My Exchange Squares

As you know, I joined Fair & Square Blog // We exchange 2 ~ 6" squares stitched on 32 ct. with another member that is decided by the moderator... It's great fun! Anyways, I exchanged with Daniela from Finland. I was a little nervous because I have seen some of her previouse stitching and she is wonderful! I was also excited to see what she would make for me. Well, you saw the beautiful quaker squares that she made.. and if you didn't scroll down! Well, she finally received my squares, so I can share them with you now... The pattern is from Hester's Needle, Deer in the Woods Sampler pattern. It was stitched on 32 ct Vintage Exampler... I followed the color chart in DMC, except the red... it called for a burgundy red and I liked this bricky red. I really liked this pattern for what Daniela said was her current interests... but the pattern was 103 stitches... so I had to do it 1/1 ~ it took some time but I got it done... I really like the way the squares turned out... I can't wait to see what you do with them Daniela! I have to figure out what to do with my squares too... hmmm... like I said for some reason that's the hardest part for me!
Well, I hope your weekend is shaping up to be nice~ I was outside almost all day raking and such... finally the snow is melting! Yay! ;-)
