For Yuko

Photobucket


I'm glad to say that my very belated birthday parcel toYuko has reached her and from her email to me she is really delighted with her gift.
The design is another of those lovely cakes from Brookes Books, it was such a pleasure to stitch this for my dear friend, I used DMC and then lots of pretty sparkling beads and pearl beads as embellishment, it really does sparkle in real life. Its stitched on 36ct white linen. I know that Pink is Yukos favourite colour but I also know that she loves blue too, so this is a hazy kind of blue. The hanger is voile ribbon and I managed to get almost the same shade as the cake is!
