I bought a timber cross stitch kit by Leutenegger from the Haby Goddess a few weeks ago and finally had some time to sit down to cross stitch the owl for my Mum. I was surprised at how quickly the kit arrived and it was wrapped in pink tissue paper and pink baker's twine ~ can you guess that it's my favourite colour!
The kit comprises a die cut timber cross stitch frame (the owl measures 5.5 x 6.5 cm), charts for six different patterns as well as an alphabet chart, DMC embroidery floss, needle and pre-cut peel-and-stick felt backing.
As per the instructions, I stitched the Flower pattern using three strands of thread, and it felt weird stitching on such a solid frame when I have been accustomed to stitching on fabric. The project was finished in less than an hour, and I stitched a brooch pin to the felt.
