Free Thread! Yay!!

The new issue of Cross Stitcher came out today, yay :)  It has lots of lovely projects this month. My favorite chart so far is the make, do and mend wall hanging.  So many projects, so little time.

In the "Your Letters" page my love heart button box was printed :D  This is the first time I have had anything chosen and I am pretty pleased about it.

I used Anchor threads in all different colours and carefully stitched the phrases.  Once that was done it was just a case of stitching them onto my background and framing it.  In case you would like to make your own buttons the patterns is from "Irresistible Gifts To Cross Stitch" Bookazine.

Here is a better photo of my button box.  It was an anniversary present for someone special :) (and he loved it)

I even won some free thread so I will be able to make even more cute buttons!
