Kims beautiful gift, a free pattern in progress for Autumn

Hi everyone, look at this beautiful gift I received from Kim at Wisdom with Needle and Thread blog, 
isn’t it amazing!

Kim hand painted this beautiful bird on the hand made box and finished it with 24 carat gold paint!

Also included was the gorgeous scissor fob and the beautiful fabric and threads, thankyou so much for this lovely gift, it was such a pleasure to receive, I shall treasure it always!
Kim is a very talented lady, can you believe she made 60 gifts for bloggers to celebrate her 60th birthday! Go check out the other gifts she made for her readers at Kims blog here
Stitching news

I have been designing a new seasons Autumn pattern for 2016 to match the Summer design that I made a couple of months ago, it is not quite ready yet but I will post the finished design with the pattern on Friday. 
On the reverse I stitched a lovely quote from Emily Bronte…..
Every leaf  speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the Autumn tree.

I thought it was perfect for the reverse of this design.
I accidentally chose the wrong count fabric, I wanted it to match the Summer design, so I am stitching it twice, the first one is smaller but it looks cute.
You can get the Summer freebie here on my blog and there is a matching little bag with  bumble bee gift tags here I will be designing a little free Autumn bag to match, that will be available soon.

Until next time, happy stitching! 
Best Wishes and Happy Stitching.

    Looking forward to the autumn version. I stitched the summer one for an exchange. The recipient loved it. I've posted pictures on my blog and linked here so others can come get one too. Thank you for your kindness.
