Just a Quickie

I have some progress to show you but haven't got photos taken so just going to show something I finished a few weeks ago and can now show. Last Friday it was Karan's birthday and I stitched up what I think is a really sweet freebie design and made it into a little pincushion. I am very happy to say that Karan loves it :)

Chessie and Me Bird and Flower
Unknown fabric

DMC
Started 16th June 2011

Finished 23rd June 2011
I added our initials to the back.

I've been to craft club again this morning and there were a few more ladies there. It's funny how you recognise faces but can't for the life of you think where you actually know them from!

I'll be back in a day or two with my WIPs and by then I'll be able to show another wee finish which was for a gift:)
Take care everyone.

Love & hugs
Sally

Love the colors you used in Chessie and Me. They're pretty. Glad your gift was loved. That's always a great feeling. And grats on making it again this week. I hate that, "I know you," feeling. It drives me crazy, lol.
