A little finish

I forgot to post a picture of my last holiday "finish" so here it is...

It's a Hatched and Patched design that has been a UFO for a long time because I was a bit scared of making the angel, doing the embroidery and making the puffs for the flowers. I managed it in the end though :o) and I really enjoyed doing the handstitching - so much so that I've started browsing at stitchery designs for another project. Typically I'm really taken by big projects like *A Quilters Journey*. I'm not sure about committing to something that big and costly because I need really good instructions when I'm doing something new and I want to make sure that's what I'm getting. If anyone has any favourite patterns I designers I'd love to hear about them.

Happy weekend everyone!
