"Friday Night Sew in for December."

Hello,

Having the opportunity to take part in Friday Night Sew in saw me working on "Because it's Spring"  cross stitch.


Last night I stitched the letters K L M R Y Z and some of the pink flowers and stems on the right hand side. Only the birds nest to stitch now. Thanks to Wendy who kindly hosts Friday Night Sew In each month.


Earlier on in the week I machine embroidered several lengths of organza which will be table runners. The hardest part of this was hemming the organza. The over locker was needed for this. The embroidery designs are from a Brother card using Robison Anton thread.

Now is the time to I would like to  wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Take care if you are on the roads and be kind to one another.

Happy days.
Bev C
