I just finished this SAL from Crazy Cross-Stitch magazine. Issue #139 on pg 48. The designer is Rhona Norrie. I stitched french knots instead of beads as it will be framed.

I am almost done with this project. I just have the leaf at the bottom left corner, backstitching and french knots left to do. This is a SAL that I am doing with one of my cross stitching group. Some of the gals have finished it in various ways...like on a tote bag, one gal put it on a wooden box to keep her stash, floss, needles, etc.... another framed it, etc... I haven't decided yet how I want to do the finishing when done with the stitching.

Since I write letters, I am stitching up these "Winnie the Pooh" characters ...... I use double-sided tape to put stitched character onto card stock then go from there to write my own letter. An idea to elict smiles from the receiver when opening the letter.

Pooh and Piglet walking toward the sunset is on the back of the mailart envelope.
I will be adding some small gifts inside the envelope. The flap of the envelope is secured with buttons to keep the gifts inside. I already stitched the person's snail address on the envelope. It is ready to go to the post office next week.
