Another finish

This is my latest finish. It was a must stitch. The chart is by Little House Needleworks and Country Cottage Needleworks, and is called Bee Pinkeep. I won't be making it into a pinkeep, but I think it will make a lovely box top. I'd like to make a fabric box, and have a small leaf print fabric in mind. So I'll keep my eye out for the fabric.

The design is in the latest issue of The Gift of Stitching which came out on Tuesday. I love this magazine, last months issue had 28 ornaments in it, and I'm just in the process of printing them out. I don't think there's any I don't like. If you click on the magazine, you can find out more info, but I say it's definately worth the dollars.


Latest Issue - The Gift of Stitching

I started my Valentine exchange last night, and that's coming along nicely, but I won't be able to post a picture, so I'll show you this. This is a photo stitch of Bettys dad. Betty died in July 2006, and this is what she stitched. I was given this in December to finish off for her sister, so hope to make a start on completeing it this week.
