Birthday Present FOR Jessie

Hi! Finally I can share my stitched piece with you!
This is my first work in 2009 that is for my friend Jessie's Birthday.
I knew that I haven't been well, so I started this from the last year... so it took almost 2 months to finish...
Anyway, Happy Birthday, Jessie!
Sorry, it didn't arrive to you in time...

I know that Jessie loves Lizzie*Kate, so when I was looking for the design for her Birthday, I thought this would be nice to stitch for her Birthday Present!
This is stitched on 40ct Wichelt Linen (Sandstone / Tea) which I like the best!


Around the candle and cake, the chart was written to one cross stitch, but I thought it would be so cute and beautiful to add pearl beads instead!
Isn't this lovely?!


When I framed this stitched piece, there was blank area both right and left sides so I added linen laces, it was quite simple and beautiful without laces, though I thought Jessie likes laces so decided to add! Yes, it's more cute than nothing...

Jessie's name and her Birthday was stitched on 1 over 1 on 40ct, it was quite hard for me as I have bad sight, though when I finished I was really happy and hoped she will like it!
It was very pleased to stitch this lovely design for her!
I do really hope she will like what I've sent for her, also the PINK goodies!
I forgot to take photos of them, though I think she will post what I sent.

There are so many ideas and designs that I want to stitch in my mind, I wish I could stitch all of them!!!
Uhmmm... what shall I stitch next? I'm now thinking a lot as seeing my stash!
But finally I just ordered Linen and Vikki Clayton's silks for BP Quaker SAL, so I'm very loooking forward to start it! And hope the linen colour is the right colour what I want!


Take care and have a lovely day!

And thanks for visiting!

Happy Stitching!
