A Tiny Pinkeep for Mum

Yesterday was my Mum's birthday and if I have time I always like to try to stitch a little something I can give her with either her present or money. This year I've made her a tiny pinkeep. This is a little French design, 'Coeur D'Ange' by Miniatures D' Alphabets. The fabric is 32ct Belfast Vintage Antique White Linen and was stitched 1 over 1 with DMC 815. I thought I would have a try at doing a ruched ribbon trim around the pinkeep and was really pleased with how it turned out. Mum really loved it too!

A Friend Is A Gift...

...and this little gift was stitched for a dear friend who has safely received it today so I can now share a picture. I really should have finished it and sent it on it's way well before now. I had completed the stitching in January, finished it into a little pillow and made the cord trim in March, which I finally got around to attaching in! The design is The Prairie Schooler's complimentary design, A Friend Is a Gift. Stitched on 32ct Bay Rum Jobelan using the listed DMC.
