Monochromatic Exchange with Jinger!

Awhile ago, Jinger and I decided to do a personal monochromatic exchange together. Our deadline was July and the other day was the great send off day. She sent me this gorgeous hanging ornament done on lavender linen with purple haze WDW. I am not sure of the pattern name-though I have seen it before. I love the fuzzy purple thread she used to make the hanger with. She also sent me some purple fabric quarters, two purple votive candles and a lovely purple notebook that I can use to keep up with my finished works. Everything was quite lovely! What made this exchange even more fun is that Jinger I both live in the same city! Thanks so much Jinger-this was fun!

This is what I sent Jinger. I did a pin keep/scissor pocket for her. I used a freebie pattern called Moroccan tile I believe. It is usually used as a biscornu. I did it in an Atalie silk thread called Bombay. It was stitched on 30 ct. R & R linen called parchment. I sent a couple of charts off Jinger's wish list along with some threads and a thread holder by Monique. It was a pleasure to put together this exchange for you!
