Texas Bluebonnet

When I first moved to Texas almost 3 years ago, I was amazed by its spring wildflowers. I fell in love with its State Flower - Bluebonnet, and with its bluish purple color.

My very first experience with cross stitch was dated all the way back in high school when we were making a mother's day gift in home economics class. Twenty some years later, I came across this beautiful kit at George Bush Library, and couldn't resist but bought one home.

After letting it lay on the shelf for another 3 weeks, I finally picked it up and start stitching. This first project turned out to be so beautiful it motivated me to want to do more!! Ever since then I seemed to be addicted to cross stitch and can't stop from stitching!!
