Exchanges arrived

I heard Carin received my bread-basket for the "color-chain" exchange from the dutch Borduurhoekje-group. Carin her favourite colors are autumn-colors and I had this wonderful fabric in my stash, with autumn-leaves. It was my first attempt of a bread-basket, and I really like the way it turned out. I've stiffened it with "Fast2fuse". Wow, that stuff is great!

I finally got a message from Su, that my "What's the buzz"-exchange for the
SBEBB, arrived at her doorstep! I started to get worried, because it took a while to get to the UK. I've stitched this cute bee from "4 my boys" and
finished it as a flatfold. Su wrote in her blog, that it was perfect for
her!

This week I also finished the stitching for the Halloween-exchange
(borduurhoekje) and the stitchers-pocket exchange (SBEBB), so I can finish them also. Tonight I'm going to start the "Autumn"-part for the Seasonal exchange....

Tomorrow-morning the gardeners are coming again. The good part of it is,
that I have to stay at home and get a lot of stitching, sewing and finishing
done!

Hugs, Simone

I love the basket you made. The colors are gorgeous! Was there a tutorial you followed to make the basket?
