Bless Our Home

"Bless Our Home" © Lizzie*Kate has finished on Friday night and I framed it!
Fortunatelly, there was a suitable frame in my stash, so I used it for this design.

But there were blanks both top and bottom area, so I added linen laces.

I stitched this for my dear friend Fiona's new house!
Fiona and her husband have built a new house recently, so I wanted to stitch something for her new house!
At the first, I was thinking to stitch "Bless Our Home" © CCN, but there was an American flag in the design, and thought...uhmmm she is an Aussie and her husband is a Japanese, so I thought it might be a bit funny for them, or for their house...
So I decided to stitch this design for them!

I will stitch CCN's "Bless Our Home" for my house sometime later in this year with an American flag! :D
If someone who doesn't know about cross stitch saw it, might think it's a bit funny, though I don't mind, LHN & CCN are my favourite and I don't think to change it into a Japanese flag! lol

Anyway, I sent this and some red kitchen tools for her as her kitchen is red!
(I've met her at IKEA when she was choosing red system kitchen there!)
I knew it has arrived to her today, I do really hope she will like them!!
