A Beauty Arrived From Australia

I won a RAK Giveaway prize recently from Lisa V. Look what she stitched for me, a gorgeous pinkeep. The design is a freebie from Textile Collection and the colors are great. Lisa's stitching and finishing are perfect. Thank you so much for the Gift, Lisa. I love it and will treasure it. Now I will let the pictures speak for itself.

An update on my Hardanger SAL, I had completed part three. Isn't it lovely? I love the white on the brown/raw Cashel Linen.

Here is a picture of the Bag that we are stitching for this SAL.

I had done the second ornament for the LHN Monthly Ornament SAL. It's the Pear Tree, the 2nd Ornament of the year.

The finishing line is in sight after more than a year of stitching. I have three more motifs and some personalization to go. Please pardon the wrinkles, I did not iron this piece before I took the picture. I am so happy to have this completed soon so that I can start another project. Another quaker? Maybe, lol.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciated and valued all your comments.

Happy stitching and take care till the next update.
