Baby Gift Box, and some news…




Morning all, before today’s card I have a bit of exciting news for you
I know many of you card makers out there (myself included) also love sewing so I think you’ll be pleased to know that we will shortly have 4 of your favourite Lili of the Valley fairies available as cross stitch charts…

Here’s a little sneeky peek…

  52. This is just gorgeous. My BF's DIL is having her first baby, a little girl...I sent her this post and said: You need to make one of these. :) This is totally darling and something that would be cherished! Beautiful!

    I LOVE the idea of cross-stitch patterns for a few of the cute LOTV images. I can see me doing an angel and turning it into a Christmas ornament with a little frame around it. What a very special present that would make for someone!
