I would like to start off by wishing my dear friend Lisa S a Happy Birthday. It was Lisa's birthday on Halloween so I'm a few days late posting.
Here is what I sent her for a gift this year.
Shakespeare's Peddler - Sampler Roundy
I didn't have a round base to mount it on so instead I made a round pincushion finish and found a vintage looking button for the centre. Its the first time I have tried this finish and I was happy with how it turned out. I used some black chenille to trim it with.
I was also a lucky winner over on Lisa M's blog and this is the parcel that arrived for me. I got soo excited when I saw all the lovely trims and threads, not to mention the beautiful piece of linen, aren't the colours amazing! I have also found some ornie's in this magazine that I will be stitching up for sure. Thank you Lisa!
I have been stitching on an exchange piece and also working on some Christmas Ornie's which I should have finished soon and will show them on my next post.
Thank you all for visiting and your lovely comments, I do appreciate them all.
Until next time, happy stitchingLisa
