Spring Exchange FROM Marie-P

I have mentioned that Marie-P. and I were going to Spring (Easter) Exchange, but I was really ill in the last Spring and so even though I was stitching a little by little from earlier, I couldn't make and complete anything for her...
Moreover, I'm sorry that I hadn't been showing you her beautiful work on my blog for ages.
I apologize for you, Marie.
I will planning something surprise for you one day!

By the way, here is her wonderful Spring pinkeep!
How lovely this is, I love this Prairie Schooler design so much and wanted to stitch one day as like she did!
So I was so surprised and very happy to receive this so much, you know at that time I was so ill so I was truly happy to have this and so I take this pinkeep to my bed room when I sleep and put it on beside my pillow some days :)

She trimmed edges with flowery lace (sorry I forgot the name...) and put while pearl pins.
And on top, she added very springlike colour organza ribbon.
How sweet colour combination this is!
I really love this, Thank you so much, Marie!

On the back side, she used Easter egg's print fabric, it's so rare for us Japanese, because Easter is not major yet in Japan.
So we Japanese stitch friends searched and told me the meaning of Easter and why bunnies relates for Easter? etc...
But I already forgot it... (lol)

Anyway, her stitching and finishing is just perfect!!!
I really admire for her works, if you had chance to see her works IRL, you would be amazed!

I organized photos for blog, so I will update sometime later.
Take care and have a lovely weekend!

Thank you so much for your visiting!

Hi Yuko, A friend gave me the link to your scissor blog and I see that you are no longer selling them. I was wondering if you could tell me somewhere else I could purchase them off the internet. They are beautiful and I was wanting to get some for my quilting friends for Christmas. I love all your needlework, its very beautiful. Sue-Anne, Australia.
