The Creative Cross Stitch Challenge #1

Over at The Gift of Stitching blog, there's a challenge.

As soon as I saw the chart an idea popped into my head, and here is what I came up with. I stitched the design three times and back-stitched it.

And then I joined them all together, stuffed it with lavender - it smells wonderful. Then I added a beaded hanger, and tassel, and here is the finish, hung from my stitching lamp.
