It's a freebie pattern from Shepherd's Bush and Sue substituted threads and colors for a 'summery' look. I love it! I think she may be psychic because I not only like Shepherd's Bush, but I love bees too! Sue's friend Julie will be posting pics later and I can't wait for everyone to see how lovely they are!
Sue was also sweet to send two coordinating fabrics and ribbon that I'm going to use with the finishing :)
Thank you, Thank you Wild Sue! This was my first ever exchange and I'm glad you were my partner!
ps. thank you to all who left such sweet comments about the squares I sent to Sue. Does anyone have any idea what happened to the post?
Happy Stitching, Staci

I made one change to the pattern. I added some spice by using some specialty stitches. I satined stitched the bookbag and Smyrna (sp?) stitched the leaves on the tree :-) Oh the pattern is Brightneedle's Season Petites.

Now I send away my blocks to Heidi.I have had a great time choosing pattern,colours and doing the embroidery on a wonderful linen fabric(32ct).For me this is the first swap on Fair and Square and I hope I can do it once again later this year.Tomorrow I start working after a long vacation and therefore I have to see which swap I can participate in.
I wish you all a lovely time

After seeing other blogs with many authors, I've realized that we've never set any guidelines about posting. So when you post your squares, please put in the labels line your name, stitcher's name and which Round it is.
So for example, My partner is Ernie for this round. I receive Ernie's squares, what I would do is:
- Write my post about receiving my squares; with a picture of said squares
- Label my post on the label line with: Vonna, Ernie, Round 2
This will make it all easy for us when we get to round 50 (ha, ha, ha....) to be able to pick our names or rounds and see all the lovely squares we received.
**If you are unfamiliar with posting to this blog, or uploading pictures, or cannot upload pictures, please ask your "partner" to post pictures for you when possible, so that we can all see what we've stitched.
And just one little more bit of business, please make sure that I am aware and your partner is aware of e-mail changes, address changes, etc. I know we've had several people move or in the process of moving and we need to keep everyone informed so that we can receive from each other without any problems. Many thanks...we're getting within 3 weeks of deadlines..and I for one know I NEED to get stitching! Hugs to all!

I sent your squares this morning and i hope you like them! Im not sure when they'll arrive...the royal mail's pretty unpredictable at the moment with all the workers striking. Let me know when/if you get them! I enjoyed stitching for you.
You can sign me up for round 3 please Vonna!

I can't beleive that Marie and I have pretty much identical tastes, good huswife, carriage house samplings, etc!! So this is easy, finding something in my stash for stitching. I have the floss and pattern, the linen is going to get serged sometime today or tomorrow. I am excited to get this going.
The unfortunate part is that I have to go to work now.....

Aren't they beautiful!!!!!!!!! I received them Friday, but they got "lost" until yesterday when I finally opened them! She went them with a lovely postcard from Vermont, where she doesn't realize we used to live! Anywho, I am feeling rather behind now, as I haven't decided what I am even stitching yet!! Story of my life....so Marie, be patient, you won't be recieving your squares this week!! LOL!!!
Thanks so much, they are lovely! And if you can't see in the pictures, she did her name one over one!! I am impressed....so impressed.
