I picked up some small cross stitch rings so my mother can make Christmas ornaments or key rings. My children love all sorts of animals, but I wanted to share some of the patterns that are found in the book. Cats would be a perfect subject matter for my my to start a project with especially the tuxedo cat in these examples.
My mother has a farm themed kitchen and thought this towel would be perfect for these Animal Emblems especially the rooster. What a great way to decorate your home or gift to others during special times like Mother’s Day.
