My Secret Finish !!!

I have finally finished my mothers sixtieth birthday present and it's only seven months late !!! She absolutely loved it. I am so pleased with it. It was Fleur by Heritage Stitchcraft and John Clayton. I made some changes to the headdress from mauve colours to greens and I added some beads ...




I've also had a couple of small finishes. These are patterns from my own etsy shop ...








I also finished my little bee embroidery ...




Happy Stitching Everybody !!!

  4. Gorgeous finish! Your mother is going to love it.

    I love the way you've used the fabric to enhance the stitching in the bee embroidery. Very clever.
