I received a huge package in the mail late yesterday afternoon from my exchange partner for the SBEBB What's the Buzz Exchange. It was sent from Jeanne from Willow Tree Stitching and she did an absolutely fantastic job with everything. I opened up the package to first find a mesh project back, perfectly suited for the exchange with a strip of bee skeps fabric on the front, which she had made herself! And inside were endless goodies, including a package of Jelly Belly's, a lovely quilt themed magnetic note pad, a card which she had also made from fabric, and of course the pièce de résistance, a beautiful pinkeep and scissorfob with a lovely pair of Gingher scissors attached.
Jeanne commented that she used nail polish on the pinheads so that it better matched the pinkeep. That much attention to detail is amazing to me!
Jeanne's stitching and finishing is exquisite! I am in awe of all her crafting abilities, sewing, cardmaking, stitching, finishing, cordmaking.....wow! And I feel truly spoiled! Thank you Jeanne, so much for such a wonderful package! Your crafting talents are awesome!!
I received a message from Cathy that she received my exchange that I had sent to her. I stitched a Shepherd's Bush design and made it into a little pillow ornament. I really think I need to polish up my finishing skills....
