I’m catching up:
Cross-stitched this from a vintage Victorian cross-stitch book of my mom’s – extracted the little bouquet from a larger pattern. My aida is kinda taking a beatin’ on this one.
Also cross-stitched the butterfly from the same book. The mountains and sun – which I love – commemorates our recent trip to the Smoky Mountains.
The leaf – I wanted to try out raised fishbone stitch. I then needed to stitch up a red bud tree – they’re blooming all over the place here in Tennessee, and I just love them.
And a tulip, because the lines are so clean. Plus, it’s spring!
