I finished these cross stitch projects a while ago, but had to keep them secret because one was a surprise for my grandfather. But now I can share!
My grandmother loves her garden, and these are some of her favorite flowers. Penny for scale.
The colors got sort of washed out, especially on the sunflower where you can hardly see the lighter shade of yellow. (And I didn't take off the masking tape I used to keep the edges from fraying!)
And this is my grandfather's shop, the Post & Boot, where he sells handmade birdhouses and other garden decor.
I wouldn't be a good granddaughter if I didn't give them some free advertising: http://www.browsethebrookfields.com/post-and-boot.html
