We have had a few flurries of snow this morning with heavy snow forecast for tomorrow, so where better to be than by a cosy fire and your favourite stitching all to hand. I have started a new piece as a present for a friend . It is from a book called 'Flower Portraits in Cross Stitch' by Thea Gouverneur, if you ever get the chance to look at this book, do, as it has some beautiful flowers in there. I hope you can see that it is an Anemone, when I was a child I always pronounced it as amenome! The book illustration is on the left, and it's still work in progress so I will let you know how I get on.
