something I had been working on for a little while but couldn't show you as it was a gift for my friend Sandra's birthday which was yesterday. Sandra and I have never met as yet but have become great friends or as I call it 'email buddies'. It is lovely to have a friend who shares the same enthusiasm and love of stitching as I do and although we are on different sides of the world the Internet has made it easy to develop a lovely friendship and hopefully next year we may be able to meet in person.Here is what I stitched for Sandra.....
It is part of a Carriage House Samplings chart called The Song They Sang and I made it into a biscornu. It is stitched with NPI Silks and I added the tassels and beads.
I am still working on my June ornament and Sandra has hers all finished and looking beautiful. You can see it in her album. My Strawberry Blonde has taken a back seat over recent times and I am feeling a tad guilty so it might get an airing soon and have a few more stitches added. I have also been working on another small gift for a lovely friend as well so I should be able to show you that soon. Just have to assemble it.
“It was early, early in the spring
The birds did whistle and sweetly sing
Changing their notes from tree to tree,
The song they sang they sang for me.”
