Have you ever stitched using waste canvas??
Our donation for the fruit/veg show raffle this year will be 2 stitched gift baskets. I chose a rose border from an old magazine for the first one. Tack the waste canvas onto the liner to secure it, stitch, then remove it very carefully one thread at a time so as not to disturb the stitching. We chose a mug/biscuits/hot drinks for this one. It's gift wrapped in see through plastic with a bow tied at the top but i had to remove it to photograph it. If you've never tried it give it a go, it really is easy to use and worth the extra effort to make a special gift and of course you can stitch on almost anything then.
The people of Tenerife know what to do with frogs!! Look at this cute froggie thimble made of pewter that David and Amy brought back from their holiday for me. He looks such a grumpy chap doesn't he, i wonder why??
I have a small collection of pewter pincushions so he'll be right at home with them.
Thanks for stopping by, hope you're having a good weekend
