Secret Flowerbed Finish

I've spent a lovely afternoon playing in my sewing room working in my sewing room, and have completed this wee lovely.  I stitched it a while back, and it has been sitting in a big pile of things to be 'finished'. It was very daunting to just give it a go, but I'm pretty happy with the finished result.  I decided to make it a little assymetrical, rather than centred.  One more off my list to finish, maybe I'll keep at it while I'm in the mood.


Secret Flowerbed - The Trilogy
Stitched on Natural Belfast 32ct
with  Gentle Art, Weeks Dye Work threads

I completed the finishing on my Pin Pillow exchange yesterday and mailed it today.  So it is now winging its way to a new home, and will be there in a few days I hope.  Thanks to everyone who has stopped by, and/or left a comment, it is so nice to hear from you all. 

Till next time..........Busy stitching

The garden is beautiful! Is it your garden? What types of plants do you grow? The pillow is very pretty. I like your choice of fabric. Happy Stitching!! Jan

Gorgeous finish! I love the pink fabric and the pretty bow. It's just a perfect piece for spring (North American spring, I guess ;-)

I've just found your blog through Sally's (Stitchyangel) - a comment by a Nicky in NZ got my curiosity as we lived in NZ for a bit :) (Auckland I'm afraid - bleurgh!) Love your latest finish and your quilting. I have Leanne's House to do too - I'm only on block 2 and it's been hanging about for far too long!
