My First 2010 finish

Firstly I would like to say HUGE thankyous to all who came to my party, I really enjoyed seeing everyones 2009 finishes it was great fun - so much so I think I'll do it again at the end of this year.
Did you all have a good New Year?? I spent it with my Best Friend Karen and her family - which is quite usual for me, as we have our first BBQ of the year whether its raining or snowing - This year was wonderful we had no wind/rain or snow it was very bright and very very cold. We also had our usual fireworks which as always were spectacular.


This little wee finish is my first for 2010, the initial is a french freebie (I think its a Sajou one)When I had downloaded it so long ago now I didn't write on where it was from.

I've stitched it using Poinsetta Gloriana silk thread that I received from Cathy on our Christmas ornament exchange and I have stitched it on Antique white 35ct linen, it was just perfect for the little 2.5" x 3.5" frame I had already and will be going into my newly dramatically altered guest bedroom, photos of that I will show as soon as its completely finished its sooo different to what it was before and I am sooooo pleased with the result so far.
