Needle Minder Exchange



Hello Peeps!


Time to show you the lovely makes that have been made & received
for the Needle Minder Exchange I have organised to keep us busy this summer

I believe it was a great success and that all participants had fun!
Here is the list of all the lovely ladies that took part:
Karyn
Justine
Bethan
LeShawn
Carrie
Debbie
Leonore
Kaye and Lorynn

OoOoO

So this is what I've sent to Carrie

Summer Crazy | Fun in the Sun by Lizzie Kate
Stitched on 18 ct Rustico Aida fabric from Sewitall, 2 over 1
Using DMC threads 
 
 
 

Finished off as an ornament
Simply fixed on a plate I got from my local Hobby Craft
Thanks Andrea for the idea ;)
 
 

 
 
Sadly, I forgot to take picture of the needle minder and the skeins of DMC
Here is picture from the website, this is a Zappy Dots
 
 

OoOoO
 
And these are the cute goodies I have received from Karyn!
- Minus the blue DMC skein, as it is now being used for a new project, but this is for another post! -
 
 
 
 
Thank you sweetie! I love my needle minder and your little make will definitely
be displayed when Christmas come :)
 
A big thank you to all who took part.
 
Toodles,
Mii
