I finally put the last bit of back stitching on to the design and my Heilan Coos look great!
I just have to make it in to the actual bookmark now....and that part might take me a while! I always seem to be the queen of procrastination when it comes to finishing off my stitching into the final item.
Here's a close-up....
...isn't that the cutest face? And I love the thistles too.
In case anyone is interested the kit is called Heiland Coos and is made by Textile Heritage.... but best of all, (well, in my opinion anyway!) the kits are made in Scotland!
And finally here's a quick look at this month's (or maybe last month's) Crazy magazine with my school designs.....

Back to school already...where did the summer go? Yup, we'll be talking Christmas designs soon! ;)
Until next time...happy stitching!
