Look what I found!!!

Last week, when I was trying to find an appropriate embellishment for my Let's Get Stitched brooch, I came across some of the cross stitch pieces that I had made many years ago and just hid in my cupboard in anticipation for the day when I had a chance to finish them off.  I thought I might share some here with you ... since I haven't shared anything in over a month ... and don't really have any 'finishes' to show either!! (Assignments and uni work!!!) ...

 A lovely little hedgehog ...

A couple of gorgeous elephants - he has a name, but I can't remember it.  The other is a bean stalk with a little mouse sitting in one of the upper leaves.


A waddle of penguins :)


And a gorgeous hummingbird & lillies  one that I actually made for my mum.  I think I'm going to finish this off as a pillow as we don't seem to ever get around to putting things up on the walls!!


At the moment I am in Adelaide on the Lets' Get Stitched retreat, having a WONDERFUL time with an absolutely gorgeous bunch of ladies!! I don't think I've laughed so hard in my life!!!! ... Looking forward to tomorrow when we get to spend the whole day stitching and sewing!!! SOOOO glad I was able to make it this year!!! xx

The humming bird would make a pretty cushion! I went through a cross stitch phase too. I had that many I didn't have enough walls for them all! Yours are very sweet!

Hi Larissa, your elephant's name is Humphrey. I've done some cross stitches of him too. I have never laughed so much in my life as I did in Adelaide either. See you in Melbourne next year. Vicki Knight

These are gorgeous, maybe you can pop one in the centre and do a pieced border and turn it into a cushion.
The penguin one would make a cute bolster cushion for your little girls room.
