A new start

My friend/neighbour has been looking for something a bit different for her sisters Ruby Wedding in September but couldn't find just the right thing, so she asked me if i would be willing to stitch something. I sorted out a variety of charts for her to browse and she chose a nice one from an old Cross Stitch Gallery mag, a very simple but effective design. After pulling the DMC threads and the VC silk that i decided would be nice for the heart, we settled on 28ct jobelan in Ash Rose for the fabric and this is what i did last night when i eventually got sat down and settled ...

No stitchy club this week we're off to the pub, so not sure if i'll get any stitching done tonight, depends how much we chat and drink lol

Thanks to all who visit, whether you leave a comment or not, i really do appreciate it
