"Hearts" Cross Stitch Sampler.

Hello,

I have just finished stitching the "Stitching Challenge" for February. Yes I know a few days late but it is all done and dusted now. Our theme for February was Hearts. I chose to do some cross stitch. I started off following a pattern but quickly ditched it and looked through several of my cross stitch books and got different ideas. I made it up as I went along- no great master plan.

As with all our monthly stitching challenges we have to use what we have on hand. I had the packet of Aida Cloth in my cupboard for many years. The button I bought a few months back intending to use it in a cushion. Unfortunately the project involved wool felt which is not available here locally. So that project was put aside.
I love the little verse that is at the bottom of the sampler.Tomorrow I will give it a good wash and press and take it to the framer. This months "Stitching Challenge" involves a Rabbit. I wonder what Anita and I will come up with.
Happy Stitching.
Bev C
