I have done my silly cow and my union jack flag,
both different than you would expect, I really enjoyed the patterns.
Lizzie Kate spring "ABC" was perfect for the centre, I added a couple of butterfly's and a bee. Faye Whittaker "All our yesterday's" provided the Guard, I added the green and white plume to make him a Welsh Guard. Most of the other patterns were from magazines The World of Cross stitching being the most used.
I have put our grandchildren name and year they were born in the panel, I used a modern text style for this side, I also added Fliss and Su, they were always going to be here, but until the last minute I had not decided where.
Below is my sewing machine and books, both I always have close to me.
My bottom panel I decided to keep simple, I did half cross stitch in the pale creamy yellow
Now all I have to do is frame it, I have all I need, so it will be displayed on our sitting room wall for Saturday.
Thank you for every one who has left me comments along the way, it's has helped me to choose and stitch this very special project.
