English Garden Pocket

Wow! Look at this ... two posts in two days!

I've got to say a BIG thank you to Kath, Katrina and Pat for a lovely afternoon yesterday - they are great friends, who put up with my woes and tears. I think stitching with friends is the best medicine for your soul :)

Here is English Garden Pocket all stitched - just need to put it together, I've also realised I need to add something to the initial space BEFORE I put it together, I was going to think about it and do it afterwards, but that would be a bit hard once it's all sewn up, duh! I think I'll look in one of my numerous DT charts and add a little garden row from another chart.

Anyway - here it is :)

I've said it before, and I just have to say it again - I LOVE Drawn Thread charts, and love all their little delicate speciality stitches!

So sorry for the upsetting news from dh. {{{{hugs}}}}
It's good that you were able to meet with stitching friends to talk about it and share some good things too. There's just something soooo theraputic about meeting with other stitchers!

Lisa, you did a great job! And you've enabled me again, I think - I wasn't really struck with this when it first came out, but now I've seen your stitched one, I think it might have to go on the wishlist ;)
