A tiny finish for Gifted Gorgeousness - July 2020

A big “Hello” to all my blogging friends!

This month I actually have a tiny cross stitch finish to share. 
I’m linking to Jo’s Gifted Gorgeousness and as I don’t often have small finishes I am  taking the opportunity to link to  Mary’s “Small Finishes” also!

I haven’t been shopping since the lockdown began here in March and suddenly realised it was our friends anniversary coming up. So out came all my old cross stitch magazines while I searched for ideas. I was going to stitch a wine bottle with a white blank label but hubby said that no bottle would have a blank label, so I added a backstitched pattern on it.  Then there were patterns for champagne flutes but nothing with red wine so I drafted my own glasses, shorter and wider. 

I know it’s only a small piece but still a lot of love went into it!

Excuse the hasty photos. Once the stitching was finished and attached to the card I had to race to catch the post (well hubby did actually!) for it to arrive in good time.

So now I’m looking for something similar to whet my appetite for more cross stitching!


I do hope everyone is keeping safe and well, and getting lots of stitching done!!!!





Hugs,

The pandemic means we have to find new solutions, like digging out old patterns and adjusting them to fit what we want to make.
Your card is charming and very special for a very special day.

Your card will be much-treasured I know. I love the fact that you were able to not only personalize the design with their names but also the little details on the label. Well done!

It is beautiful Barbara! Cross-stitching is never quick IMHO!! My husband and I celebrate that same number of years married this month. Of course I was married when I was what five years old? Wink
