A Small Finish

Thanks for the comments about the cards - I really enjoyed making them, and only wish I had more time to spend on card making, perhaps during our winter this year. But in the meantime I'm planning on going to monthly classes at the local scrapbooking shop.

Here's a small finish from earlier in the week



Christmas Motif Sampler II by JBW Designs
stitched on 32ct white Belfast using Baby Spinach GAST thread


I'm going to sew this into a small flanged pillow and will put together a tutorial for Anne and Karen's Focus on Finishing blog. I don't know when I'll get around to it but sometime soon!

Last night it was my local stitching group get together, came around fast this month, so I took along the PR angel to work on. This is where I finished last night.


Tonight I'll be working on LHN's Quilt Time Sampler and then tomorrow it will be time to start the last part of the Stitching Leporello. If you'd like to see what the finished piece looks like, check this out - its gorgeous!
