Two Small Finishes


Hello there
I hope the week is off to a good start for you. Yippee, Easter weekend is almost here, a four day weekend coming up!

Last Friday it was my dear friend Wendy's birthday.  I meet up with Wendy and Kath for lunch at one of our local cafe for lunch, Latitude 40 and what a delicious lunch it was too.

This is the little pillow I made for Wendy's gift:



one of the designs from Petites Maisons Rouges by Tralala
stitched with DMC, Countrystitch 28ct Lugana - Merino

Check out Kath's blog to see the gorgeous bag she made for Wendy - its fabulous, and I can't wait to have my own one made, I have the stitchery piece underway.

I have finally finished up the first in the Virtues series by Little House Needleworks:


Hope Virtue by Little House Needleworks
stitched with DMC, 30 ct Dark Chino by R &R


The next chart in the series should be here any day now, along with part 4 from the Santa's Village series. I think I'll be all set for deciding what to stitch over the Easter break.

See you soon xx

Hello Katrina
Every time I visit your gorgeous blog I find so much inspiration.
It's an adorable pillow you made for Wendy. LOVe the stitching and also LOVe the fabric - can you tell me what it is?
I will have to see where I can find the Petites Maisons Rouges by Tralala on-line. I'm in Auckland so I will phone my 2 embroidery shops and let you know!!! In case they don't stock it, would you mind pointing me in the right direction - sorry Katrina... after Easter is OK as I"m sure you've got far too much on your mind with Easter only days away and little ones to organise Easter eggs for!
hugs
Shane ♥
