[SBEBB] Spring House/Garden Exchange FOR Chris

Hi everyone, thank you again for "get well soon" wishes for me!
Thanks to you, I have been doing fine, this week!

Here are some photos to share of my first SBEBB exchange to Chris.
I joined "Spring House/Garden" theme, and I stitched Prairie Schooler's design.

It looks like pinkeep, but I made it into a small mirror!
Here is a photo of mirror which I've made for her.

I had made a small mirror with PS Autumn design before, too.
But I really love this Spring one in Pink, so I would like to make one for myself, too!


I added very light beautiful pink lace both on top and the bottom's blank area, I think they made a good accent and made this mirror feminine and romantic!

Luckily I had quite similar coloured ribbon in my stash, so used it for around the edge and tied a ribbon in a bow on top.

Here is a close up photo of backing fabric which I used for this time.

I think the colour matches so well all together, and pink made me feel very Spring time!
So I'm satisfied how this turned out, very much!

I saw that she loved this small mirror and what I've sent her very much on her blog, it made me very happy, as well!

Mine hasn't arrived yet, but I think it will reach me soon!
So everyday it's very exciting to check the mail box nowadays!

I know quite many people around me (include online friends) have been ill recently...
As I was miserable when I was ill for 2 weeks, I hope not that the same things happen to anybody else!
Please take care of yourself, everyone! :D
