Hello Dear Reader,
I don't have much to show this month! I haven't been stitching ..... I've been working on "A Fragile Nature", but ..... when we were shopping the other day I had a look at the magazines, like you do, and I just couldn't resist buying a copy of the March issue of Cross Stitcher which had this lovely free gift, and as a free gift this project qualifies for GG!
"Love & Roses"
Usual disclaimers apply here ..... I am not being paid, etc... however the free gift really appealed to me because it wasn't Aida, I think the fabric is linen, and the kit includes ribbons with instructions on how to make a spider web ribbon rose which is something I've been wanting to do but not had the ribbon to do it. The pattern is a mix of cross stitch and embroidery, with felt for the backing and a badge pin, oh and buttons too!
And so on Friday evening I was quite excited to get stitching!
It's a nice small project, easy to carry about, and it will be a pretty brooch, and since the badge I’d been making hasn't progressed lately I thought this would be a nice "quick” little project.
Now I just need some hand cream to sooth my dry winter hands to stop them catching on the cottons!
