I finished the needlecase I was making. I loved doing the stitching but the construction was a nightmare. Enough said.
And the back
Not quite centre back although I stitched just where the diagram showed me too.
And I had enough time to stitch Mr E his very own Christmas card.
The Needlecase was a kit from Textile Heritage avaiable to buy here
The card is by Mouseloft available here
Mr J may have thought his son, my grandson Master H wouldn’t think the birth sampler “cool” and would have to to “sell” it to him, but he was wrong. Master H LOVED it. It had his name on it and oh my, his birthday too and he loved the stories of Percy the Park Keeper, and would Daddy hang it straightaway! Such a happy Nanacathy.
Next year I am starting with a Flower Fairy! Been in my to start pile for a few years already and high time I stitched it.
