beginning of book 

and another view of them ..lol
Soooo there you have it :) I was inspired by "the stitchers book " (which I am designing one as we squeak :) found on the web via http://www.violarium.com/ 
Look under tutorials and follow the links from there ..... some of the books were stitched in 2006 and are absolutely adorable ... I hope I can do justice to the concept as the patterns were all in French magazines long ago printed soo keep your eyes peeled as I will be giving you all a peek once I am happy with it :) 


The ribbon rose idea was taken from one of my card magazines and fills the gap nicely ..lol 


Ok sooooo hope you like ???? 


I have also been doing some stitching on my Queen Bee and here is a progress report on her as well ....
Queen Bee LHN 
I am going to put a little sparkle into her wings(they are only half done atm ) and hopefully once completed she will be finished and put on one of my boxes and displayed in my stitching room.....


well I am having some friends coming to visit the mouse house tomorrow so I shall be busy with the tea pot and stash showing etc to Gillie and Teejay and hopefully have a a lovely girlie natter session too heheheh 


Righty ho hope every one is well and happily stitching to their 15 challenges tune......lol
