Forgot to show....



...you the finish I completed before I finished the one for Mark.
This is a Mary Garry design - Arthur & Amelia, and is called the skating party, I've stitched this on 32ct champagne linen 1/1 using an assortment of different threads I have in my stash, and I have finished it as a pinkeep with a pocket in the back.
It was a real fun one to do.

I'm slowly getting on with my Stitchers Pocket and I am so pleased with how its turning out, I'm almost 1/2 way through it now.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

That's such a cute piece. And the fabric and finishing are just perfect for it. I love when I can use a lot of different fibers from my stash.

Oooh this is so gorgeous what a pretty photo, and as you know one of my very favourite designs which one day I might get time to stitch !! It looks as lovely finished like this as the one Becky had got from Marie last year and you know how much I liked that :-)) !! Love the red gingham ribbon another big favourite of mine :)

Have a nice weekend Su

Such a beautiful pinkeep! This design is just waiting for me in my closet. I love how you used fabric and threads from you stash and the arrangement of your pearl pins! The beaded snowflakes in the background are gorgeous!

Oh Su, it's so pretty. I love the wintery feel of it, You can feel the cold snowflakes and the rush of the skaters whirling around and you can hear the laughter and the chatter.
I love the way you have finished it and really like the sound of the secret pocket at the back :>)
Hugs, Angela

Wow Su, great job! I love it when I can use random threads from my stash! Espeically those little bits that won't do for something large but I loathe to throw them out!
