Kim from Dork with a Needle has joined Rebecca's Doodle-Stitchalong for her 'City Roofs' neighborhood-scape - I love the bright color placed over this printed fabric, it's colorful and minimalist at the same time! I also like to think about whose neighborhood this might be and who lives in those little red-roofed houses! Read more about her project here.

Emily (Flickr user EarthGirlKnits) made this charming map of her own neighborhood in Michigan - I adore the french knots markings to indicate places special to her. What a lovely idea!
And lastly, Flickr user Wendalene printed a photo of a snowy New York street scene and stitched over it to wonderful effect, really bringing the photo to life in such a special way! Read more about her process at her blog.
I hope these lovely embroideries help give you that little push you need to get the finishing touches on your own inspiring swap pieces!
