Cross Stitch Girl

I stitched this little cross stitch girl for a very special stitching friend.

The pattern is from a 90s edition of Cross Country Stitching magazine.

I just put sewed some pretty fabric around the edges and made it into a little pillow complete with buttons and pins.

She loves cross stitch and I didn't want to spoil the surprise by blogging about this before I gifted it to her.  I think she liked it!

Love, Liz

Pom poms and crochet

I've just got to attach these pom poms to my red, white and blue granny square crochet blanket and it is finished!

I started stitching it to mark the Queen's Jubilee, but didn't quite finish it in time.  I have another "jubilee" crochet blanket which I made earlier this year.  You can see it here

Love the tin by Emma Bridgewater - chose the yarn colours to go with it.

Don't you just love pom poms!

Love, Liz
