One colour exchange

I took part in an exchange a while ago and this week is the mailing week. The theme was "one colour" and you had to send one stitched and finished item and one other thing that is the same colour. Mine is not quite ready yet but I received a package yesterday from Nora. She sent me a beautiful heart shaped ornament that was stitched with Atalie's threads. She had stitched some with one thread and some with two and that is a great idea! I would have not come up with something like that, now I have one more idea in the future. :) She also sent me Alma Lynne's birdhouse chart book. Almost all the birdhouses have red in them so goes with the theme. :) I love birdhouses! Thank you Nora!

One other new thing came to our house yesterday. This one might be a reason for why I don't stitch so much in the near future... The Sims3!!! :D

Nice exchange, I love the the heart. I use different numbers of strands a lot, it creates nice texture and plays of light. When you get around to trying this try not only 1 and 2 strands but 1 with 3 or 4....lots of fun to play with.
