Tiny Tidings - Lizzie Kate



Hello Peeps!

It might seem like I have gone all quiet these past few months,
but honestly I am stitching! I am always stitching!
Maybe I'm not as fast as I used to be :)


oOoOo


I have recently sent a little surprise Christmas package
to my stitching friends Justine & Rachel

Amongst a few stitching goodies (I won't mention the gorgeous Sew It All fabric) & chocolate
there were 2 handmade pieces for them to treasure.




oOoOo

Dec 25, from Tiny Tidings XIII by Lizzie Kate
Stitched on 14ct dark rustico aida fabric
2 over 1 using the recommended DMC threads
Finished off as a small flat fold using fabric, ribbons & pins from my stash




- A big thank you to Vonna for her perfect and very helpful tutorials -


oOoOo


Jingle Jingle, from Tiny Tidings XIX - Lizzie Kate

Stitched too on 14 ct aida dark rustico fabric,
2 over 1 and too using the DMC recommended threads

Finished off too as another slightly smaller flat fold
complete with fabric, ribbons & bells from my stash.




I did spend most of a weekend finishing these up, but it was all worth it!
- They were a first attempt -
I am truly delighted with my finishes and hope the girls will like them too.

Toodles,
Mii
