I have been busy with exchanges I have some to share with you. Boo Moon designed by Val's Stuff was stitched for Terry for the Fall exchange in the All season Ornament Exchange, it was from the Just Cross-stitch Magazine Halloween issue 2009. The Ornament she stitched for me was double sided with the Witch and the Jack-o-lantern, stitched on my favorite colour purple she finished the sides with beads.
The Halloween ornament I stitched for Sadie in the HOE Halloween exchange, this was also taken from the Just Cross-stitch Halloween issue it was designed by La-D-Da.
I also received an exchange fro Australia from Lisa but I have forgotten to take a picture she put her stitching on top of a tin so watch this space for the Picture.
We are having problems with our Internet connection and I am unable to use our Desktop computer at the moment so I am having to use my Husbands Laptop which is not ideal as I hate it.

Finished Tudor Rose

I have finished the Tudor Rose Necklace I did on the Jill Devon Masterclass in June, I am off to the Knitting and Stitching Show in London on Friday so I wanted to finish the necklace to show her I am very pleased with the end result my Hubby even said it had a Tudor influence not knowing the name of the necklace.
We are off to London tomorrow for 3 days, I have booked some theatre tickets as well, we are off to see Sister Act and Oliver, I enjoy going to the Theatre when we are in London, my feet are aching already in anticipation of all the walking we will do.
