Wild Olive Stitch Swap - My First!

I'm so happy! Today was the final day for mailing out your completed embroidery work in the infamous stitch swap at Wild Olive.


It worked like this......You signed up to participate at Wild Olive. (There were around 270 people signed up this year.) Mollie at Wild Olive (a VERY talented lady) then gave each of the participants another person's address along with a few tidbits about their likes (if they filled out the info) so we could embroider something for them and "frame" the finished work in a 4" embroidery hoop.

The most enjoyable part about this swap is anxiously awaiting for your swap in the mail. We're told who our finished embroidery piece will go to, but we don't know where the one being sewn for us is coming from. See? Fun, huh?

Here's the completed embroidery piece I sent out priority in this morning's mail.


I hope my secret swap recipient likes it. I'll be sure to post a picture when I receive my swap in the mail. This was such a fun project, I will definitely be signing up for the next exchange. Thank you Mollie for hosting this swap. :)

  1. I am the happy recipient of your stitching! Love it! It is hanging at my desk at work. Couple people have commented on it which is a good thing. (I work in Product Development for a large needlecraft company so lots of expertise here and people love it.) Thank you so much!
