Hi from a somewhat cooler Cape Town! Yes, our temperatures have finally started to drop - great news for heat-hating me!
To top that, I actually have a small finish to share. This design is part of the "Stitching Treasures Needlework Set" by Deborah Thorpe in The Gift of Stitching Magazine.It is supposed to be a scissors fob, but it is a bit to big (it is stitched on 28ct evenweave and they recommend a 32ct), so I finished it as a little pincushion instead. The set also has a needle book and a sweet bag, which I would love to make in the near future. I'll also use one of the small motifs to make a matching scissors fob.
Here is my progress on the Hardanger pillow by Lee Albrecht:I have finished the cross stitching on it, now it is on to the pulled thread work.
I have another small lined up - the quick finishes are such fun!
Enjoy the rest of the week and Happy Stitching!
