LHN- "Nature's Beauty"

I've finished this one a while back but haven't posted it here at once as i was working on the two motifs taken from this design. It took me longer than i had expected as i have to complete a couple of exchanges in between.
Thought to take the motif from this design for the monthly challenge and do love how it turned out oh except the pins, i really don't have much choice with what i have so this will do for the meantime. Also taken another motif for the floss ring.

Nature's Beauty- 32ct minster linen, DMC

Scissor pocket- 36ct linen, DMC

Floss ring tag- 28ct linen, DMC

This is my first with this type of finishing and i am happy with how it turned out, i was hesitant to try as it looks so difficult to make when i've seen a few pictures on other's blog. I think if it weren't for the monthly challenge i still haven't tried it.
The floss ring tag is just an extra as i love the flower motif too.
Sorry for the pictures though as they are not that great.

Here's a couple of pictures taken last sunday during our walk with Max at the dyke. You can see one of the tourist vessel at the background and other private yachts. Quite nice weather then compare to
today's weather and the coming days where they predicted some rains.

Many thanks for stopping by and all the nice comments. I really appreciate them all.
