Holiday stitches Part 2



Though not technically a holiday stitch, I did finish Blackbird Designs - Garden of Life whilst on holiday. Many of you will know that I was part of a SAL for this earlier in the year, but it fell by the wayside a little - sorry Eva, as other commitments took over, but I am pleased to say that its finally finished.



I stitched it on 40ct linen in cream and used 1 strand of the recommended colour threads, so its quite soft in colour.


I did enjoy stitching this very much - now to decide how to finish it - cushion?, picture? bag?

Oh Su! First off, "Congrats" on your lovely work!!
I also have the same BBD-LF kit, and some other kits as well, but haven't been starting them yet at all...
On 40ct x 1 strand is my present favourite style! And yours seems sooooo beautiful!

Su, looks fantastic. I really like the softness of the colors with the 40 ct. I think it would make a wonderful bag. Can't wait to see what you decide on though. Whatever it is, it will be wonderful!
