Weekend Stitchery


Well this was my weekend stitchery and finishing. The design is by Stacy Nash and is from the lovely booklet 'from Me to Thee, that I received for my birthday. The design is simply called Heart Pin cushion.

I've stitched it using DMC and on 30ct fabric which after stitching it all and finishing I soaked in strong coffee, I am pleased with the result very much.

I have hand-sewn it all together and the backing fabric is by Moda.

Well the rain has come and is beginning to wash the ice away - thank heavens and its not as cold as it was which is good. My ever troublesome gum abcess has reared itself up again and I'm suffering in silence, I am going to make an appointment for the dentist tomorrow...... - Yuk!
