Exchange FOR Marie-P

Hi, how are you?
This weekend, Tass and I stayed over at "Hoshinoko Yakata" with his friends.
As well as their mums are my good stitching friends.

Although we couldn't see Jupiter from the big astronomical because the weather wasn't good, we could have wonderful time together!

By the way, I heard that my friend
Marie-P has received her parcel from Japan, I share some shots of our exchange piece.

We decided to do exchange for Easter in 2010, but as you may know I wasn't well for a long time, and so I've received her wonderful pinkeep last year but I hadn't been sending out mine to her for a long long time...

I always become in poor health between Spring and Summer, so I've started to stitch this piece for her in winter, though I couldn't finish finishing until now.

I stitched
"Easter Bunny" © By The Bay Needleart on lavender linen, and framed in small white frame.
I used lavender color cloth for the background of this piece, and trimmed with lace.
And then added a small ribbon and pearl bead.

I had stitched two pieces so I presented another one for my friend's baby.

It's not so good frame actually, so added name on cloth with stamp, and added lace on them, too.

It was so good to hear that Marie-P received package safely and she was so happy to have it!
Thank you Marie for your lovely e-mail, and sorry for this long delay.

Take care and have a lovely weekend!
