The wooden frame was discovered at The salvo's for $3.00-I removed the cardboard print which was all waterstained and warped.
I've pegged some thrifted deco's onto the hanging wire and the result a quick and easy Christmas display.
I have great admiration for those clever cross stitchers like this beautiful lady. I do!
But I am a lazy crafter and I am impatient too. So it gives me great joy to be able to make a little something quickly. I added a little hand stitching on the edge and the doily so I could give myself a tick for some effort!
The perfect finishing touch...a special vintage button from Belles Buttons. I left the old thread in the button as well...it just adds that little bit of character, I think.
When I went looking for my link to Belles buttons, I stumbled across this picture and thought I'd post it again seeing as Christmas is only 13 days away! Are you ready? I'm not!
