A Finish!!

Dear Stitching Friends
Happy New Year to you all!

I have finally finished Gardner Pocketbook.

Stitched with the kit 35 count linen and AVAS.

This was a very relaxing stitch.  I will post more photos when I have made it into a pocketbook but it may be awhile as I don't have an LNS so will need to wait to purchase supplies.  I have some pink dupion silk for the lining but need something for the binding.

I am hoping to now get back to my Parrot, Leopard, Lion (especially after seeing Vera's wonderful progress) but it will be slow going as I am stitching it in tent stitch over one on 35 count linen and find it difficult to see at night so it is restricted to daytime stitching which is very limited around here.

Oh for more stitching time!!!
Best wishes to you all
PS For some reason, I have not been able to add labels to my last few posts.  I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but when I click on a label name it jumps around on my screen but doesn't actually stay selected.  Has anyone else had a problem or am I doing something really stupid?

I liked this design on the website and now I like it even more!

I added the labels to your post but wondered if you are using a device rather than a PC to post? I can't do labels if I use my iPad.
