Seasonal Exchange for Carol!



This the exchange I stitched for Carol as part of our year long seasonal exchange group starting with summer. Carol is my partner for the whole year! This design is called summer stitches by Annalee Waite Designs and I finished it into a no sew cube. I also sent extra's with it, but forgot to take a picture. Carol has some wonderful pictures on her blog though. Now, it's on to Autumn. Thanks so much for the compliments on my box finish! I love them and appreciate them so much.

What a priviledge it is to be a stitcher and share with other stitchers...
