Cadeaux français

A pocket needlecase with French tapestry needles; an ornate stitch ripper; my French friend spoils me! These were part of my gift from Valie on her recent visit to the UK. It was last week but seems so long ago now! Thank you Valie.

My reels of Soie Surfine for Sew Sew must be swimming the channel instead of taking a plane or the ferry as it seems to be taking ages to get here - I guess I am impatient to be finished stitching this one. I have finished one motif on Margaret's Quaker Emblem of Love RR and will take a picture once I have completed my section. It's stitched in a vibrant red (1089) from Threadworx which is a thread I have not used before. An RR is a great way of trying out new threads and different colour schemes that perhaps one would not normally choose to stitch. This is the last leg of this particular RR and I have thoroughly enjoyed participating and a big thank you to Edgar for moderating! 

The weekend is upon us once again so enjoy!

Thanks for visiting
Take care

    What a lovely gift. I can understand how you feel waiting for the thread. I ordered some stitching supplies over a month ago from the US and I am still waiting for them to arrive. I still haven't accepted that they have gone missing.
