Cross stitch fan…not!

We started to receive baby gifts from family and friends! G’s auntie gave us a yellow baby bib with some plain Aida fabric on the front. Since I realised I don’t particularly like proper baby motifs, I chose a stylised tree instead. I initially picked yellow and blue anchor threads, but didn’t like the finished stitch effect (too messy!), so I swapped it for some embroidery thread which was easier to use. After stitching the middle tree I decided to add two other colours to make it less boring and picked some olive green and a lighter blue. Did like the overall results, although I don’t think I like cross stitching very much…….
