op shop

I totally scored at the op shop today. Look at this amazing cross stitch I can't believe someone spent so long doing all those stitches. I am hopeless at embroidery I did a class with my mum once and we got yelled at by the fierce teacher who's sons and husband also were award winning cross stitchers, about how the back was meant to be as polished as the front and not look like the tangled mess of spaghetti we had done.
I also found these wonderful free form illustrative jumpers, you can bet those boys of mine will be getting some wear out of them before they are old enough to make me stop.
