This evening I'm hoping you might like to see my latest thrifty finds.
I've been so unlucky in the charity shops lately but last week I struck gold:0)
Yes , three beautifully hand embroidered cross stitch pictures for £1.49 !! How lucky is that. I'm sure the kits to make these beauties must have been quite expensive...not to mention the hours and hours of work that has gone into them. I love this cute little hedgehog.........
And this dresser top with it's pretty crockery and hanging hearts, how perfect.....
The third one is much bigger, about 12 inches by 10 inches . There must be hundreds of hours of painstaking work in this picture with it's patterned plates and pretty tulips, just stunning......
I'm not sure what I will do with this large picture, but I think it deserves to be seen and admired.
I would love to include the smaller pictures in some patchwork ...but it may be a while before I get a chance to do that.
It's a little odd wonder about the reason they were donated .
At least , though the person who laboured over these beauties will probably never know it, they are being seen and I'm sure admired ,by lots of people here now.
Have a wonderful weekend.
