Winter Heart

Photobucket


As always my final stitch or finish for the Year is for Mark, and this year is no exception. I have stitched and finished Winter Heart by La De Da on 35ct linen, using silk thread by Dinky Dyes, the thread colour is called Shiraz.

The backing fabric is a deep reddy plum colour (very similar to the thread), and I trimmed it with a shop bought ready made tassle that I had, which again is very similar to the thread colour. I was happy with the result and Mark loved it which is the main thing.


Also I would like to take this opportunity to wish Everyone a very Happy New Year, and again THANK YOU ALL for visiting my blog.

Isn't it lovely when your work is so appreciated? I often do stitched cards for DH on our anniversary and he loves them too and shows them off to visitors.=) I've also done him 2 graduation cards and 2 bookmarks. Men aren't often easy to stitch for, but he does appreciate it and that makes it worthwhile.=)
