Two finishes

Thanks to everyone who wished me well - my little cold season illness ended some time ago and I have been quite well ever since. My stitching time has been very limited, though, so all I have to show for the last couple of weeks is this little Lizzie*Kate finish and the rest of my Birdsong II. Birdsong will be a flat fold, but I can't decide how to finish Tea for Two - maybe a pinkeep, maybe a needlecase? Any ideas?

They're both gorgeous Rachel!

Both are lovely... glad you are feeling better.

Beautiful finishes! And lots of reds and blues are for you, what pretty colours. I think I might finish the L*K design into a flatfold too. It would look so sweet next to a matching teapot or teacup!

Glad to hear you are doing well Rachel!

Both of your finishes are beautiful! Isn't Birdsong a lovely sampler? And, I love the little red teacup on your Lizzie Kate piece.

They both look lovely... why not make the tea for two one into a tea cosy or tea box?
