As a child, I always loved the stories of Beatrix Potter, and when the children came along, I jumped at the chance to get a set of her books. Other things may come and go, but I shall be keeping the books. It was a joy then, to find a cross stitch pattern whilst clearing through some old charts. This was a free chart that came with a cross stitch magazine, probably around the time the boys were born.
This is definitely a design that will come alive with the back stitching, but first, I shall have to finish the cross stitched part of the design.
That may not happen for a few days, there is something else on the knitting needles, and there's activity on the sewing table. Which one wins out, only time will tell.
