A finish, a freebie and an update :)

I can finally show you the bookmark I did for a recent exchange on facebook group Cross stitch friends in the UK, here it is!






I stitched him on aida band with a lovely blue edging and added blue felt at the back and some pretty ribbon to finish it off :) I'm offering the pattern as a freebie if anyone else would like to stitch him:

I also have an update on one of my January Challenge pieces, HAED SAL Blue Rose Fairy. I haven't had much time to work on this what with one thing and another so it was nice to be able to pick it up again, starting to see a tiny bit of detail in there now too which makes me want to keep going.

I have some serious stitching to do though if I want to finish her this year!!

This is where I left her at my last update:


And here's where I am now!

Hope to have another update on this one shortly, happy stitching all!

Great progress on the fairy as well. I don't know about you, but I'm having trouble getting to my big projrcts right now as the smaller ones are such fun with getting quicker finishes.

That is one stunning dog! My mum is a massive fan of those, so I think I've found the perfect present for her. I'll probably change the colours to blue and green though, as they're her favourites!
