Curio Ladybird by Heart in Hand - a win from Heather
Thanks to Mii stitch and Stitchers Anon for inspiration and tips on finishing. Mine are nowhere near the standard they produce but I'm very proud of them for a first attempt. The ones that have fabric on the front are backed in the same fabric. The mouse and the sampler are lying on what's left of the backing fabric.
So proud in fact that I would like to offer one as a giveaway prize! If you would like to win one, please leave a comment on this post only, saying which one you would like, and leaving a tip on finishing. If you don't do finishing, then you can still enter. The first one out of the hat next Friday morning will win their chosen piece, plus a few other goodies.
This week I've worked on two of my CJC pieces...
