A Little Finish

I've at last got around to stitching and finishing this pretty little freebie from Reflets de Soie.  The design is called Coeur Romantique.  It's been in my stash for five, maybe six years, and recently I decided that I thought it would look lovely finished as a heart shaped pinkeep, with a little pocket on the back to hold a pair of small scissors.

I've stitched it on 32ct Platinum Belfast Linen, 1 over 1 with The Gentle Art Sampler Threads, Antique Rose.  The twisted cord was made using DMC 712 and I've trimmed the pocket with some pretty lace I bought online from France.

I've had a busy couple of days cleaning through.  Colin arrives home tomorrow morning around 6ish - WOO HOO, I can't wait!  I don't blog that regular I know, but you definitely won't be hearing from me now for several weeks!!!  :o)

I Love Pincushions!

I bet you've guessed that already, with my last few posts having all been pincushions of one sort or!  This is a cute little quickie I made at the weekend.  The free tutorial can be found here, on the Very Berry Handmade blog.

I also have some big news to share!  Colin has had a promotion within the company he works for.  His new position is as Group Diving Manager, at Head Office, Sharjah, in the Middle East. The new position means that I can also accompany him, so we will get to see each other every day and won't be separated for long periods of 6 weeks at a time any more!  It's more then likely that by the end of the year I will have gone out to be with him, living in Dubai for several years.  In the meantime he's due home next week for hopefully about 10 days (not long since he's been away for 2 months).  I can't wait to see him, but as you can imagine we have lots to plan, organise etc, etc!  

I'm hoping to be back blogging again soon with a little freebie I stitched a few months ago, and should have finished by now!  

Thank you for visiting. :o)
