Add A Little Perle

I got out my perle and added some hand stitching to my porthole. A circle of running stitch, and then a circle of stem stitch. A dig in my stash produced a precious piece of Just Wing It and I had the backing. I did keep to a simple envelope closure though.


It all came together quickly and easily. And for the first time in ages I got to take photos outside. No artificial yellow light. Seems so odd. But good, oh so good.


I hope the recipient likes it.
