A little gift for my friend (and hairdresser) Sue for her birthday, which is in a couple of weeks. She doesn't use a computer so I know I won't spoil the surprise by posting this now. Sue has been my hairdresser for 30 years, so when I move to Dubai in a few weeks time I'm going to really miss our monthly girlie chats while she does my hair!
The design is 'Friends Count', a freebie from The Victoria Sampler which can be found on the website. I've used the listed DMC threads and 28ct cream Cashel linen and finished it as a bookmark, but the design can also be finished framed by omitting the Nun's Stitch edging.
This is the second time now that I've stitched this for a friend and I expect it won't be the last - I think it's a lovely gift to give, and as well as being enjoyable to stitch, it stitches up nice and quickly too! :o)
