Pretty Garden Sampler - finished



Here's a cross-stitch I finished the other night - very sweet, isn't it! It might go as a gift for someone, though I wouldn't be sorry to keep it, mind you.

Photo below shows where I was last time I posted:



I've got a new cross-stich going - I did pick up the beach huts one and stitch a little on it the other night because I hadn't got a new project out yet, but that one's just too summery, so once I got organised, I switched to a little winter themed one. No photo yet, as it's just a bunch of white rows (snow) - not exciting yet!

And thanks to Rita, who sent me (by attachment this time ) the mock-up she did of the cross blocks, sashed. I really like this layout - I think sashed will have to be the way to go, despite the fact that it will take longer to make them. Like this, they look like stained glass - don't you think?

I love them sashed! So pretty. The little cross stitch is pretty as well. You are getting so much finished, in spite of going back to work. Any hints?
