My Needle's Work

One of my most favourite flowers is out at the moment, daphne. I wish I had some of my own to pick but I've never had any luck growing daphne, either in our garden or even in a pot, I tried many times.


Lucky for me, a friend does so she's been giving me little bundles - what a gorgeous scent in our office right now.

A few days ago I put the final stitches into My Needle's Work, a stitchalong piece I've been doing with my friend Clare.



My Needle's Work

Little House Needlework

stitched with recommended threads on coffee dyed 32ct



I really enjoyed this design and I've been thinking about making this into a wall hanging. Clare and I have already decided on our next stitchalong, Little House Needlework's The Sampler Lady, which we're planning to start in the next few weeks.


See you soon xx

Daphne is my favourite. It always reminds me of my nanna :)
I haven't been able to find a plant where I live and I doubt it would survive the summer but I keep looking!!
