Sneak Peek and a give away!

Such Friendship by Annie Beez Folk Art
This new chart will also be winging its way to my distributor today, and up in my Etsy shop by the end of the week.
The model is stitched on 32ct. flax linen using a combination of sampler threads from Crescent Colours, Gentle Art and Weekes Dye Works. I used a piece of antique lace along the side when I finished it!Isn't it ooo-la-la pretty?? 
I just love antique laces and trims and will scour antique shops endlessly looking for them!
The little flower centers are stitched with a leviathan variation stitch and there is a wee Rhodes heart in the bottom right hand corner.

Leave me a comment on this post and I will enter your name for a free chart of this design on Friday!!
