Young at Heart Challenge

I am entering this cross stitch into the Crafty Boots Challenge for the 'Young at Heart' challenge.  
Sibling Love
However I must admit that I haven't stitched it myself.  I am entering it on behalf of my wonderful Mum, who has been quite ill recently.  It was her that taught me how to cross stitch when I was little. (And having a little one myself I now know how frustrating that must have been.) She is a very talented woman, with a whole room dedicated to crafty stuff, so I have her very much to thank for my love of all things crafty!
I love this cross-stitch as I spent alot of time in Cornwall growing up, so it really could be me and my brother.  


  1. Please let your mum know that this is lovely. Cross stitching does not seem to be as popular now as it was 20 years ago and it is so nice to see people still enjoying this wonderful craft and this is a particularly good example.

    Thanks for playing along with us at Crafty Boots Challenge.


  2. Fingers crossed. She surely deserves it. And it reminds me of time spent on the beach with you both.
