Like the little pillow in my previous post this one was also stitched last year, and again I have only now got around to finishing it. I was so excited to win Forget Me Not Sampler by Mary Garry’s Sewing Cabin on Ebay at the beginning of last year, and wanted to start it straight away, but with these MG designs being hard to find I didn't want to risk having it sent to me in Dubai and it going missing in the mail! I didn't want to have to wait until my next visit home to pick it up to bring back with me either, so had it sent to my Mum instead and asked her to scan and email me a working copy.
The fabric I have used is 48ct Raw Gander Linen, stitched over two with the listed DMC threads. I was due an eye test at the time, and knew I was needing a new prescription, so this was a bit struggle for me to stitch on the 48ct, and I will definitely be thinking twice in future before personalising over one on 48ct! The darker fabric for finishing is from Blackbird Designs Blueberry Crumb Cake. The leaflet also comes with a little pincushion design, which I will have to stitch one day too.
Thank you for popping by - I love to read your comments! :)
