A Gift for a Friend

My stitching friend Clare (no blog) has a birthday coming up soon so I made this pretty Pins and Needles cushion for her.


Pins and Needles
Design by Danybrod
stitched on 32ct belfast linen with my own choice of DMC threads



I used the red fabric you can see in the background for the back of the pincushion. Such a pretty design I'll be definately stitching this one again sometime.

Now February is here (wow, didn't January just zoom by) I've chosen two Christmas ornaments to stitch during the month. Its Berry Time is coming along VERY slowly too.

With the erractic weather we've been having, hot and sunny one day, raining and cold the next, I've started to think about all the knitting I'd like to do for Hannah before winter comes because I have a feeling our autumn and winter are going to be here earlier this year. She needs some new hats, slippers and a couple of cardigans or jumpers. I'd better start hunting out some patterns and go wool shopping hadn't I? lol.
