This is a gorgeous cross stitched wall hanging in my favorite colours. The sails are all different quilting blocks and it has a lovely saying stitch on it..... Love it and it has joined other minis made by many different friends on the wall in the "Cave"

  7. Really pretty cross stitch from Sunny--she always does wonderful work on her gifts to us--and yes I too miss her blog!!
    you sure have some nice ufo's on your list of 12--will be fun watching for results as you work on them--
    and a question for you--what size does your 'girl' block come to???
    I thought the one that I downloaded was a bit large for what I wanted--so have redone it to be a 6.5" square block--but haven't actually made one up yet--that is on the list for Saturday!!!!
    have an awesome day--luv, di
