Live strong as the mountains

I can reveal Julie's birthday card/gift today as I presented it to her at work this morning ready for her birthday on Saturday.
This is it when I had finished stitching it. I since mounted it in a dark brown square card but seem to have forgotten to photo it then......

I chose the Native American theme as she had expressed an interest in it. I was lucky with the beads and braid in turquoise as it turned out to be her favourite colour. All morning she kept looking at it and admiring it. I am so glad she liked it. The design was one of three out of an old Cross Stitcher magazine (yes I use their patterns alot!) Now she wants me to do the other 2 for her!!

I have just come back from my stitching club and have worked on my View from a Terrace. I am aiming to finish this tomorrow night - no excuses!!!!

A message to my friend Nicki - sorry I have got you hooked on stitching again - let me know which charts you end up buying!!!!!!!
