I mentioned how lovely it is to give things which one has made in a previous domestic arts post; I've been wondering for a while what I could do with my cross stitches and now I have a solution. Whilst at Hobbycraft last week I purchased a number of very small cross stitch kits which can be made into cards. This little design only took 2 hours to complete and I think is a lovely thing to send someone.
The design on the left came from a kit; I liked the pattern very much but not the colours that they had chosen, so I decided to make it again with some pretty pink threads that I had in my sewing box. It's definitely a pattern that I will use again for cards. I hope that I might be able to utilise some of the patterns in the other kits that I have bought in different colours.
