Caffe Latte & Where My Heart Blooms

I had a wee finish the other day!


Caffe Latte by Little House Needleworks on Vintage Country Mocha Belfast Linen with Belle Soie silks.

I plan to do these on one piece of fabric; then the tea series on another piece of fabric, as a gift for my mum. I think they'd look perfect in her kitchen, so maybe she'll hang them in there.

Then I started a Blackbird Designs SAL over the weekend with Karen, Nicki & Sue... for Where My Heart Blooms...


Any time I start a Blackbird Designs piece I find it so hard to put it down, and this is no exception! It's at times like these that I'm glad I don't follow any rotations! Though I'm going to be strong ;-) and put it away for a couple of days now and concentrate on another coffee square, otherwise I'll end up having it finished by the end of the week! ;-P (though it does deceptively look like I've stitched more than I have - I still need to fill in the whole left side of that house which is going to take forever!)
