Life’s Good!

YaY! Great progress with my eyesight this last week. I can see a lot more detail now and colours are so much more radiant! I can even take sharp photos without having to wear glasses.

A couple of finishes to share…

Secret Garden Strawberry, BBD

I also finished a small ornament which I stitched in late 2008 …

Design: freebie, from a Quaker designs (can’t recall)
Fabric: 32 count white Belfast linen
Thread: DMC Variations 4045
Trim: a gift from my friend Gaby

And just for the fun of it, I stitched myself a pair of country style pincushions. A stitcher can never have too many of these …
