Prairie Schooler Earth Laughs in Flowers – my latest WIP


R Comme Rose

This is a freebie from Clochette at that I made up into a pinkeep. Clochette, thank you very much for your generosity. I’ll be stitching a few more of your patterns.

Certified X-stitch addict and lover of tea, fabrics and beads. I work in the vocational education and training sector and in my spare time potter around in the garden growing roses. I'm mum to two adult children of whom I'm very proud.
