Floral Extravaganza

I got a big surprise when I opened Cross Stitch Collection (UK cross stitch magazine) last Friday. My letter was published, hooray! I love flowers and sent them pictures of my vases of flowers a couple of months ago. These flowers were from various issues of Collection. I had forgotten that I had sent that e-mail until I saw my letter in the magazine. I am a collector of magazines both cross stitch and hardanger.


Here are some closeup pictures of the flowers.WIP





I have started another piece "Waterlilies on a pond" from this magazine.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate and love all the lovely comments.

Happy Stitching!

They look great. Seeing them stitched up they look better than in the magazine. This is also one of my favorite magazines to buy. I have to remember to go to the bookstore each month to get it.
