When I went out for a walk the other night I noticed that there roses had started appearing in some gardens.
I thought that it would be nice to celebrate these colourful blooms with a little ATC project.
Having a little extra time today I thought that I would attempt to incorporate some needlecrafts in the ATC run.
I had a dig through my supplies and found a pattern from Sarah Trevor, Editor of Cross Stitch Crazy magazine. The pattern was actually for a longer bookmark however I decided that I would just do one of the roses in order to save on time.
Using only basic cross stitch and backstitch I set to work.
A few hours later (and a few drama type shows on Radio 4 Extra) and I was done :)
To finish this and have it fit in with the ATC concept I used my Brother Scan N Cut to cut out a backing panel and frame. I sandwiched the finished piece between the two with some PVA glue – and that was that!
I’m starting to wonder what other needlecrafts that I could include within this series…
