TUSAL, Love Sampler and August Flower!!!

Here is my Tusal pic for Feb's new moon and the first outing of my new Tusal jar (for information on TUSAL head over to Daffycat's blog).  It's a lovely decanter that I got from a charity shop for three pounds!!! I really love it.  I had to clean it up but it looks really shiny and new:


Next up are my latest finishes both internet freebies.  The first is a fantastic design from Kincavel Krosses.  Kell has some beautiful designs and I fell in LOVE (excuse the pun!!!) with this one.  For people who have been following this blog for a while you might recognise this from last year, when I stitched it up in different colours as a card to celebrate the engagement of my sister and her partner.  For my own version I used Polstitches thread.  This was my first time using this thread and I must say I was really impressed, they were lovely to use and gave a really nice effect. 


LOVE SAMPLER

This is a pattern that I have had on my computer for a while now when the site Sew Discounted released a free design each month.  They are no longer available so I cannot link to it but I still have a few on them on my computer.  It was just a small quick design that I used as a travel project:
