My Latest WIP

This is what I have been working on this weekend. It may not look like much, but I am a beginner stitcher, and a bit slow. One day I'll be stitching with the fastest of them, I'll do the 100m backstitch in record time. I'll collect gold. But for now, I am satisfied just to slowly make my mark.

One of my good friends is celebrating her birthday soon, and I am thinking that maybe a pair of embroidered pillowcases could be the go. She's one of those people who are very hard to buy for.

Well it's either that, or this book. And I'm not sure this book would be warmly welcomed into her library.

Your stitching is gorgeous. About the book - doesn't she already have panache in her everyday conversation?

I know I'd prefer the pillow cases, hand stitched with love and friendship ! That's great work, and very delicate. Thanks heaps for visiting my blog and leaving your lovely comment too, it's much appreciated!
