I think I mentioned a few posts ago that Sunday has turned in to my 'cross stitch' day. Well in a change from usual programming last Saturday saw me putting in the last few stitches in the Wildflower piece.
James had to work so with the alarm going off way too early for the weekend and me unable to get back to sleep I decided to drag my sorry butt out of bed and get on with the weekend chores.  Yes you read that right this is me getting on with weekend chores, lol.  No really it is, I was waiting for the load in the washing machine to finish :)
So there it is all done.  It needs a bit of an iron, but I'll wait until I source a frame to get it looking all pristine.
This piece really was a joy to stitch.  Nice bold blocks of colour and pretty lettering are definitely among my favourite things.  I'm looking forward to hanging this on the gallery wall I'm planning in my bedroom.

The next cross stitch I'm working on is of an altogether more geeky nature but I'll tell you about that sometime soon I'm sure.

Looks great, even without the fancy buttons it came with originally. I've enjoyed watching you stitch it, and agree with you that it was great to stitch. Not sure how many cross-stitch pieces you have waiting to be stitched, but let me know if you fancy anything you see me doing - you are always welcome to the patterns once I've finished with them (I'm thinking in particular of the little sheep at this point...) Have a nice weekend!

Congrats on the great finish Angela. Can you tell me the designer and the name of the design.

Thanks, Linda

That's a beauty Angela. It reminds me of an Art Deco design. I really love it. When I see something lovely like this I think I wonder if I should take up cross stitch again. :)
