My Blackbird Designs exchange on the Friends Through Friends blog arrived from Ronel in South Africa this afternoon. Ronel stitched me a design from the pattern called Small Token and finished it into a stunning needlebook. She stitched the design on 30 ct. off white Irish linen over two. She changed the colors and I love the colors she chose for the design. The fabric on the needlebook is lovely as well...love the flowers. Ronel also stitched a sweet matching scissor fob, that has already found a pair of scissors to call home :)
Ronel included some floss rings that I can attach to the needlebook if I want, which I think I just may do that. Ronel also made some pins for the book that are just gorgeous! She also made a neat necklace that says "Little Black Bird" on one side and on the other side has my name and Ronel's which I think is such a special treasure. I just love that! Ronel included other extras as well that I will definitely be able to use.
Thank you so very much Ronel for this wonderful exchange! I absolutely love everything you sent!
Here are some pics of my exchange.
