Cross Stitch

A 60th birthday card I made for my Auntie.

 

I made this bookmark for a friend who was leaving his job as a chemistry teacher. I thought he’d find it fun if I made up his name (Sam) using the elements of the periodic table. It looks like a simple design but it actually took a lot longer than I thought it would to stitch. I really like the idea of using the atomic element symbols as letters to spell out words so I may use this idea for another project in future.

 

This cross stitch came as a freebie kit attached to the front of a magazine. I have to say that it originally started out as a present for someone but in the end I couldn’t give it away as I’d fallen in love with it while sewing it. It’s so sweet isn’t it, I had it mounted and framed and now it is the first thing visitors see when they walk into my living room.

    Love the idea of the Periodic Table bookmark, an inspired idea and one I may copy in the future. Keep going with the blog, it gets easier once you’re in the habit of it.
