thank you biqui

Lovely Lionel must think I’ve won a popularity contest or have been shopping on the internet again ^^ because yesterday he dropped off another parcel. A real surprise for me, because I haven’t got anything on order . . . so rip rip went the paper . . . to discover a gift from biqui. More bookmarks for my collection, but the icing on the cake, a lovely framed cross stitch CAT.  Yay, and he’s gorgeous. The design is so simple, in greys and blacks, by Passion Creative who has really captured the feline pose.

So many thanks to biqui for her workwomanship and for her generosity.

“Tangled Frame” last part

Today is the last part of the “Tangled Frame” SAL.

Not difficult to guess what the last part to stitch is . . . yup it’s the zig-zag bits all around the outer frame.

I have already begun my “finishings” for this project although it’ll be a while before it’s actually finished. Am doing some log cabin type patchwork and plan on making it into a cushion cover.

Still quite a few bands to stitch and then I’ll have hours of work with the hand-quilting . . . so please be patient.
