Final finish for 2005 and its for Mark

This is what I have been busy stitching the last couple of days, whilst I have been off colour, it is of course for my DH Mark. I have just put the final finishing stitch in it about 5 minutes ago in the ribbon fastener, handed it to him and then ran off with it to photograph it to show you all. I have stitched both pieces in Vicki Clayton silk in Turkey Red, and stitched it on 28ct white linen. 1 over 1.
Amour is a freebie, by Danielle Gouriou Curie, and the Coeur Romantique, again is a freebie by reflets de Soie, I thought that the styles of them went really well together and so made a small cushioned drawer hanging. I was really pleased with how its come out and the charts were a delight to stitch.

Can I take this opportunity to wish everyone a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR and a wonderful 2006, I hope that its a healthy, wealthy one for all and that we get plenty of stitching and stashing achieved!!
