Something finished!

Started this little (6" x 6") stitched picture some time ago and today I finished it. It's stitched on a piece of yellow antique Japanese silk using cotton and silk threads and then backed with a piece of stiff wadding covered in calico. I made a little loop with ribbon and a button. The binding is a piece of cotton that had all the right colours in it! I really enjoyed doing the seed stitching in the background - so meditative. The baby isn't anyone I know - just a photo out of a magazine!
