Monthly Cross Stitch Challenge.

This is my choice for the ODW Challenge for June, something fury. The chart is a freebie from, The Little Stitcher. A small stitched piece, easily completed for me as a not so fast stitcher, within the specified 24 hour period..

Below is the May ODW challenge piece, which I thought was going to be just the inside strawberries. When completed, it seemed to be lost in the background linen, 32ct Belfast. I decided to stitch the rest of the pattern early in June, the white rose border to add some light to the design. Instead of a small jam bottle cover, it is now a much larger piece. I found a lovely piece of patchwork fabric on line called "Strawberries & Roses,  so  that will be incorporated  in the final makeup, yet to be decided.


  1. I love the delicate strawberry finish, and the bunny, too, of course! Can't resist any bunny stitching :) Hope your July is off to a great start!
