Stitching angels

I've had a hard time getting motivated this week.  Everything I've tried to make has gone wrong so I've just been winding thread round bobbins.  I was determined to sew something for the Friday Night Sew In at Handmade by Heidi but I just didn't fancy working on any of the projects I'd started, so I decided to work on a new embroidery.  I found this lovely little stitchery pattern at Elin's Kreative Side, she's got some great free patterns.

So Friday night, husband out on site, dinner eaten, rabbits fed, I sat down and sewed:












I've still got a way to go before it's finished, but this will make a lovely Christmas present for my best friend sewn into a little hanging cushion.

I look forward to the next Friday Night Sew In!  It's just a shame I didn't get something Finished For Friday this week...

Hi Wendy,

Dropping in from FNSI. I'm a quilter and general craftsbody but cant sew a stitch to save myself. Love your embroidery - it beautiful. I think it takes great patience to be a stitcher.
