My Birthday gift to my Best Friend

I can now share with you all the Pearsalls silk stumpwork kit that I have just stitched for my best friend Pierrette whose birthday is a few days after mine, this design is not only stitched onto silk dupion but the threads used for the project were also real silk which I find joy to stitch with.

We made a pact that we would not open our gifts until we had both received them from each other as we live across the pond from each other.

Today was the day, my gift from Pierrette had arrived a couple of weeks ago but I had not opened it until my gift to her had arrived which is what it did today. We both had other gifts from each other but these are the special gifts that we had both made for each other.

A wonderful birthday gift has just arrived

I have received the most darling and cute early gift for my birthday next week from my very dear best friend Pierrette of an adorable needlepoint design of a little cat which is just so like a couple of my cats I used to have called Boris and Doris now both over the Rainbow Bridge.
I will be making a trip into town tomorrow and will see what beautiful frame that I can find for it and will then post another picture when its framed

Another little project

This is a little art silk kit that I have just finished, thought it was time I got out all the kits and UFO's that I have had for a long time and this is one of them.

Embroidery whilst it snows

This is a little miniataure design from Rowandean that I have been playing around with whilst its been snowing here in the UK. As normally seems to happen a few flakes of snow the country grinds to a halt so I have staying in the warm and worked on this little project.

Hope that you like it, this is only about 4" x 3" and was quick to do with lots of lovely French Knots
