Summer House

Here's what I stitched for MamaJoan for the Summer House exchange. It is a freebie from Les Grilles de Maryse and stitched on vintage country belfast linen 32 count using dmc threads. I really love how this turned out and glad I can finally post a pic. I sent her some extras from her wishlist and have a couple extra things to send too which I have been waiting ages for. You can see pics on her blog.

I will be sending out Steph's PIF this week so hopefully I will be able to post up more pics of my long awaited secret stitiching! I have been working hard on CDC too and think I may do a little blog feature on what I plan to do with it to get some opinions and encouragement as it seem sto be going really slowly.
Have just seen a lovely get together for Christmas over at Jayne's Attic which I really would like to go on. I have asked my best friend Amanda if she is interested in going so that may be something to look forward to.
Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. Thanks for all the lovely comments. I appreciate each and every one of them and always try to return them. xx
