SBEBB Specific Designer Exchange for Tanya

Tanya finally received the LHN exchange I sent her over a month ago!! I was about to start stitching a replacement because I thought it got lost in the post.
When I was deciding what to stitch for this exchange, I received this little freebie from a ONS, and I knew I had to stitch it for this exchange. I finished it as a small cushion with a ribbon on top (that ribbon must look a mess after a month of traveling ). The fabric I sent is the same one I used for the backing and I also sent some threads and a LHN chart.
I liked the way it turn fact I liked it so much that yesterday I finished another piece the same way.

Tanya finalmente recibió el paquete que le envie para el intercambio de LHN...demoro un mes en llegar!! Ya estaba a punto de comenzar a bordar un reemplazo para envierselo pues pense que este ya se había perdido en el correo.
Cuando estaba eligiendo qué diseño bordarle, me llego un freebie junto con unos pedidos que hice por internet, apenas lo vi supe que eso seria lo que le bordaria. Lo terminé como una pequeña almohadita con un lazo encima (por cierto, ese lazo debe verse desastroso luego de su larga travesia ). La tela que le envie es la misma que usé para la parte trasera de la amohadita, además incluí algunos hilos y un grafico de LHN.
Me gusto como me más ayer terminé otro cojincito de la misma manera.

Design: Thankful by Little House Needleworks
Fabric: 32ct White Lugana
Threads: Crescent Colours
Started: 20. October. 2007
Finished: 21. October. 2007

And here is the piece I finished yesterday. It's a design from this years JCS Christmas issue. I first wanted to finish this one as a cube...but that didn't work out, my cube looked kind of wonky so I took it apart and finish is as a cushion instead.
Today I have a get together with some local cross stitchers, we are having a little exchange for Christmas and this is what I made for it. It didn't have to be a cross stitch gift but we are all cross stitchers so I thought it would be nice to receive something stitched.

Esto es lo que terminé ayer. Es un diseño que vino en la edición de Navidad de la revista Just Cross Stitch. Al principio quería terminarlo como un cubo...pero me quedó fatal, así que lo desbaraté y lo terminé como un cojincito.
Hoy me reuniré con algunas bordadoras de Lima, haremos un pequeño intercambio por Navidad y este cojín será para una de ellas. El regalo no tenía que ser bordado pero ya que es un intercambio de bordadoras pensé que sería bonito regalar algo de punto cruz.

Design: Peace by Country Cottage Needleworks
Fabric: 32ct White Lugana
