Gentle stitches, don't those words sound relaxing. This month has just flown by but I did manage a little bit of gentle stitching.
I have had this design printed out for ages, apologies to the designer your name didn't appear on the paper pattern otherwise I would let everyone know who designed it. It was stitched on 14 count Aida. I chose my own DMC colours.
I then recycled the cross stitch pattern into some papers for some hexagons and decided to add the little bluebird design I stitched a few years back.
I am continuing to pick up the Paris cross stitch and stitch a little every now and again, I have done a bit more since this photo was taken. I am working on the top right had corner at the moment.
I did have one finish for OPAM (one project a month). I decided to make up a bag with the cross stitch design on one side.
The other side had the hexies.I even managed to find a little silver bluebird to attach to the zipper.It was posted to its new owner yesterday and the post office assures me it will only take 6 days to get there!
