Summer Exchange

Although small in members Needlecraft Haven is just that, a haven for us to chat with friends and share our hobby.

We have monthly stitching challenges, a SAL covering the whole year and occasional exchanges.

This year's Summer Exchange was a little different, here's what it was all about:

  • Make a stitched card based on the theme of summer
  • Include a simple summer cooking recipe
  • Include a summer treat
My partner was Deb and although I know she has received her parcel she was on holiday for Opening Day so I'm not going to share the card and goodies I sent her until I know she is home and has opened her parcel.

Can however share the gifts Deb sent to me - a beautiful card, two great recipes and a wonderful ornament that I will be hanging in the garden when the sun shines - thank you Deb

We're off to France and of course my priority packing was my stitching, both pieces are gifts so I can't share but once home I'm going to frame my Sampler Bouquet - I can't wait to do that although it's a little daunting.


  1. Such a great exchange gift that you received.
    Have fun in France

  2. Clare I love your stitched card from delicate and pretty. And your ornament will truly shine in your garden. I know you will enjoy your time in France. Would love to be there too. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever

  3. Such a lovely exchange, the hummer hanger is so pretty and I'm always so impressed with someone taking the time to stitch a card. Looking forward to hearing all about your France trip, it's on my bucket list!

  4. What a fun exchange, lucky you! I hope you're having a great time!

  5. What a lovely exchange idea; and you got some lovely pieces. Have a great time in France x

  6. What a gorgeous card, the colours really pop on the darker fabric. Love the stained glass too.

  7. You had a pretty exchange~ The hummingbird stained glass will look so sparkly in the sun. Enjoy your vacation. :D/
