It's A Stitch Up!

Good morning peeps, it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts today and our theme is 'A Stitch Up!' hosted by ME :-) Our wonderful sponsors are Flonzcraft and Marianne Design.

I decided to pick up a needle & thread for this challenge and hand stitched my image and sentiment using a chart from a cross stitch magazine. The image is mostly back-stitching which is quick to do and I really enjoy.

Stitching chart & threads - from a cross stitching magazine
Ribbon & twine - stash
