Tutti Frutti Swap

Back in June I'd organised the
Tutti Frutti Swap
We are now in September and it is time to show you
all these fruity-licious finishes that have kept us so busy ☺ 
 
oOo
  
First, let me show you the lovely gifts that I have received from

Albéna over at Le blog d'Albéna
 
 

A lovely frame with a fruity design called
Le Temps Des Cerises from 1 2 3 Citrouille
 
 
Albéna also included perfect little goodies:
A Tralala chart, cake recipe,
fabric,threads (one of them is from Atalie and is called Melon, how sweet!),
buttons, strawberry candle & yummy sweets!


Thank you so much Albéna.
I have loved every single items you sent me ☺

oOo

I had to send my pieces to
Justine over at Justine's Cross Stitch

I have sent two finished models.

The first one was
M'lady's Strawberries from Little House of Needleworks

I have stitched this design on 28ct Britney taupe evenweave,
2 over 2 using all preconized DMC & hand dyed Crescent Colours

Finished as a pinkeep
with red ribbon & strawberry pins from Nathy Créations
and a tutti frutti fabric for the back (which I totally forgot to take a picture of... :P)



My second finished piece is a simple little biscornu.

I found the chart while browsing the web and just loved these little strawberries!
I used 14ct white aida fabric and DMC threads and a little button for the centre



Now, for the little extras...

3D strawberry sticky notes, note book, a cherry/vanilla candle,
a strawberry shaped carrier bag, apple lip gloss, apple trinklet box, strawberry/cherry hand towel...


Light pink Permin aida fabric, strawberry & polka fabric fat quarters, DMC & overdyed threads,
buttons (from Nathy Créations) and 2 charts
(Garden Pleasures & Strawberry House from Little House of Needleworks)...


And finally
a few little fruity themed treats


oOo
Thank you to all of the lovely Ladies who kindly took part in this swap,
I truly hope you enjoyed it

I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hope everyone receives their goodies
in due course


Toodles,
Mii
