While digging through a drawer of old cross stitch projects
(that I never seem to get around to finishing, completely)
I found this old PEACE cross stitch, it's at least 3 years old.
It had been crammed towards the back of the drawer,
leaving it pretty wrinkled. I pressed it out with the steam iron
(for about 15 minutes... aida is stiff stuff)
I found the pattern in an old library book of crafts.
In the book, their PEACE sign was double matted and framed.
I've been down that road before ($$$) so I knew I wasn't gonna do that again.
Picking through yet more scrap material (gotta be budget minded these days)
I found some old Christmas colored material with a nice pattern.
Looking at it now, lying on the table, I wish I had put another
row of the pine trees above the PEACE word.
I hope to finish it over the weekend and will post the finished product next week,
I need more low loft batting and some backing material.
I'd love to hear your comments!
