Ever been to Urban Threads ? If you love embroidery, you will love this site! They supply their patterns in machine and hand embroidery formats and the prices are great, I'm tellin' you, whatever your taste you'll find something you like. It was Bridgeen who recommended them to me....she knew I'd love it, she was right, she knows my taste :)
Anyways,this is where I got this lovely little pattern.
I have had that flexi frame layin' around for ages, it's alot smaller than what I usually use, it's around 3.5" across, I wanted the stitchery to reflect that, I wanted it be be as delicate as I could get it, so I used just one strand of floss... I wondered what I was getting myself into, but ya know what? The stitches flowed, it was so comfortable to stitch with fine thread! I'm doing that again :)

In other news, ever have one of those days? You know, when EVERYTHING that could possibly go wrong does? I'm having one of them! I wont bore you with the list of disasters that have occured since I awoke this fine morning, but the worst was the fact that my memory card for my camera decided to die on me, I usually clear it quite often so there wasn't too much on it but I got lots of gorgeous pics of the girls work yesterday at the 'Saturday Stitches Club'... gutted...
Ah well! Such is life and all that.... :) To console myself I am staying my pjs and working on this.

I'm taking votes, what do you reckon? Cushion or mini quilt?
