Ladybugs & Bumblebees

I have a finish to share today - Ladybugs and Bumblebees by Country Cottage Needleworks

Ladybugs and Bumblebees by Country Cottage Needleworks
fabric: 32ct putty belfast linen
threads: Crescent Colours and DMC
(changes - I used DMC 840 for the wording as my CC thread didn't show up very well on the fabric)






It was a lovely design to stitch, and I'm pleased I finally got around to finishing it - it had been sitting there for a few weeks with only a few of the words left to do :)

I also made up the Christmas Peace ornament into a small hanging pillow.


Hannah and I enjoyed a walk out and about earlier today, great to have some fresh air and see the sun out as the last few days have been so cold. She's fast asleep at present so I'm going to make a coffee and pull up a chair and stitch for an hour or so. Ah bliss, stitching and coffee........
