Floral Cushions and Throws

In the last a few months, my husband and I had been looking for unexpensive floral cushions and throws. We found some in garage sales, and bought some from Superstore. However, I think I'll still be interested in stitching some by myself.
                                                             Good Luck with You!

Simple but elegant. It reminds me how my grandma's house was like. I can even smell her house. Oh, those memories in the smell. Who can tell?

Pink Rose. Good for simple color collection house.

Let me know if you like these kits.

Oil Painting

It's named Dark Castle. It's much more like a church.

This is the other one I would love to share. Last year we brought a tree oil painting  hanging in the office. The hue was pretty much like this cross stitch; strong and spry! It's awesome to have a cross stitch one.
