Birthday Princess

I've entered a challenge on MSCSG.  What we were asked to do was stitch one of Margaret Sherry's Sketchies and be creative, use painted fabric, coloured threads and add a little touch of yourselves! It can be a new saying, buttons, lace, anything you want.  So this is what I have come up with.  Adding Mill Hill glass seed beads 00553 and Metallic threads.

Letter Prize has arrived

My letter prize has arrived in the post today.  I can't wait to use the Madeira Silk threads.  I've never used silk thread before.  I received 10 spiral packs of silk threads and a thread cutter from Madeira together with a leaflet about the silk threads.

Prize for "Valentine Smooches" letter in Cross Stitcher Magazine.

Happy Stitching Everyone
