Finally, some stitching photos...

Some stitching to show you at last. First is an exchange I recently completed for the Make a Wish exchange board. Sally asked for a Quaker pinkeep in blue so this is what I made her. It's stitched on 40ct Misty Rain from Lakeside Linens and the thread is Gloriana Holiday Blue. The design is from With My Needle's Quaker Needlework Treasures (which I really want to do for myself soon!)


I added a little pocket on the back with a 'Handmade with love' charm on a ribbon to jazz it up a little. Not great photos I'm afraid - I almost forgot to take any at all so these were late at night just before I parcelled it up to post.


I also managed to get a load done on Joanne's Little House Needleworks round robin. Just some flowers to put in under the grass.


Over 50 hours of work last week really cut into the stitching time but hopefully this week will be better and I can finish this off and a second Make a Wish exchange.
