Another Finish - Laura's Embroideries

I have a little box where I safely keep my finished pieces until I eventually get around to making them up. This one (along with many others) has been waiting in my little box since last summer! As soon as I bought the chart I had to stitch it up immediately - I really don't know why I've left it this long to properly finish!

The design is Laura's Embroideries by Marie Suarez/Coeur de Lin. The fabric and threads are my own choice. The fabric is 40ct Creme Brulee R & R linen, stitched 1 over 2 with DMC 451, 779, 3041 and 3042. I've finished it as a little pillow with tassels - one of my favourite finishes!




Hope to be back again soon with another little something to show from my box of stitching that I MUST get finished! Have a lovely weekend everyone and thanks again for popping by! :o)
