A finish, a new start and a surprise

I hope all you ladies had a wonderful Valentine's Day.  I had a nice surprise from Little John.  I came home to find two red roses and a little box of chocolates....he knows his Mamaw loves her chocolate.

My new start is the new design by The Drawn Thread "Snow Day's".  Appropriate for Florida right?  LOL.  It's to be done on Stoney Point linen but I had a piece of 29ct. Glenshee linen that I purchased from Maureen years ago.  This is one that she dyed with natural plants and it's a beautiful dark teal.
I'm using a mixture of silks for the stitching.

.....and my finish is the little cameo pillow.  I finished the edges with a grey heavy quilting thread and did an X stitch around the outside.  It's quite little but I like it.

I'm off to start dinner.  

Blessings, Barbara

Your cameo turned out super. I would love to see a close up of the side and how you did the X. How thoughtful of Little John to bring roses and chocolate to his Mamaw. Look forward to seeing your progress on the new start.

How thoughtful of little John, he's too cute.
The Cameo is pretty, and Snow Days will look great on that beautiful piece of linen.
