Pennant of Friends


At last I have my little pennant finished!! When I was in Brisbane in April and staying with Bethel, we had a lovely day when Louise and Jane came up for a get together! Bethel had organised this little project for each of us as she is enjoying working with fabric and stitching this year.
Jane decided she just couldn't possibly make one - well she had hers finished first and she did way way more stitching on hers than I did. Hers is beautiful as were everyone's and it was just so nice to be sitting at the outdoor table stitching and chatting and eating in between!
Sooooo Bethel, you WILL be proud of me for actually finishing something?? I must admit I had to almost tear the house apart to find a suitable needle!! How sad is that. I DID remember how to make a tassel though - a bit of a miracle.
