Cross Stitch Picture Gift
A friend of mine (a relation by marriage) spent many hippy years (no - not a typo!) living in Chile. She lived on a mountain plateau, which looked down a valley to the river ... and in the valley were always sheep and mountain goats and fruit growing freely. If she looked upwards she could see the high mountains topped with snow. She earned a living by running her own little craft shop for which she made all the stock. Today, now living in London, she continues the tradition of making all her own gifts. She paints, knits, prints, sews, and crochets beautifully and has done many cross stitch pictures depicting this rural Chilean landscape. This is one lovely picture that she has made for me ...
Sadly it has not photographed well as the reflection of the garden rather spoils it.
The picture depicts the sky, the birds, the snow topped mountains, the plateau, the oranges, the sheep, and the river. Isn't it just wonderful?
Thank you G. xx
