I’m working some really mental hours at work at the moment with a project not going so well that I’m supposed to be helping with the testing phase, plus another high profile project that’s just materialised where I’ve been asked to be the project lead, another two projects already underway for early next year, an entire overhaul of our main computer system we use (meaning training etc required along with the testing), and my main work colleague off on annual leave (who never provides a handover document) … my brain cells are in overdrive, but on the whole I’m loving it, even though I could quite easily leave the long hours for someone else. So I apologise in advance for the crappy grammar etc that I’m sure you’re going to find in this post, but I’m about to fall in a heap and get some well-needed Zzzzzzzzz……
I don’t think I ever showed the finished version of my French design purchased on holiday earlier in the year. Mum helped me by stuffing it with polyfil on her last visit, and I stitched up the seam to put the finishing touches into it. I need to get a little basket to have it on display with some of my other favourite items in my bedroom. I think I also need to stitch this one again in traditional red threads.

stitched on 28ct white Cashel linen
with recommended DMC threads, with Mill Hill beads in the whip-stitched border
And here is the exchange I received from my partner:
