My special cross stitch finish :D

I am really excited to reveal this. I have been making a special project that's kinda a mix of cross stitch and quilting. I have an auction that I need to have something for on the 1st of March and I wanted something special.

So I have been working on my book cover. I bought some plain hard cover art journals and I wanted to make special covers to auction off.

It's been crazy quilted with one of my cross stitch designs mixed in.




 I love the way it turned out. It's bright and cheery and just plain gorgeous. I'm not entirely happy with the final finish to give it away. It was all an experiment. My sister has claimed this one as she loves it. I'm actually thinking of adding a moon on one side and a sun on the other to really show off the scene. But I'm still happy with how it turned out. It was all an experiment and it worked.

I will be making another one a little more planned out than this one was. Though it still took all day to do the quilting part!

Happy stitching,
Caitlin
