It's most certainly not Spring here in the Southern hemisphere, but I recently participated in a spring/Easter exchange on the Stiched with Love exchange blog.

As yet, I do not know who my partner was but a big thank you to the stitcher who sent me this wonderful exchange.

A lovely wall hanging -

And a fantastic bunch of extras (a cute bunny chart, the threads to stitch it, ribbons, buttons, fabric and some fat quarters). Talk about being very spoilt.

I haven't heard if my exchange has been received and I know the person I sent to reads my blog, so I won't say who I stitched for at this stage but this is what I stitched and sent -

I am currently stitching a very cute design for my baby, which I hope to finish and share very soon. In my last post I mentioned I'd had some flutterings which I thought might be the baby kicking - now I am in no doubt. DH has had his hand kicked too, which he thought was pretty cool.

I am currently on leave from work and we have just come back from four days up north in Taranaki visiting family. One of the nights we spent away was in a small township called Mokau, and this is the view from the deck of the bach we stayed at - in the distance is Mt Taranaki. Like with all good trips away, it was over too soon!

Hopefully I'll get some time with the rest of my leave from work to do some stitching.

Happy stitching everyone!
