๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค— whoo hoo ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—

It's finished ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿค— last night I completed my Sampler Bouquet by Jardin Privรจ, the finally motif being aptly H ๐Ÿ˜

Hot off my stitching frame, unpressed and taken late evening the photo is not brilliant but you can see it all, I'll take more once it's pressed and framed.

Sampler Bouquet completed 29th June 2018
It is for our bedroom so once pressed I need to go to the framers with the huge French map we have hanging there as I want a similar colour frame and matching mount. Hopefully it will not be too expensive, cheaper a bit as I will frame it myself.

I can now start on my Summer Exchange piece for Needlecraft Haven. This year we have to stitch a card on the theme of summer, include a printed or handwritten summer recipe and a summer treat - perfect with the glorious sunny weather we are enjoying at the moment (if a little warm๐Ÿ˜ฎ)

I can also now share the latest 60th gift I sent to my friend in Norway, her birthday is on our wedding anniversary which we celebrated last weekend with a short break to Birmingham. I have blogged about our adventures in my travel blog Aimetu's - oh that spiral perm!!

K for Kathy's 60th
I am so so pleased with my finished Sampler Bouquet and cannot wait to put it up, there's a few little bits of stitching I want to do next but then I'm going to start another piece for our bedroom, hopefully that will not take me so long hee hee

  5. Clare this is a gorgeous finish. I can't wait to see it framed. Do you buy the frame and mats and then frame it yourself? Your gift for Kathy is so nicely done too. Have a great weekend. I'm off to check out your latest trip. RJ@stitchingfriendsforever
