We received THE most amazing gift from the lovely and talented Sue McClelland recently, and I had to share it here with you! She's one of our customers, but she and her husband have also become great friends of ours over the years.
I sent her a family pic just before Christmas, and she spent the next four months working on this briliant cross stitch in the evenings and on weekends when her shop was quiet or closed.
I've been looking for a frame for it now for a few weeks and I chose this one because it was large so it really has some presence in the room.
I carefully chose where to put it - I wanted somewhere where everyone who visited the house would see so the obvious place was the kitchen!
From a distance you just see the picture and think it's a photo, but then as you get closer you can see it's cross stitch and the hours of work that have gone into it (Sue said approx 100 hours!).
I'm ever so grateful for this tremendous family memory she's given to us - it's brilliant!
