Cross Stitch Finish

I've just finished this cute little cross stitch by Madame Chantilly.  I loved this the moment I saw the pattern.


I thought this little lady with her blue dress and white apron would look cute stitched on my light pink fabric.  I dyed this fabric myself using cranberry juice!  The pattern gives a few different ways of stitching her.  Love that little cross stitched sheep too - might to that later.


Now comes the bit I don't enjoy - finishing it off!  I'm not very good at this bit!  Would love to turn it into a cute little pillow.


I thought using light blue gingham fabric would suit it best.


Got another finish to show you tomorrow!

Love, Liz
