Gifts for Friends

This week I've been catching up on some blog maintenance and uploading late 2017 finishes to my Flickr account. I spotted that I have completely forgotten to publish a couple of draft posts with some of my secret Christmas stitching!

Many of these projects were stitched throughout 2017 and then finished off to be ready for gifting at Christmas.

For my friend Elizabeth in Auckland, I made a drawstring pouch. The design is Honeybee Sampling by Little House Needleworks, stitched with recommended threads on 32ct mocha belfast linen.




For Kath's early December birthday, I made this large pouch bag, which can be used for a stitching or knitting project. I finished this design way back in January 2017. This is With Thy Needle's Heaven & Nature Sing.


Another stitched gift for Kath, was this little pillow. The design is by Abbey Rose Designs, Do More of What Makes You Happy.



And lastly, using another Little House Needleworks design, Rosey, I made a zippered project bag for Clare.


See you soon xx

Beautiful stitching and finishing. I hav eto admit to nearly always finishing as a small cushion but the pouches are extra useful. I will be looking out for the bee chart too. x
