Saturday 12 th April 2014......... UPDATE...........

(Borrowed from Google Images)

I just had to......had to let you see what I have done with the lovely stitch I did for the lady that helped me tidy my garden.

After a lot of suggestions I was torn between the pin keep and a friendship/Thank You mini pillow... I thought seeing as how I need the practice on the sewing machine I went with the friendship pillow.

I did have some other great suggestions by you all out there.. they are not forgotten.. I will at some point 'have a go'!  You know me I will try anything... bring on the challenge!

This is only the first time that I have used the sewing machine without step by step guidance from my mum.  I am thrilled that I made it all myself... I actually am speechless I made it myself!  Feeling very proud :)

So here is what I did...

I am so happy I made it.... 

I have also made a gift tag for it..

The front...

The back...

On the finished gift...

My mum had a look at it and said its really good seeing as how its only my second time on the sewing machine!

Its not perfect, I know that.. there are little minor issues here and there.. but I am still learning so hence why I am thrilled :)

I just hope that the lady likes it now....

Off to stitch something else now! :)

Smiles to you all :)
