A Special Photo for Trudette


I said to Trudette that I would post a photo of my embroidery, its supposed to be Hydrangea Flowers, I do so hope that she likes it, and I hope you do to. I actually did it about 15 years ago, I traced an outline from a design in a book and then stitched it with long and short stitches.
And I have it hanging up over my bed, just hope it doesnt fall of the wall and hit me or my poor hubby. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxxxxxxx

Shirley this is beautiful, such a gorgeous picture it must have taken you ages to make. I used to do cross-stitch before I was in a car accident but can no longer hold the hoop for any lenghth of time,on the plus side If I still could I probably wouldn't have discovered cardmaking
love & hugs Mandy xx

This is beautiful Shirley. You are very talented. I used to cross stitch a long time ago but am not neat enough for proper embroidery.
