Small Finish


This is the Madeira pin keep for a retreat weekend after next. Just imagine the shape of a compact and it will give you a better idea. It's done over one with Lakeside Linen and Gloriana Silks. First time I've used this particular brand of silks - very nice to work with. Next is the biscornu; then I'm off to work on my Mom's Travel Sampler (that she has asked me about recently - yikes). Looking forward to this retreat at the beach. Should be a blast and plenty of stitching!
