Coeurs en Boites 1

 
Mothers Day on Sunday 26th May is approaching so fast!
- Not in UK (as it was earlier on in March) but in France!
 
Mummy Mii is so kind.
telling me she doesn't want anything
 
I've however decided to stitch her a little something.
Coeurs en Boites from the blog Carton-Marie


 
I've seen this one finished & framed (Beautiful work Manuela!)
and somehow felt it would be a lovely present for my mum
 
I've started stitching it on antique white 18 count zeigwart aida.
Monochrome green thread
 
I'm keeping my fingers crossed, and hope it will be finished on time for the 26th!
 Am I insane? I truly have no idea if I can finish this on time
 
Happy Stitching!
Mii x

  3. For me, it would be a pretty ambitious attempt to stitch that in such a short time. But with your flying fingers, I'm sure you'll have to trouble, and it is, indeed, a lovely pattern. Your Mom will be so happy to have it.
