My First Ever Exchange: A Cushion Cover

I meant to blog about this last year (as in really...) but ended up forgetting it. This is my first ever exchange, on August 2007 from NNC group. Barbara - or BJ as we call her - stitched me this adorable cushion cover. Isn't it lovely? The stitching is just perfect and I love the color combination.
10" x 10" Cushion Cover Exchange
From Barbara of Malaysia
My recipient partner on this exchange is Charlene of Malaysia. Never did I imagine that postal service in Malaysia is worst than back home. Here's the (first) cushion cover I made for Lene, which unfortunately gone MIA (missing in action). It was sent via flat-rate global priority mail, and using the tracking number that goes with the flat rate envelope, USPS record says the package reached the postal office destination in Malaysia. I therefore conclude that the package was stolen by a postal office staff. If by any chance you'll see this cushion cover on somebody's house, do not hesitate to let them know that it is a stolen piece.
Lost Cushion Cover for Lene
As a rule, I had to re-stitch a second piece, but this time I used a different address. Thanks to MW for letting us use her residence address. Finally, Lene recieved her cushion cover.:)
