A Welcome Return!

Click on images to enlarge

Today I'm sharing something a little different with you. I did these two cross stitch pictures at a time of tremendous upheaval in my life - the Angel one is about 4 years old and the Dreamcatcher is about 3 years old. They were very theraputic to do and are just as theraputic to enjoy looking at - the reason for the title of the post though is because they have been (very carefully) packed away in the loft for the last 18 months and the reason we can have them out again now is because our new bedroom is finally finished!! These pictures are the icing on the cake and we finally feel that we're properly home even though there's still lots to do :)
Thank you for popping by today.

  5. These are really beautiful, I am not a cross stitcher but can guess the amount of hard work that went into them both. I am glad that doing them was of help to you at the time and that they can now be admired in your newly finished bedroom and they will be the icing on the cake. Cathy xxx

    They will look gorgeous in your new bedroom.
