An exchange and progress

Last November I went to Nuneaton for a GTG with the girls over at Needlecraft Haven and an exchange is organised while we are there.  We get told what the item is, this time a bookmark,  but no idea who you'll be sending to until postcards have been written, mixed up and picked.
We go off, pick out design, stitch it and send it or in my case, lose the postcard, spend weeks looking for it, get everyone to post their answers to the questions in the hope that the person you think is says the one thing you remember which she does, get worried because you can't find a design to start with  and then start stitching it 10 days before it's due to be sent!

I thought my person was Julie and I turned out to be right 


and this is the beauty I received from Kate.   It's the first time I've ever received something beaded in an exchange when it was a beading based one


And lastly this past weekends progress on Toy Gatherer, I'm about halfway across the bottom border now fingers crossed I'll get it finished this weekend and make a start ont eh sheep

I love my bookmark, well done on finding a freesia chart, not the most common of flowers that are charted.
Kate made such a fantastic bookmark for you, its amazing.
