Birthday Present

It was my Mother-in-Laws birthday last week and she is stitching herself a basket of biscornu so I decided to add to her collection, I had already stitched this for the HOE ABC Exchange and enjoyed doing it, so I decided to do it again in another colourway, it is stitched on blue variegated fabric 28ct with a Purple/blue variegated thread. I stitched beads around the edge.

I have also managed to do some stitching on my Sal piece it seems to grow quite quickly due to the large count.
