My first finish for 2010 has come slowly but here it finally is.
I've enjoyed stitching Summer Iris. The thread colours went well with the fabric and with the personalising of the year and my initial, I'm pleased with the end result. There's no graph if you want to change these two features from what's on the original design so I've had to create my own 'J' and work out which way I wanted to do the '1' in 2010. It took me about five attempts for each before I was happy with them.
One day I'll complete this little piece and turn it into a pincushion or the like.

I'd like to try to do the wool strawberry for which instructions also come with this pattern, one day.
In the meantime I will show you some more pictures of my stitched Summer Iris.
Thank you for taking the time to look and comment.
