What a great week-end of stitching I've had. I've have two finishes.
First is a 50th Birthday Card for my friend Mel. So I stitched her a Hardanger Card. I got out my "Flowers with Hardanger" by Mary Hickmott, and chose to do a variation on one of her designs, using one of the motifs from a cushion. In the Hardanger corners I did spider's web filling and diagonal dove's eye filling for the rest. I used my own colours from my stash. After making up the card I used some old lace and yellow ribbon to decorate the card. I'm quite pleased with the finish. I hope she likes it!

My next finish was "Toby Fox" from Cross Stitch Card Shop. He was a free kit from the magazine. He's one of the "Woodland Folk" by DMC. As usual I forgot to read the instructions. I should have used 1 strand of thread/floss, but I automatically used 2. I did run out of thread/floss, but I had plenty of my own, so was able to finish him.
