I made something !!!

it is pretty rare for me to make something in a day anymore , given my predeliction for
1×1 stitching of big charts on 30 plus count fabs, but i was motivated enough the other day to make my purr-fect bookmark kit up from The Cats Whiskers/DinkyDyes as i wanted a gift for a friend.. a non stitchy friend for a change….
i will apologise in advance for the pictures. I have no idea what Paul was thinking, he took them after i went to take muffy for a walk, he then sent them to me from work. I asked him WHY he did not open the curtain instead of taking them in a poorly lit area of the lounge, i had set it up on the table by the window for a reason… sigh
when i asked he said, oh, didn’t think of that… double sigh

it was meant to be stitched 2×2 on 32 ct linen and i did 1×1 on 34 ct cream legacy linen ( my very fav linen this one) so it is tiny, but i like that .. lol and THIS time i used the LE  Silk provided by Dinky Dyes, i had forgotten how nicely DD’s stitch up… just wish they had a bit more sheen…
i will be sending it off to her today..
so… the sad dark dingey pics…
