Hi, I hope you’ve had a lovely summer. I have stitched this pattern twice in the past months for a couple of friends. I was going to do the proposed finishing but then I thought it was going to look t0o big and I didn’t like it; I used 32ct linen, I have to try with a higher count. Here you have the first one, which includes a matching little bin; I think this design, a bin and maybe a scissors fob is a nice set for a present. You can visit my blog to see how to make the bin.
And here the second one. I forgot to take a pic of it before the finishing.
