Couple of finishes and a new start

I finished a couple of needle cases last night. These photos really do not do them justice, the thread is actually more lilac and blue, not blue and red, and it's a silk, though you can't tell in those. I haven't put them on the sale site yet, but they are available for sale.

I've also made a new start, Alphabet Tree, a freebie from Blue Ribbon Designs. I'm doing it in shades of blue (Wintermints from SSS) on a very pale blue fabric that I believe was hand dyed by Jayne from Jayne's Attic. I can't show you a pic of this yet because I'm stitching it as a surprise for a friend and she occasionally reads my blog...I think.

Did you know...The Shadows are considered by many to be Britain's best ever rock and roll band. It was formed by two lads from Newcastle - Hank Marvin and Bruce Welch.
