One of my first purchases was this Malin Maline hanger 'double cake'. It is the same site I got the 'Pretty Pastries' cross stitch that I have almost completed. I'm hoping this might give me the final push to get it done.
www.malinmaline.com - it is a French website but you can translate it into English if (like me) you need to. They have such pretty things I am always tempted when I visit.
This is the backing fabric I've picked to back the finished piece - having looked again at the samples on the Malin Maline site I may now swap it for a dotty fabric. What do you think?

- Finish some of my works in progress (believe me, there are many!)
- Do something with my cross stitch pieces other than hide them in a box
My new copy of 'Cross Stitcher' arrived this week and along with 'Love Quilting and Patchwork' I can see that my resolutions may not be closer to being realised just yet. I love the cushion cover on the front of Cross Stitcher and am very tempted to add it to my list of planned projects.
On a final note, my 'Secret Stitching Sweetheart' has been revealed. The beautiful heart was completed by Christine at http://alchymyst.blogspot.co.uk. If you haven't checked all the entries out already be sure to head over to Jo's blog to have a look - http://serendipitousstitching.blogspot.co.uk
Until next time,
