Finished !

Well I spent every free minute of the weekend and part of yesterday working on the Celtic Wedding Sampler and its complete !.
It looks wonderful and in the corners I did a mixture of both thread and beads.

Here’s the pics

The finished piece

Beads and threads around the M on the first sentence

Its been washed and pressed ready to make its way back to Australia with my sister. I hope she enjoys it !

I took part in a spring exchange on Seasonal Exchange Blog. Well my partner received her piece so I can show you all a pic of it now.

I made a little pillow with a ribbon trim, it was my first attempt at such a thing and I was quite pleased with how it came out. The fact that my partner loved it only made it better. It was a design by Barbara Ana.

My finished pillow for my partner.

I also received in the post from my partner the most gorgeous pillow for the same exchange. Its just wonderful and my first pillow to receive. Its called Home Sweet Home. Thank you so much Lynn, I love it.

My wonderful pillow that I received.

For the next week I’m knitting. I’m all stitched out and lately have been working to deadlines. I need to rest my stitching needles and while I ponder my next projects to start or complete I shall pick up my knitting needles. You can check out what I’ve done on my knitting blog With Needles and Wool

Happy stitching,
