Can show, can't show, can show, can't show...

I had a lovely start to the week.  Tina had a train journey and came for a visit for the day on Monday and i showed her how to make pin keeps.  She doesn't have a blog but does some beautiful stitching. She brought with her Sampler Aux Bouquets,  i just wanted you to see how lovely it is. I have this in my stash, hopefully a 2013 project? until something else catches my eye!

It's that time of the year when everyone has projects that they can't show right now, i have a couple, but i also have some that i can share with you.
