I have been a member  ( I have two accounts) of Postcrossing over 2 years, I love receiving Postcards from all over the world, and sending them. But I thought what a brilliant idea to receive some from my friends so I set up a Postcard exchange on A Crafty Natter and I have received some wonderful postcards the exchange still isn't over yet as I have some coming from overseas.
The Royal mail did destroy one of them, but it is the first one that it has happened to in two years.
It is a wonderful cheap way of sending exchanges.

Stitched for charity quilt

Here is some actual stitching by me, but not for me, it is for the charity quilt we are doing over on a Crafty Natter for the Cats P raffle which is in September on their open day. When my friend Colly has made it up I will share a photo of it all finished in all it's glory.
I am plodding on with my crochet though and my hexie quilt still making up the flowers.I have just had some more fabric from a lady at the stitchy group I go to, lots of Laura Ashley fabric some is the same age as myself!
Thank you for continuing to visit and leaving  comments. I just wish I had more to share!

This is my Speciality stitch RR, that I have received back today, I took part in this RR with some friends on the Crafty Natter forum.
It's an RR with a difference instead of the usual cross stitch, we did a Band sampler and we all stitched 3 bands each and at least one band had to be cutwork.
We were supposed to do the first three bands, I have still yet to finish my top band, and I will add two more at the bottom.

I chose to use a linen called Copper, sorry can't remember any other details about the fabric, and some basic colours which I would like.
I have to say I am really pleased with the result.

An update on my hexie quilt, I have over fifty hexie flowers now and still going on with the fabric, just received some from Norway today.

I am loving doing these!!

Thank you for stopping by
