Quaker Quarterly Exchange 18

One of these days I may learn the secrets to posting photos on Blogger how I want them posted. Following, in who knows what order, are pictures of my latest finish both in stitching and card-crafting. The card accompanies the stitched piece when I send it out, telling the recipient what fabric and fiber(s) I used in the piece, and I think it's one of my better efforts—I liked it so much I actually photographed it! It's just a stamped image on a light-colored scrapbooking paper, adhered to a grey card made from scrapbooking cardstock with a linen-like finish to it.

The stitched piece is on Lugana 32-count White, stitched with Needle Necessities "Ashes to Ashes" and a couple of DMC greys for the personalization (the recipient's initials in the darker shade and mine in the lighter one). The other photo shows the backing fabric for the pinkeep. I "made" the pins (which can't really be seen, unfortunately, in these photos) by purchasing two different styles (round and teardrop) of corsage pins and those long sewing pins with the yellow "flower" heads on them, then dipped the pinheads in flat-black model paint. The theme for this particular exchange was "charcoal," and I think I succeeded. (It looks like I might finally have the pics in the right order! Let's hope they stay that way.)


  1. Hi Darla,
    A lovely exchange as all ways. Great job.

  2. Darla, I love your pinkeep. It is really lovely. Lots of Love Patti xxx
