Prairie schooler exchange round3 from Angela

Coming home from Budapest I was pleasently surprised by this gorgeous pinkeep and a card.
It's stitched by my round 3 partner, Angela. I love it and it will get a special place among my stitcher's collection. Thanks so much Angela for this great exchange piece!
Design stitched from Prairie Schooler book DEF on 28 count white Lugana with recommended threads.

Pink roses

I used this pictures box to make a little gift for a friend. She likes pink and roses so I used this freebie for the stitching piece. It's stitched on 32 count Zweigart using Carrie's Creation Pink Taffy and the House of Embroidery. Happily she liked her gift.

Wish you all a good weekend!

Prairie Schooler Exchange Round 2

This week the lovely bellpull arrived with a card. Isn't gorgeous? After weeks of waiting I did not received the exchange piece from my partner. That's why the "angel" stitcher Shay offered to stitch for me. It's so generous of her and I'm so happy with the gift. Thanks so much, Shay!

LHN alphabet rhyme

When I saw this cute chart of LHN I knew that I'm going to stitch it. Who doesn't know this rhyme? I remember singing it with my children when they were at the primary school. Of course we did it in Dutch. It sounds like this: abcdefg, hijklmnop, qrstuvw, xyz doen ook nog mee. Van abc tot xyz, dat zijn de letters van het alfabet.

Loosely translated:
xyz also play.
From abc to xyz,
These are the letters of the alphabet

There are different versions of this rhyme. For framing I used a slate because I think it fits together. Thanks for visiting me and I really appreciate your comments.

This piece is stitched on 36 count ivory Edinburgh linen using the recommended threads.
