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).
