Grateful Hearts Exchange (SBEBB) from Sandra & Birthday gift for Sari

Today I received this lovely pinkeep from Sandra, all the way from Barbados! Sandra writes that this is her first exchange, and I'm honoured to receive it, thank you so much Sandra! I'm sorry but I didn't find your blog address, so I can't link it here. I just love the blue, so this design was a perfect choice for me, I like it a lot :) Thanks again!!

Sari had her birthday yesterday, so I wanted to surprise her with something stitched. This LHN/CCN design has been published in The Gift of Stitching magazine and I thought it would be perfect for her. I just love surprises and I think Sari does too :) Sari is one of the wonderful stitching friends living here in the Oulu area and I'm very happy to know her :)

Sandra m'a brodé ce pinkeep pour l'échange Grateful Hearts à SBEBB. Elle habite à Barbados et elle ecrit que c'est le premier échange pour elle! Merci mille fois Sandra, j'adore le bleue! Je n'ai pas trouvé l'adresse du blog de Sandra, donc je ne peux pas la vous donner...

C'etait l'anniversaire de Sari hier et j'ai voulu broder quelque chose pour elle. J'adore les surprises et je croix que Sari les adore aussi :) Sari aime bien Little House Needleworks et Country Cottage Needleworks, donc ce modèle (dans The Gift of Stitching magazine) me semblait parfait pour elle :) Sari habite ici à Oulu aussi.

Tänään sain postia Barbadokselta asti! Sandra teki tämän neulavahdin SBEBB:n Grateful Hearts -vaihdossa. Sandra kirjoitti, että tämä on hänen ensimmäinen vaihtonsa! En löytänyt Sandran blogia mistään, niinpä en voi linkittää... Sininen on yksi lempparivärini, niinpä malli oli osuva valinta :)

Alapuolella kuva neulavahdista, jonka pistelin Sarille. Sari on ihana OUlulainen ristiPiStelijä, eikä siis edes asu kovin kaukana :) Sarilla oli synttärit eilen ja halusin jotain pistellä lahjaksi. Yllätykset ovat aina ihania ja Sarikin taitaa tykätä yllätyksistä :) Tämä Little House Needleworksin ja Country Cottage Needleworksin yhteismalli oli ihan Sarin näköinen. Malli on julkaistu The Gift of Stitching -lehdessä aiemmin tänä vuonna.
