Home is the nicest word there is - Lizzie Kate

 
 
 
Good morning Peeps,
 
 
This past week, I have mainly worked on a small design and
it made a nice change from my ongoing monthly projects.
 
This chart was purchased during a recent trip to a show at the NEC Birmingham
 
Home is the nicest word there is
 

 
 
My model was worked on 18 count Aida fabric from my beloved supplier Sew It All
Fabric colour is Rustico
 
As always I have used the good old recommended DMC threads
 
2 over 1
 
 
 
 
The finishing bug is still away on leave...
 
 
 
 
Wishing you all a lovely & creative weekend!
 
 
Toodles,
Mii

      Although, I'm happy as I have stitched this cutie & it's one less in my stash :)

  9. Good things come in small packages. Don't worry about your finishing bug. I just framed a piece I finished 6 years ago..LOL!

    It's a lovely lil piece and I absolutely agree with the sentiment
