I don’t often get the chance to shop, let only op shop but with the eldest at daycare and Alfie quite content with goods from the bakery, I popped into the local oppy.

Given that I am all about cross stitch this week, imagine my absolute delight when I stumbled upon these two beauties.

Quite thrilled and am already planning their transormation.

I wonder what old lives these little beauties had?

The blanket stitching on there is so delicately perfect! Wonder what you will do with them?!

It's just one of those things… Once you jump in, you find it everywhere. Good luck with the new handcraft – I'm certain you'll have it completely mastered in no time. :-)

It's so wonderful to see the pieces that were made by a kindred soul, whom you've never met, being appreciated by you and brought into your world to continued life!
