a swap for all seasons no. five - what i made for my partner

The swapping fun continues over here! If it's at all possible, I think I get more excited with each new month of creating for the year long banner swap, A Swap For All Seasons, hosted by dear Linda. 

This is what I made for my fifth partner, darling Sherry, of Createology. I had a thought to use the inspiration of May Day and the May Queen but then I found this wonderful image and veered off into the truly royal. I had such a great time! I did blackwork embroidery for the very first time and got to add some of my French General charms. I had made some purchases at the Affaire at Downton last year that came wrapped in the lovely toile tissue paper, that was too pretty to let go of - serendipity!

It was such a pleasure to meet you Sherry and such fun to be your partner!


  1. I really do feel like Royalty with this beautiful sampler and the entire beautiful package you have created for me. Your blackwork embroidery is perfect! Thank you very much Sally Annie. Creative BLUEtiful Bliss...

    1. Hi Sherry! Oh! I'm so glad you like your sampler, I had the absolute best time making it all for you! It was a complete pleasure.
