Hearts and Flowers
With a new addition to the family it's proving hard to find the time to tackle some of the bigger stitching projects that I have in mind. However, for mother's day recently I did manage to stitch a much smaller project which was a kit that came from a recent edition of "Cross Stitcher" magazine. The little heart shaped felt case in the left of the picture did have a mirror to go with it but I stuffed it full of chocolates instead. (I thought Mum would appreciate those more!!) It took around 4 hours to sew and had a mixture of cross stitch, backstitch and blanket stitching. What drew me to this project were the bright and cheerful colours which made it really fun to stitch.
