flower shop - Cross Stitch Collection 251

The latest issue of Collection hits the UK shops today and in it there`s another beautiful Maria Diaz design, the wee sister of the doll`s house I stitched a few months ago. After that biggie, this flower shop was a refreshing "mini" and with its 65 hours it very snugly fit into my photographic schedule, lol. So here are my 5-hourly pics of the project, and finally the framed version from the magazine - I`m not sure if there`s a single photo here that`d show you the beautiful olive shade of the fabric... but it is gorgeous, I lurved stitching on it! OK, the photos:
















Hmmm, I wondered what was different: I forgot to string them together into a `movie`! Apologies for the extra scrolling - I don`t know if it`s any consolation but if your wrist feels a bit tender, I can totally relate: I`ve been working flat out for the past N weeks, mostly on Christmas designs... yep, it`s that time of the year! ;) Plus I`m stitching a tapestry for DMC, my first one ever, and I`m enjoying it immensely (even though it puts a different type of strain on my wrists), can`t wait to show you! :) Oh, that reminds me: this flower shop`s turned me into a `cover girl` again - I love it! Since Collection uses the current issue as their profile pic on Facebook, I can see it now every day for the next month, mwahaha! Thank you for reading my ramblings and scrolling 5 miles to see all my pictures - happy stitching! :)
