A bear and a bouquet


I haven't made a card for four days now which is unusual for me but these are unusual times. I have been cross stitching and just finished this one. It is a 5" hoop and the design is from The Little Stitchery Etsy shop, part of Lili of the Valley. All designs, as well as digis are half price through March including the new launch.

I love these designs as stamps so I was really pleased to see them come out as cross stitch designs.  I have so many threads that I just find the nearest match to the suggested colours when I start a new project, only buying new ones if I really don't have the right colour. The flowers though could be any colour and are an ideal way of using up leftover pieces of thread.

Gorgeous creation Marianne. Love that sweet bear image, it's super cute! You've done a lovely job with this. Four days and no card crafting?! That is unusual for you! Hope you're finding lovely things to fill your days, this certainly qualifies! Stay safe. Hugs, Wends xoxo
