Simplicity - Little House Needleworks


Hello Peeps!

Apologies for not posting earlier but our family had to deal
with Life's latest hurdles...

On the bright side, I have a small finish I can share with you all!

oOoOo

I have been stitching away on

"Simplicity"




Stitched on 28ct Zweigart Brittney evenweave, pearl grey fabric
2 over 2
using all reconmended DMC stranded cotton




Finished off as a small cushion
using printed cotton fabric, lace, pins & buttons from my stash








oOoOo

I will be back soon with another finish
Stay tuned!

Toodles,
Mii

  1. So, so lovely, your little finish. I love all the little things that you used to do the finishing. And everything is calling Spring.

    1. Thank you Brigitte!
      I wasn't sure if it really was a Spring design because the colours are quite dark but with a bird & a flower it became evident :)

    1. Thank you Rachel.
      I saw this fat quarter of fabric a little while ago and knew it would match the Simplicity design :) The lace was a real bargain: 3 metres for £1 at the Works :D
