Fair & Square Exchange

Besides working on my bus project I haven't done much stitching this week. But I'd like to share pictures of my latest Fair & Square exchange with Ruth.

These are the squares she send to me. Aren't they absolutely gorgeous? I love how she added the Finnish flag to the design. It makes it even more special.
I had to finish the squares straight away into a pin cushion. Usually I use the signature square on the back of the pillow, but this little apricot tree is far to special to hide it there.
And here are the squares I stitched for Ruth. The design is from Maryse and called the "Sweet heart Cottage". I have stitched this design once before in it's original colours, but for Ruth's squares I changed them.

So beautiful! And the house you made is nice,too, I found the freebie from Maryse´s website so I can stitch one for myself, too!
