Summer Exchange for Myrna




Myrna has let me know that she has received her last seasonal exchange so I can safely post now. This is Hide and Seek by Brittercup Designs made into a flat fold. I left off the words and the backing fabric is red and white gingham. I decided just to keep it very simple and added just a bow to the side. I think watermelons are very much a part of summer and thought this was really cute especially since Myrna has a trio of black cats. The second picture is the rest of the exchange. I went with a little patriotic theme. I hope you will enjoy it Myrna!

How was every one's holiday? Mine was pretty good-spent the day with the kids and and took them to the movies to see Transformers 2. It's back to work for me today-though only for one day and then off for three!

Sharon this is so pretty, and being a cat lover I'm going to have to find some of these kitty patterns. You did a lovely job, and I agree watermelons are definitely a part of summer. My husband couldn't make it through summer without having one in the refrigerator at all times!

That is really cute Sharon. It's amazing to me how this designer can evoke something meaningful with so few stitches sometimes - she is very artistic. Congrats on your recent finishes!
