I have just been and checked the ASOE web site and was delighted to find that my Valentine exchange for Maggee in the USA has been delivered – very good considering I posted it on the 29th Jan.
The pattern was an old one that I have had in my pattern collection since the late 1990s from a cross stitch mag and was originally designed as an Xmas ornie in red and green.
Maggee really likes pink so I decided to stitch it in pink and green and try out a new finish with this little bordered cushion with the pink gingham. The little charm was from my stash – not certain where I got it from – may have been my LNS some time ago.
It was very simple to finish and generally quite a good stitch – not very quick as there is a lot of evenweave to be covered with the check background and it is very tiny! However I interspersed this project with knitting to give my old eyes a rest!
I am pleased that Maggee likes it and eagerly await getting my ornie from her.
Thanks for visiting.
