Forest Friends

Over the Summer, I had the opportunity to test Anna's new cross-stitch pattern. I did this set of three during my vacation at Bradley Beach, NJ. I was able to get all my supplies from Michaels, even the the 3" embroidery hoops. Cross-stitching is very affordable because the supplies are inexpensive.

This was super fun and almost instant gratification. It was the perfect project to take along on my vacation because it's small and portable. By the end of my trip, I had this set of three to hang on Melody's bedroom wall.

This set of three cross-stitch patterns is available at Mochimochi Land. As a bonus, Anna has included a pictured step-by-step tutorial on how to frame them in the hoops.

Darn you. I used to cross stitch a bit as a teen. I liked it and part of me always wanted to try it again. You mentioning Michaels sell the goodies didn't help any. ;) I must fight the urge not to click through and buy the patterns..

Super cute! I used to cross stitch all the time as a kid. Seems like something I could see myself getting back into. I love them!

I'm so jealous you got to test these, they're adorable! I wish I could cross stitch in the first place, let alone find the time to do it.
