A little gift

It's birthday time of year again! A very happy birthday to Anne, Karen, Lina, Melissa and Becky - all with birthdays within a day or two of each other.

I haven't had time to stitch presents for everyone but I did whip this up on the train for Karen. It's Tulip Bookmark by Sue Hawkins. Canvaswork is such fun to do and much easier on a bumpy journey than working on linen!




I also did more finishing yesterday - Barbara, your winter exchange is done, I just need a bigger envelope to post it(!!!) And two surprises for friends are finished up too. Piccies once things get received.
