A Gift and a Finish

Gaby and I have a private birthday exchange going.  I received a surprise package in the mail from her last week – the most adorable bunny I’ve ever seen 🙂  And Gaby said on her card that this is just a little something to keep me going until the real parcel arrives! Thank you, Gaby. I can’t wait…

German freebie pattern - stitched by Gaby

My turbo needles are in overdrive at the moment, so I’ve managed to finish two WIPs that were lingering in my UFO drawer.  The first is Bo-Peep, La-d-da… and this was a real pleasure to stitch. Absolutely love it!

Bo-Peep (No Sheep), La-D-Da

Happy Stitching 😉

    Bo Peep is such a great design, I love it, particularly the birds in that tree.
    Nice gift from Gaby.
