Sunday blues!

I am not having much fun with my stitching this week. It didn;t take me long to stitch the above design but I spent many hours with glue stuck to my fingers trying to make a pillow. Thankfully you only get to see the front. I also think it looks a bit bare and I need to find some buttons to dress it up a bit.
Yesterday I started stitching Wee Seashore by HeartinHand but when I picked it up this morning I discovered that darn frog had kindly visited me and I had to rip, rip, rip. I didn;t have that much done on the design but I just wasn;t enjoying stitching it so it has now joined my ufo pile. Hopefully after dinner tonight I will find something in my stash that will put a smile on my

I think buttons would look fab and yor finishing looks great.

I'm so sorry about your infestation of frogs...they do get around, don't they? Good luck in finding your perfect stitch.

Your pillow is darling and buttons will dress it up more. Please, post a pic after you embellish it.

I was really surprised and delighted to see you'd posted on my blog - and now I've found you too :)

Your stitching is as lovely as always - I agree a few buttons would add to it but I think it looks great anyway x x x Clare
