Exchange mailed and some Quaker Christmas

I am mailing my first SBEB - "Specific Designer Exchange - LHN" this morning. This is my first exchange and I hope the recipient enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it. I will post a snap as soon as I know that they got the package as it has quite a way to go.....

Last night while watching Shogun (since there is nothing on the TV to watch anymore!!!) I worked on Quaker Christmas. I know that it was VoHRH night but I felt the need to finish up the large snowflake that I had started on Sunday. Here is a snap of the progress.

I had a question from Barbara yesterday about the floss I am using. I am using the recommended Crescent Colours overdyed floss. This dark green is called Balsam Fir. There are spotted motifs that call for Ye Olde Gold and Cupid which are a bright yellow and bright red, they will really pop when this is finished. I did change the linen to a gray flecked piece of fabric the model used a pale light beige for the linen. I am VERY happy with sticking to the dark green as I really prefer darker colours. This shade of green is coming off as almost black green!!!

I need to stitch up the lottery piece and get started on the next exchanges.... so much to do and here it is Thanksgiving!!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Take care,


  1. Edgar, your Quaker Christmas start is really pretty! I'm planning on starting soon too! :)

  2. This particular design caught my eye, though I doubt I'll have time to stitch it anytime soon. Glad you'll be sharing your progress on it. The floss color looks great!

  3. Okay, I remember the post with the CC Balsam Fir now - I was drawing a blank last night. Thanks!!

  4. Great work on your new start! Hope you feel better!

  5. Aw, I am sure your exchange will be well received wherever it is going. So glad you joined the SBEBB with us!
