I can finally share my secret finish! It's two weeks since I posted it with a card to my friend, Judy, in the USA and she has just got it, just over a week since her birthday! Next year I will post two weeks before her birthday and then she just might get it in time! This is a Brightneedle freebie called Dearest Friend, stitched over 1 on 32 count fabric using the called for DMC. I made it up into a fob. The picture is not brilliant I'm afraid. I am relieved it has finally arrived as I had a nasty feeling it had gone missing.
Today is the start of the LHN Chocolate Shoppe SAL that Claire and Nicola have organised and I'm going to settle down in a while and make a start. I only intend to stitch on it on a Wednesday afternoon and see how I get on. It looks relatively quick to stitch but I might not get any done next Wednesday with it being half term.
Chatelaine Summer Afternoon is coming along nicely this week. I'm onto page 2 of the stitching but have the beads to sew on yet. I'm not sure whether to sew them on as I go along or leave them until the end. I don't think I can wait to sew loads on at the end so may well do it as I finish each page.
I hope everyone in the UK is staying warm now we've finally got a nice cold snap and lots of snow forecastt!
