Forget me Not

Photobucket


A little while ago Nataliejo (my heroine) was very kind and gave us a tutorial on how to make a floss holder, I wanted to use this great finishing technique and went looking for the perfect design, L'R de rien meantime brought out this wonderful design which says Forget me Not and I just wanted to stitch it as soon as I saw it and knew that was the design for my first thread holder, isn't it a lovely design? I have stitched it 1/1 on 32ct evenweave using the recommended colours and was really delighted with it when I had finished it. I really enjoyed making this and it certainly won't be my last one of this type of finishing Thankyou Natalie for the clear tutorial and the inspirational idea.

That is just darling and with "un petit peu de français" makes it even nicer for me as my mother tongue is French, being French Canadian :-)
