Country Cottage Needleworks' Rose

While sorting through some of my newly aquired kits and charts the other day, I had an urge to start one of the threadpacks by Country Cottage Needleworks, Rose. It was such a pretty stitch.



A perfect size to be finished into a pin keep :) I used some snazzy pink and green fabric for the back but forgot to take a photo.

Its a public holiday here in New Zealand tomorrow, Waitangi Day. Will be very weird to have a day off in the middle of the week. I hope that doesn't make Thursday seem like a Monday all over again, lol. There's quite a few summer sales on at the moment so I'm planning heading the day shopping with a friend to pick up some nursery accesories.

Many thanks for the comments on my last post, really appreciate it. Nicki, I picked the frame up at the "big red shed" of all places, lol, for only $10.00. Now I wish I'd bought more of them when I got this one as its perfect for Little House Needleworks/Country Cottage style stitching.

As you know, I'm totally in love with CCN & LHN designs; I especially love their pink ones. This one is beautiful - the colors look so vibrant!

Lovely finish! It's really pretty :)

Nicki said...

Oooh, that's so pretty! I might have to do all of those - they are great.

Blimey - $10! I can't find any pretty frames here at all and even plain ones are £15 or more. So The Warehouse is good for something after all! LOL! (actually, all our crockery comes from there and it's perfectly fine!)
