Varying degrees of white






Here is a close up of a section I've been working on the past couple of days.  I cross stitched the word 'Family' using three shades of DMC floss and rather like the way it looks.  The flower below that is one I crocheted and then added an antique button in the centre.   (You can click on the picture to embiggen it).

MaryAnne you are turning out some beautiful work. Your cross stitched 'family' is perfection! I so wish I could have taken that class with you and Deb. At least we are doing the Orts challenge together~lol.
