Birthday Gift for Karen

I heard today that Karen received my little birthday gift for her today... on her actual birthday. I cannot believe how quickly this arrived in the UK, especially with so many other packages having gone "missing" for so long.... many of them, really. You know, Christmas rush and all. But anyhow, Karen's had perfect timing. This little biscornu was so hard to photograph. The chart is a freebie from the Kissy Cross site and had no color key, so I chose to go with the warm autumn colors that I had recently pulled for Cathy's Blessed Be pin pillow... Each flower cluster in each corner is a different autumnal color, but my photos did not pick that up well. I am glad you like it Karen! Happy birthday, dear friend :-)

And for today's stitching... I didn't stitch for long, and what I did do was a bit more on Serenity. Tonight's photo shows the true color of the Luna linen (finally).

Kathy O., if you are visiting today, I got your thank you card yesterday :-)

Stitched on today: Serenity
