And another finish ... aren't I'm good?


done!!!
This is 'Haunted House' by the Snowflower Diaries. It was completed on Zweigart 28 count Pastel Linen Amsterdam Blue. In the following colours: DMC: 310 and blanc, and Anchor: 13 and 302

Furthermore 'Truly, Madly, Deeply' is now a finish thanks to my lovely mum. Check out the earlier post HERE. By the same designer. Both were done for the 2013 SAL. Check out the giveaway Maja (of the Snowflower Diaries) is having below.  

she made it into a heart with herbs

isn't it lovely?

I might add on some more embroidery onto it ... but I might just leave it like that.

Talking of my mums hearts ... they are available on the craft fairs that we do ... plus coming soon to etsy.

Well that is it for the month's update.
