I began this half cross stitch printed picture Marabeth sent me from the States. It is Nauset Light, a beautiful old American Lighthouse.When I finish it, it will either be a cushion for the beach house sofa or the sitting part of a chair. But I wonder when I will manage to finish it.
Sweet Ingrid of mii stitch organised the exchange and it was my first to take part. It was an international one so I had the chance to exchange with people from around the world. I stitched The Guardians of the Sea, a free pattern by Laura of The Little Stitcher which is my favourite summer sea themed gift to stitch.
The recipient of my stitched piece along with some more gifts was Kay in England who does not have a blog.
I could not finish her mermaids in another way rather than a frame.And I decorated the frame with sea glass and other sea finds.
I added some more gifts,some cross stitch fabric, threads,buttons and beads, a small cross stitch kit, a hair clip, a fridge magnet and some sea glass and shells. I really enjoyed making this parcel for Kay.
Valerie from France of feelepoint blog made a whole strawberry themed parcel for me.
