A Rose by Any Other Name!

22 Oct

I had forgotten about making this gift until yesterday.

I start things, meaning to blog about them and get distracted by something else. Brain like a seive!

Anyway I get Mollie Makes magazine every month and often they contain a little project.

Earlier this year they sent a little envelope containing everything you need to make a little cross stitch rose.

It really was only an afternoons stitching before the thing was complete.

With my friend’s birthday approaching I popped to ikea to get a box frame and placed my latest creation inside.

048 050

I felt like the frame needed something extra, so I pulled out some vintage buttons and glued them to the corners.

My friend was genuinely pleased with her gift and it actually goes really well in her vintage style kitchen.
