I finished this at the weekend:
Mini Greek Island, (c) Michael Powell Designs
I wasn't sure if I'd be happy stitching the kit, especially as it is on aida, but as there were no partial stitches it was great - quite a quick stitch and very cheerful and fun. I may have to buy some more MPs...
One of my very good school friends is getting married in August, in the Seychelles. I've known Krista since we were 5, so of course I wanted to make her an extra special wedding gift. She's not really a cross stitch girl, so she went for the lace garter (I tend to ask people what they'd prefer). Eeeek. So I need to make about 29 inches of lace by early August. This is what I've done so far (there is a little more under the pins, and at the top - but not much more!):
I'm working this in pipers silks, which are lovely to work with. Sadly I'm running out of bobbins with 3 lace projects on the go... this one took 44 pairs.
