Finishing Ideas
I finished the design as a small pillow. I then added a buttonhole stitch around the outer edge. I finished that with a crochet edge and a scallop pattern. 
You could also make small pincushions like I did by just using the flower motifs from the design.
Happy Gardening , donna



Les Fleurs Chic

Les Fleurs Chic Suggested Retail $12.00



*Model Stitched on 28ct Antique White linen over (2) by Wichelt Imports
Stitch Count 138 x 182
14ct or 28ct linen 9.85 x 13
16ct or 32ct linen 8.63 x 11.38
18ct or 36ct linen 7.66 x 10.11
*If stitched on 14ct Aida or 28ct linen this fits perfect in a 11 x 14 frame.
* PLEASE NOTE that the appliqué patterns are sized for a 14ct Aida or 28ct linen over 2
This is one of my designs that I made to add wool appliqué to a cross stitching project. I just love the tans, beiges, and white shades so I designed this to incorporate all of the things that are so fresh and clean. 

If you do not like appliqué then don’t be discouraged because I have included the directions for both cross stitching the whole design or trying both cross stitching with  appliqué flowers.

I have included the wool source that I used but you can be creative by choosing your own wool that would match a room in your home. Just pick 3 shades of any color to make it your own. How about changing the color of the vase, an over dyed green would be nice (another of my favorite colors)
You could try cross stitching the whole design on a small count linen

Serenity Harbor

Serenity Harbor Suggested Retail $72.00



This is a computer Image of Serenity Harbor...This was designed for a SAL in 2015. There Are 3 Designs Above. The original is the first one..and then some people in the SAL had problems with  being short of fabric to complete the whole design because of manufacture linen thread counts per inch being off...So I made a couple of smaller bottom designs so people had the choice to change the bottoms :)
This design is available in the Etsy shop as a PDF and there are also a number of shops that participated in the SAL and these shops have access for the Hard Copies of the charts..There are 12 Sections for the design
A Link To The Page for Serenity Harbor On My Blog:
Here is the full stitch count for the original design: 171 x 557...Everyone was challenged to choose their own fabric and also to change up the fibers to truly make this design their own :)
