Part 6 already! and your stitched pieces are looking so good. I am really pleased so do keep them coming in for us all to see.

I have just added another Willow pattern design to my website shop, based on my fusion of decorative blackwork and cross stitches. The first, LJT177 Willow pattern picture, is the companion and I think they will work really well together and both are ideal as cushions or framed pictures.
