Some piccies

I can now show pics of some of the exchanges I have sent out recently as they have arrived at their new homes. First is a biscornu - the theme was 'Anything Summer' so I chose Barbara Ana's Summer Biscornu. I used a linen I had in my stash that is exactly the colour of wet sand. The 2nd is a biscornu for a Just Nan themed exchange for Stitching Exchanging. I used her Beach Roses designs but didn't remember to take a pic of it before I sent it off, You can see it here though.

Here is a pic of the lovely Little House Needleworks Exchange I received from Lynn - again with Stitching Exchanging

I also have a pic of my current WIP. A Messerschmitt from A & L Designs' Sky Ace Series. I stitched a Lancaster bomber for DS a while ago, but this one is for DH. It is stitching up quite quickly and thank goodness is smaller than the bomber. You can see the bomber in my webshots album here

I thought I'd leave you with some pics of some Aussie natives from my garden. A Kangaroo Paw, Hardenbergia (the purple one) and some Grevilleas.

The fabric is stunning for the plane - and I love the spring flowers - reminds me I should take pics of the few flowers in our garden!
