OOOH, just gorgeous .... I would love to stitch a 'C' - I haven't done much applique/embroidery before and could very easily be tempted by these patterns - especially since they were designed with simple running stitch and blanket stitch .. looks so easy to do :)

Cheryll said...

Oh you guys are soooo nice! I would stitch "K" and give it to my friend.
Fingers crossed I get lucky! xxx :)

Edi said...

You lucky, lucky girl. What a wonderful sneak-peak you've had. And what a fabulous fun weekend. Can't wait to see all the fun you were up to :)
