Two down, 23 to go!

I finally finished some of the gifts I've been stitching. I have a few more for family that are stitched but not made up yet. Hopefully those'll get done this week.

Here's the first - a redwork pinkeep. It's one of the blocks from A Mon Ami Pierre's Nine Red 1. It's stitched one over one on 28ct Platinum cashel linen using DMC 115. The ribbon is Vicki Clayton's Turkey red ribbon.


And this is Lizzie*Kate's 'Friends' ornament made into a little cushion. I changed most of the threads to ones I had in my stash so most of the colours are a bit different to the model. It's stitched on an opalescent evenweave from a Silkweaver treat bag.


23 more to go for the challenge!

  2. Fab finishes, the redwork is so delicate and really shows off the DMC 115 to perfection.
