"Thankful" Cross Stitch."

Hello,

I created this with some leftover linen 27 count. I found the freebie pattern on the net but unfortunately when I printed it out I found it doesn't have the designers name on it. So thank you to whoever you are for the delightful pattern.


I used DMC 815. I tucked some dried Lavender in while I was stuffing this so when you pick it up you get a lovely perfume of sweet Lavender.

This Sunday we get to celebrate Mother's Day. A time to be thanking our Mum for all their love and work on us over the years. I will be celebrating with three of my children. David is still backpacking. I got a email to say he had been swimming with reef sharks in Fiji and even touched one. I am sure we all gave him a list of things he wasn't allowed to do. We forget to mention swimming with sharks.

David did tell me the Fijian word for Goodbye. Moce which is pronounced Mo-they.


Enjoy the weekend.

Moce.

Your little cushion is lovely Bev. You'll have to remember not swimming with sharks for the next trip! Have a lovely Mother's Day tomorrow. I, of course, will be at the football but I'll get breakfast in bed first! Hugs, Christine

Hello Bev - that little cushion is just lovely & I love the simplicity of it :-) I too wouldve put some dried lavender in it as I adore the scent it releases when you squeeze it gently.
