A now for something different ...


... I used to do a lot of cross stitching, but had to give up because my back suffered too much from sitting in one position concentrating on it. This is the last item that I cross stitched, done a while ago, but never blogged.

Unfortunately, impossible to get a photo without a bit of reflection on the glass - and I don't want the bother of taking it out of the frame.

  2. It is such a sweet piece, Hazel--too bad that you can't cross-stitch anymore! :^) Thanks for sharing with us at Lady Anne's! :^)

  3. This is so tender, Hazel! Very well done!

    I used to CC, too, and miss it ... but by the time I feel the urge to get back to it, I probably won't be able to do it physically either. Dang shame.

  4. (I used to cross-stitch, too, but it takes so long and then there's all the faff and expense of framing... I like paper best!)

    Your stitching is so neat and clean! I love Faye Whittaker's sweet, nostalgic designs. Fab work, hun!!

    love Mags B x

  9. Visiting from DLART Thankful Thurs Linky Party. Wonderful handmade creation. I have one made that was given to me of a Hummel scene of a little girl looking over a fence at Swans. I have it hanging in my bedroom.

  12. Adorable! This takes me back to the years (many of them) when counted crosstitch was my hobby of choice.

    Thank you for participating in this week's {PIN}Spirational Challenge.
