Birthday Gifts for a Dear Friend

On Monday my lovely friend Kath celebrated her birthday so of course I had to stitch a couple of little gifties for her.

This Lizzie Kate design is from the UK Cross Stitcher magazine, November 2014.

I wasn't really sure how I was going to finish it so went looking through my fabric stash for some inspiration and came across some fabric to use. I thought about a project bag of some sort, or even a q snap storage bag.  I was pretty happy with how it turned out. 


I'll have to stitch this again sometime for myself!


Next up is this red work Christmas stocking. This is a Marg Low pattern and I stitched the design with DMC 221, to match some Lynette Anderson fabric I wanted to use for the backing.


For many years now I have given Kath a Christmas ornament on her birthday - you may have already seen this one on my blog recently:


I hope you had a super day my friend!

I love the bag you made, and I love the pattern, but most especially I LOVE the fabrics you chose to finish the bag. They are cheery and happy and bright for sure, and the bag can be used year-round. Terrific finishing. Thanks for sharing.
