One More May Exchange

I forgot to post last time my Black Cat Exchange for Kathy for spring.  It is Country Cottage Needleworks, and called "Let Love Bloom". It was stitched on linen using DMC.  It was really a joy to make.  The ric rack is hand dyed.

May and all exchanges sent and received

 This art deco daffodil was sent from me to Greta for the Blackcat Stitchery Spring Exchange.
 I stitched it on evenweave and backed it with flowery yellow material and beads along the side.
 I received this stand-up from Greta and love the colorful dragons.
 Greta also included some awesome goodies, a starbucks card, and gorgeous robin blue linen.  I am so grateful!!
 I received this elegant jar from Kathy as part of the Blackcat exchange.
 Just wanted to show you a close up of the pretty spring flower.
 Conny from the Netherlands sent me this simply beautiful pin cushion for the Seasonal Exchange.  She researched my obsession with peacocks and stitched this darling french design for me.
If you look closely you will see lace on the sides of the stitching and two beautiful and delicate pins.

Thanks everyone for viewing some of the beautiful spring pieces sent or received.  Hope you are having a wonderful spring.
