Thank you so much Cheryl. Your stitching and finishing are amazing - and I love the pins and the roll of ribbon. These will be put to good use. That rose card is really sweet. Many many thanks.
I took some lilac linen and DMC perle threads with me to Wellington and between chatting to family and throughly enjoying Niece Number Two's wedding I made good progress on a small return exchange gift. Tonight when I put the last full stop on this post I am back to my chair to finish off.
Have a good evening everyone.
