Gift / Tusal

I had a lovely package from my stitching sister, Angela, yesterday. She sent L*K Life's a Beach finished as a pinkeep, some fabric, buttons, needles, matt board and batting so that I can have a go at finishing. Thank you Angela I love it all.




A close up of the pinkeep.




The backing fabric of the pinkeep.



Next up my orts jar for the second full moon of July. Mostly threads from the baby sampler I have been stitching. I have just over one block to do but have run out of thread and am waiting for my husband to go to the shop next door where he works to get it for me. I'll show a picture next time.



Monday night was Lizzie*Kate night and I finished up Santa wants to Know. I really enjoyed this one and am hoping to finish it into a cube - just have to get some backing fabric on Tuesday when I go into town. Wish me luck I am going to need it.



While I wait for my thread I am going to have a new start, Country Cottage Needleworks A Bee C Sampler, as it is calling me lol.

Until next time, happy stitching

What lovely goodies you got! That Lizzie Kate Life's a Beach pattern is quite popular. I've seen several blogs where people were either stitching it or got is as a gift in a Exchange. I think I need to go get it for myself too. :)
