Our Saturday Challenge

This week we chose another Quaker chart from The Workbasket, this one's called Quaker Autumn Tree. The same rules as last week - chose any fabric and thread you want and stitch and make up, then reveal .... i decided to make a herb sachet and filled my 16ct aida band with mixed herbs. The thread is good old Anchor 262 to match the coloured edges of the band. You can see Karens version on her blog it looks lovely.

Hope you all have a nice weekend and thanks for stopping by
