabric" book with same swap blocks across from each other.  This way one can compare the individual's interpretation of the specific stitch called and enjoy the beauty of both versions!!!  Yeppers that's my plan!
