Wedding Ring Pillow

Over the weekend I caught up with my friend Tracey, who gets married on Monday next week. I invited Tracey, my Mum and MIL Heather around for a drink and a catch up since we missed Tracey's hen's party while we were in Melbourne. I gave Tracey the ring pillow I'd made for her and Willie and she was thrilled with it.

Tracey and I

I got to see Tracey's beautiful wedding dress yesterday as I went with her and her mum for her final fitting. She has chosen a gorgeous style and I know she will be a very radiant bride next Monday.

One of my recent exchanges has arrived - it didn't have to travel very far, only about three hours down the road to my dear friend Kath! We thought it was so funny that I received her name for the SBEBB Smalls exchange. I chose to stitch a design for Kath that I'd been wanting to stitch for awhile now, Drawn Thread's Sampler Necessaire. After seeing how Anita had finished this project in her stitching album, I decided to finish the main piece into a needleroll too.

I also tucked Kath's October ornament into the parcel, Christmas Ewe by Elizabeth's Designs

I almost finished the stitching on my needleroll last night, only one band to stitch now, I'd forgotten how detailed the Shepherd Bush charts can be :)

Bye for now!

How fun that you had your own private hen party for Tracey.
Your exhange pieces are so pretty and how special that they are for someone so close by.
