I got a pattern from Happy Stitching (http://www.xstitchhappy.com/2008/08/hummingbird-scissors-triangle-case.html). I used the flowers, but in my own colours. I also used the over one hummingbird pattern on the fob. The rest was my own idea (poem was from my garden chair).
Here is a photo showing all four stitched items. I stitched the scissor case and fob for Leigh. Leigh stitched the Friendship framed item for Wilma. Wilma stitched the Friends coaster for Heather. Heather stitched a Just Nan Minerva mouse for me.
I was thrilled to receive Minerva mouse. I have seen it on the web, but it was a limited edition several years ago before I discovered Just Nan so I couldn't buy the pattern. Thanks to Heather, I now have a Minerva mouse of my very own.
We had so much fun with this exchange all four of us (and 2 others) will be participating in the Canadian online Spring is Coming exchange in April. I have to find something new to stitch.
