May Embroidery!

Virginia came over yesterday to visit the post-op one!
We exchanged our stitched pieces for May for our embroidered fragments swap...
Above is the one I gave her. You might recognize it from a pattern of little girls walking along.
I just took two of the girls out and did them and added the word "friend".
Below is what Virginia did for me...
And below is what I've made for a QB5 embroidery swap that is moving along quite slowly! ha! I embroidered in the corner of an old linen napkin
and will mail it to Margaret for her to add something
to it.

Love your running stitched friends. SO sweet! I like what you have started for the QB5 swap too. You make stitching look effortless. And of course, VB is a born natural. :)

Those are all so cute. I love the redwork girls...and the one your friend made for you is such a sweet pattern and done in the prettiest spring colors. I can't wait to see the end result of the napkins!
