Cross Stitch & a Sketch

Isn't this a great sketch from Freshly Made Sketches this week? I thought it was so fresh and fun! I have a new set called Hoop La La which worked really well with this layout. I tried it in 2 colour-ways and I love them both .... they actually look quite different which was surprising to me!

It is neat how different thy look...and both so wonderful. I'm taking a stich-along class starting this week..and was looking at this set earlier...mostly for that cute needle! I like how you used it. (are you a needlepointer? I might be asking you some how-to's, since I reallly don't know how to do it, but liked the project we were making LOL) On to looking back at your other projects. Have a sunny day! :D

These cards bring back fond memories of cross stitching as a young girl. I love how you used the focal image. Great job on this week's sketch.
