New Design Finished and ready for Market

I am so excited it is finished. 
The name is "Les Fleurs Chics"
I have the directions for you to either cross stitch the whole thing or do ad I did and just cross stitch the leaves, stems, and vase. Then you can applique the flowers. It was so much fun and I added some fiberfill underneath some of the petals to make them more dimensional. 
So if you are happy to cross stitch then this is for you and if you are adventuresome with your stitching then this is for you too. It will be available March 4th. The model is on the way to the trade show in Nashville. Also I am anxious for the stitched flowers to come back from April. When they do I will have more to share with you. I will finish those as small pillows, this way you can see what the stitched flowers will look like too.

Oh and one more huge thing :>).
Here is the finished photo of the design that I made for Just Cross Stitch magazine and if you like then you can purchase the magazine. The flowers are a good size that you can stitch them individually and make scissor fobs or small pincushions, or how about making needle books. 
Oh just have fun stitching and keeping out of trouble :)
