I managed to finish this before I went out this morning. The design is Flower Girl, by Sue Page and was in the World Of Cross Stitching magazine. Although I stuck to the basics where the Flower Girl herself were concerned I used hand dyed threads for the baskets. Kaalunda thread was used for the tall basket and House of Embroidery thread for the smaller ones. The flowers were stitched using a variety of different hand dyed threads and instead of doing them in cross stitch I used french knots. These were done using a mixture of two or three threads and winding round two, three or even four times to give the flowers depth and texture. The face was done in petit point which is just another word for half stitch done one over one, and gives a lovely dimension to the work. I am really pleased with how she has turned out though as usual pictures really do not do her justice.
I am going to make a start on putting my scissor fob together tonight so if there air looks a little blue over Derbyshire you will all know why lol.
Another first, please note Becky, I have crossed this off my rota lol. One big happy bunny here.
