Don’t Bug Me – I’m Practising My Finishing Skills!

Fell in love with Don’t Bug Me  While I’m Stitching – Sweetheart Tree and stitched it during the Dec/Jan holiday break.  this year, I’m putting effort into finishing the many stitched pieces I have rolled up and stored away. I made the cording and tassel with the Spinster thingamajig and added some beads and a heart charm. Really chuffed with the way it’s turned out! It’s taken pride of place on my cross stitch wall!

Certified X-stitch addict and lover of tea, fabrics and beads. I work in the vocational education and training sector and in my spare time potter around in the garden growing roses. I'm mum to two adult children of whom I'm very proud.
