And so, in the spirit of bring the pretty, here is one of my cross-stitch projects

It's called Morning Glory and the chart is by the Drawn Thread. I am beginning to consider that my sampler craving might actually be an addiction to their patterns. Suffice to say, this was a really fun thing to stitch. I used the Weeks Dye Works threads as that's what the chart came kitted with. The fabric was a little hard to find as I had never considered the existence of 34-Count Legacy Linen.

The one big change I made was replacing the plain and boring button with something prettier from the beading stash. The standard one looked like something off a school shirt - not cool. ETA: I also replaced the french knot flowers on the grape hyacinth with a load of rococo/ queen stitch, which I can do. Bbd was amazed to see that I am just as bad at french knots as I say I am. I think my way shows off the multi-tonal effect of the hand-dyed better.

Uh, that's it for the moment. I hope you enjoy it!
