Lovely exchange and some progress

Yesterday I found a most lovely exchange in my mail. It was the Summerhouse Exchange from the HoE Board. Susan did not only a beautiful design (part of The Treavelling Stitching by LHN) but she did a gorgeous finish as a stitching bag. I just love it!



As you understand I have been stitching a Summerhouse echange too, but I can't show pictures of that for obvious reasons. I can show some progress on other stitching. It probably will be the last blogpost before we leave for a two-week-holiday to France, so here we go!
First of all Mary Wigham, I bet you all want to know how far she is. Well, I've done not too much, because I can only stitch on her in daylight, in spite of my Ott-lamp. I stitch her on 40 count, and my eyes... well, it's my age I suppose LOL.



Another one I'm working at is The Plantation Sampler. I only have a little progress, but nevertheless, here it is.



And I built a home in about nine days. Vibrant Vista has its first home, so I just have to show you. The picture turned out way to blue, in fact the fabric is white.

Beautiful work - I especially love the Chatelaine of course, as I have it ready to go (as so many others).

Joke, your WIPs look so great, particularly Vibrant Vista. I have that in my stash too but haven't dared to start it so far as it's all over one stitching.
I love the tote bag you received in the HOE exchange.
