a finish & china

I have finally finished the heart shaped stitchery i was working on. Lots of embroidery on this one. But i love it.
Yesterday afternoon my daughters & i stopped in an op shop & i found these gorgeous little plates.
Bargain price too for English china.
I just loved the little blooms on them.

Happy Stitching,

Beautiful stitchery and the plates are sweet too. I have started collecting English plates to use for every day use...I think a cake tastes just a wee bit sweeter eaten off a pretty plate!
