March Stamp - Lizzie Kate



The sun is shining and the weekend is here! 
Plenty of cross stitch time ahead for me ☺


We are now in March
- yep, already! -
which means it's Lizzie Kate stamp time


Front

Stitched on 28 count white Brittney fabric, 2 over 2,
using all 10 DMC recommended colours.

For the finish, I used the supplied yellow tiny buttons for the pot of gold
and some green pearls that I found in my stash for the edge.
And voila... a little pin cushion finish!!
All ready for St Patrick's Day on the 17th

ooOoo

There is still plenty of time to join my Easter Surprise Giveaway,
hop here to take part

Off to put some crosses on my Easter projects
and wishing you all a stitch-tastic weekend

Happy Stitching!
Mii

    1. :D I'm a perfectionist by nature! That is my problem... You know, when you finish something off & it's not exactly how you wanted it to be!!!

  38. This is great, I am so pleased I found Lizzie Kate designs. Your finishing skills are wonderfully brilliant and you inspire me heaps to do things... I hope one day I too have the skills you have :) Its lovely... the beads... I have to mention the beads. I have never used beads but love the idea of it all.... I will have to have a go I think!

    1. Thank you! Your comments are always so kind :)
      You should try the beads finish, it's simple & quite effective!
      If you're not sure how to do this, browse the web for Biscornu finishes... it's exactly the same, you only have to place your beads as you go along :)
