And now for something completely different..........
For Mother's Day I wanted to give my Mother In Law a cross stitch that I have been working on for many years. It is the Fuschia Panel from Heritage Stitchcraft which measures 11cm x 31cm and is stitched on evenweave fabric and is the first large piece of stitching on line that I have done.
I used to do a lot of cross stitch but cardmaking completely took over in 2002. I do like to take a project on holidays with me though as there is something very relaxing about stitching and this piece is very well travelled. It has been to Gran Canaria, Majorca, Dominican Republic and even been on a cruise. I have finally got it framed up and gave it to her today and she loved it. I taught her some years ago how to do cross stitch so she knows how much work has gone into it and fuschia’s are her favourite flower.
I am just glad to have finally completed it and get it framed and I am so pleased she liked it.
