More cross stitch

I've been enjoying doing a bit of cross stitch lately and here are a couple I have finished in the last week.
The first one is a lavender filled sachet

The next one is a Scottish thistle pin cushion

and the third one is a little kit I got in a magazine last December. I'm planning on making it into a Christmas card at some point so I'm sure you'll be seeing him again at some point.

Speak to you all soon


It's my little sisters birthday at the end of the month although she's not so little anymore she'll be 21!!

So I sat and made her card last night and well the only way I can describe it is PINK!!!

It's her all time favorite colour I hope she like's it.
