Thanks to some sort of magic, or maybe a twisting of time, my exchange has already reached Missy Ann (of Deep Inside Missy). And (thank goodness!), she really does like it!
I stitched the Sweet Pea Biscornu by Faby Reilly for Missy Ann. However, I changed the bottom since she said she didn’t really like yellow. And, honestly, the entire time I was stitching this, a little voice in my head keep screaming at me “There is toooooo much yellow!” But, Missy Ann assures me that there isn’t. 🙂
The bottom is just the central swirl from the design, and then a Mill Hill treasure stitched at each corner. The same Mill Hill treasures are used instead of a button in the centre.
For extras, I included some Canada stickers,a FQ of Halloween fabric (since Missy Ann loves Halloween), a package of pretty sticky note, a skein of the Thread Gatherer’s Shepherd’s Silk fibre, and three small cuts of hand-dyed fabric from a local-ish dyed named Ayrloom Fabrics. (You can find their fabrics and threads on eBay if you are interested. I found out about them thanks to Kathy from Kathy’s Sit and Stitch.)
(I do apologize for the poor pictures. I bought myself a new, inexpensive camera to use on outings with Baby Man, and I haven’t figured out how to take a decent indoor picture with it yet.)
I was dreading the end of this exchange, but now I kinda want to do another one. 🙂
