Jane and The Happy Crow cross stitch pattern finished at last.

Hi everyone, How are you all. It looks like it will be another warm day today here in the UK.

Well I have finished the In The Garden cross stitch.


If you remember from previous posts the pattern is produced by Riverdrift Studio
and the artwork by Jane Winton/Jane and the Happy Crow.
Stitched on 14 count cream Aida using Anchor threads. All ready to be framed now then i will be hanging this in my living room.


I also want to show you a small Autumn pillow I finished




 I stitched this on 18 count using DMC threads and you can find the pattern over at Lynn B's blog Here 
 On the reverse side is a lovely verse from Emily Bronte.




 I have been treating myself to this helpful stitch book by Jane Greenoff, beautifully illustrated with picture tutorials showing 101 counted stitches and techniques.



It also came with some fabric and threads which you could practise with, you will find more details at The Cross Stitch Guild
Jane's website offers a lovely collection of patterns and kits with tutorials to, well worth a visit.



Well that's all for now I am off to finish a few chores around the house before walking Bruno who seems to relaxed to go out don't you think.


Till next time

Your garden cross stitch looks lovely Julie. I'm sure you feel wonderful to get it finished. I hope Bruno enjoyed his walk, and I'm sure he looked just as relaxed after it. Have a good day.
