This is a beautiful cross stitch that is 15 1/2" x 19"...flawless...I found it in a thrift store about three or four years ago for ".99 cents." I was just walking around, looking and there were some paintings leaned up against the wall that caught my eye. I started looking through them as I love art and there, staring back at me was this beautiful cross stitch..."Well,H-e-l-l-o Benjamin," I said. I could not believe someone would go to that amount of work and it end up in a thrift store for ".99 cents." I told myself to be calm as the thought crossed my mind I could be on candid camera or a victim of a cruel joke.... Such a treasure...I clutched it to my bosom and walked straight to the cashier and paid "gladly"...with joyful utterings that were wanting to squeal real loud...I hung it in my laundry room as I have rabbit planters on a shelf. I would have hung it any way just because I recognized the worth in it...someone decided it no longer had value to them.....think about this....it could have been a kit but if not...you would have to buy your cloth...floss...the pattern...and the frame....you can't even take into count your time....all you women out there that are thinking of giving away your completed cross stitch projects...I would gladly adopt them and take care of them......that is why we go through other people's junk....it is such treasure to us....
Every time I go into my laundry room I smile and ask the Lord to bless the person that put all those stitches in place to form such a sweet work of art.
You are special...You are beautiful...You are loved...May the sunshine kiss your face and you be "blessed" as you have inspired me through your beautiful, awesome blogs.
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
