Made for Shaebay for the Phat Quarter book swap. Shae's favourites include the "In Death" series by JD Robb, in which the detective Eve Dallas often says "Bite me!"
Additional: First foray into embroidery stitches. I wanted to make a band sampler so I put Algerian eyes, eyelet stitches, satin stitches and Rhodes stitches in lines. And used Rayon for sparkle. I think I'm a sucker for punishment!
Eve's husband Roarke has a grey button from the suit she wore during the first time they met, hence the grey buttons at the corners. Also, Eve's wedding ring bears the Gaelic inscription "a ghra".
Thanks to my aunt who has read all the books in the series so far.
