"Friday Night with Friends- a cross stitch finish."

Hello,

Friday Night with Friends was on last night. I had started stitching on this hand towel earlier on in the week so only had about a quarter of it to stitch. I also attached some ric-rack.


I found the cross stitch pattern in Australian Country Craft and Decorating Vol 8 No 4. I used DMC threads Number 700 and 704.

27 ladies joined in Friday Night with Friends this month, it is great to be part of this and I thank Cheryll for hosting us each month.

Happy days.
Bev C
