"Home Sweet Home" Cross Stitch and "Home is where my heart blooms" is back from the framers.

Hello,

At the moment I am enjoying doing cross stitch at night while watching absolutely nothing much on the television. The next day I have a wonderful time sorting out what will go with the cross stitch like buttons ric rac and fabric. Of course each project has some Lavender put in with the stuffing.

This is the "Home Sweet Home" cross stitch  I finished making up last Thursday. I used DMC 2726 to do the stitching.


The fabric is some that Lucy brought back for me from one of her trips to New Zealand and the buttons came from my Sister Chris. The pink ribbon has writing on the other side. It is a lovely cotton ribbon and originally came from a beauty package. My girls know to save the ribbon from packaging for me.

The cross stitch pattern was a freebie from a Cathy's blog which has lots of beautiful patterns available.Cathy's  blog is perelles.canalblog.com 

I have something else to share today.


"Home is where my heart blooms" is back from the framers. It has been ready for a while but as my framer is about  80 km's away I have to wait until a family member is heading in that direction.

Happy days.
Bev C
