Roses Cross Stitch Pattern

Roses make my heart sing cross stitch pattern featuring roses in pots

Only recently I remembered I had designed this roses cross stitch pattern, it was quite a while ago but I don’t think I posted it on my blog, I prepared the pattern and forgot about it!

So here it is, another free pattern that is a quick stitch, I love quick stitches.

The pattern is available to download at the bottom of this post.

I hope you love this roses cross stitch pattern, let me know if you stitch it, I would love to see.

Garden Centre Visit

A few days ago we saw this gorgeous red rose climber that we knew would be perfect at our front door, it will climb up to three metres and I cannot wait to watch it bloom and grow.

When we purchased this house in France it really needed some care and attention, particularly at the front entrance so we have been working on this space to make it look more presentable.

The ugly brown shutters are now painted Provence Green and the old hydrangeas that filled the space are going to be replaced with window baskets and plants for a much cleaner look, so when I saw this hanging basket I knew I had the perfect place to display it.

Hopefully I will find a before photo and when it is finished I can show the final result.

Website problems

I had some plans to redesign and improve the layout of my website, but unfortunately those plans came to nothing. I engaged someone to do some changes but when the final day came to publish all the photos they were all wrong, most of them I had no idea where they come from, I had never seen them before.

It was only after the pages were published I noticed how bad it was, I had to cancel everything and restore my site back to the beginning, such a waste of time.

Giveaway planned for next time

The giveaway I had planned will be delayed until my next post.
