As always, apologies for the length of time between posts. It's the school holidays so my online time is even more limited than it is normally and so I'm way behind with my blog reading as well, so I hope you'll understand if I'm not commenting as much as I would like at the moment.

You may remember that back last September I did a 500th post giveaway offering to stitch a gift for the winner. That was Missy and a few weeks ago I heard that she had finally received her prize so I can now share it with you all.

I decided to stitch the 'Le temps qui passe' sewing pocket from A mon ami Pierre, it's stitched on 32 count Summer Khaki Linen with Gloriana silk in India Ink.
