This is a small cross stitch project that I did for a friend who is going to celebrate her 10th Wedding Anniversary. She loves flowers and I thought this would be something a little different.
Cross stitch is something that I had not tried until a year ago and decided to give it a go. I started off with a small kit that I found for 50pence. I found I liked it and got more and began making things for friends as gifts. I usually make something small as I like being able to complete something in a couple of days.
This was a kit, you get everything you need and all you have to do is follow the instructions. It is a nice way of giving something personal and something that you have made. Cross stitching is easy to do and the effects are pretty as well.
I want to get some magazines with patterns so I can make some things for cards as well. I can sit and do that whilst recovering from my operation in August.
