Another Birthday Gift Finished :-)

I started out thinking I’d embroider a cute cup & saucer on a mug rug & a bit like Topsy the idea grew. A little still life that then needed some flowers. I had a light bulb moment when I thought to use Lynne’s Birth flowers in the vase. So instead of a mug rug it’s a wall hanging.

I’m really pleased with it & I plan a few more similiar projects, which will probably lead to a new range of patterns.lynne gift lynne gift 3

Due to my usual issues with procrastination, although I finished this in time for Lynne’s birthday, I didn’t manage to get it to her on time!!! Luckily she was working nearby today so was able to drop in for a cuppa & I gave her her pressie. I even did some baking, a lovely English teacake & a gf date loaf for me.

This wall hanging/xxxos mug rug looks wonderful. You stitching is just so lovely.

Thanks Julie, I just posted a similiar one off today for a birthday pressie. It's in brighter colours with Sweat Peas in the vase for an April birthday. I'll post pics after she receives it.
