Allison's handiwork

Julianne wasn't the only little elf creating gifts this year. Allison also handcrafted a gift for Clarence and I for Christmas.

Allison isn't one to use patterns. She's far too free-spirited for that. But she has really enjoyed playing around with embroidery this year and decided to try cross-stitching something as a gift for us.

This is her first attempt at cross-stitch, using her own design.

Clarence and I were delighted to receive it. We do love their gifts from the heart. I am going to keep my eyes open for a new frame, however. This one would work for my mom, but isn't my favorite thing. Maybe I'll get Allison to help me find something a little less cherubic..and gold.

  1. I just love when the kids give gifts from the heart! Sweet!

    I am with you about the frame! :)

  2. What a darling picture! Bravo Allison, you did beautiful work! What about just spray painting the frame white or pale blue?


Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me!
