The exchange has landed!

Checked today on the All Seasons Exchange Blog to find that Lisa has got my ornament so I can now share the pics of it with you. It took about 5 days to get to Australia which I was very impressed with.

Lisa also likes Quaker patterns so I did this little tree pattern which is called Quaker Tree Third – it is a freebie from The Workbasket site which I have had in my patterns file for a while. They have some wonderful Quaker designs and quite a few freebies including two more trees.

The fabric is a sparkly evenweave which is part of my Xmas ornament stash and the thread is from the Silk Mill.

Here is the back of the ornament – I have used the same little scissor charm that I put on all the scissor keeps that I made for the girls this year.

Have just got back from a lovely weekend at Glastonbury Abbey. Thanks to everyone in Team Falchion for a brill time (especially Trish for the food and Alixx for the blacksmith’s forge – the kids were very impressed!)

Will have to post pics from Wales first (mucho stitching!) then get some of this weekend’s pics sorted later this week when I have more time but here is a little taste of the Abbey with another one of my architecture shots.

    • Yes it is really nice – not sure which colour it is from the Silk Mill ( think it might be number 4087 Thistle but did not write number on card when I re-wound it!) but I love their threads and now use them more than DMC or Anchor as they have such a lovely sheen to them. They cost more per skein but if you buy them in sets they come down in price.
      Glad you like the piece – have signed up to do an Autumn / Halloween piece next with the group.

  1. I love my ornie Alison and shall treasure it. I just love the way you personalized the back for me and added that lovely scissor charm.

    • Yes I love those little charms – first found them at a stitching show and used them all up on my scissor keeps for friends so got a new supply just recently from a local craft shop. Have got lots of Xmas ones as well that I use on cards and ornamanents. I am very glad that you like the ornament I sent. The pinkeep you made me has been well used and well travelled! It went to Glastonbury at the weekend and to Nottingham this week.
