My exchange TO Katie

I put alot of efert into making it and my favourite bit on it is the bows and the stitching. I made a needle roll and put the lace on the ends myself with my own idea. I did it all on the sewing machine and it was good fun stuffing it like a hotdog then I rolled it like plasterscene. I surprised my Mum with what I did.




This is the back........




Did you guess it is a Mary Kirby?? I had 2 of France so I kept the one from Carols present and used my other for Katie. Thats why I chose this one from my stash to do. I want to do mine now to go with the pinkeep.




I sent Katie some presents to they are on her blog she liked this exchange as much as me so we are both happy :)

I have something else to show you which will be on my blog soon. Please leave a comment if you like our first exchange.

Look down from this and you will see Katies to ME :))

I am so very impressed with your stitching and finishing skills Amy! Since I get to see them first hand...they are quite exceptional for a young girl just 8 y.o. I don't know if Katie could have done this all by herself! You did a spectacular, smashing job of it all and Katie loves it!
Big Hugs to you sweetheart and you two will have to continue e-mailing each other now!

Hi Amy, I just found your blog! You've done wonderful stitching and finishing :) I especially love this needleroll you sent to Katie and the pinkeep "Home", it's so pretty! My daughter who is 12 years old just had her hair cut yesterday and it looks very much like yours, it's also cut in layers :)

Hi Amy!
I looked at both your exchange piece and the one Katie did and they are both wonderful! You girls should be so proud of yourselves. It's nice to see another generation of stitching pals forming.
If you girls post what you like, I'm sure I can find some more goodies in my stash.
