Coeurs en Boites 2


I am so pleased, it took me a whole 2 weeks of non stop stitching
but Coeurs en Boites from Carton Marie was finished on Saturday.

As it is a Bank Holiday here in UK, I can't mail this until Tuesday
but I'm sure Mummy Mii won't mind having her Mother's Day present a few days late!

Stitched on white 18 count zweigart fabric
and DMC 470 Olive Green & 3820 Maze Yellow


Here it is finished as a cushion (yet again!)
Hubby found the perfect matching fabric at the local shop

I believe it would have looked nicer framed but I then realised
it would have got damaged in the post
So I opted for the safest option: a cushion!

I hope Mummy Mii will like it!!

Happy Stitching!
Mii x
