Friday Finishes #1: Smiley Flower

Ah, much better!

Our first Friday Finish!

Welcome to the first Friday Finishes article… that isn’t actually coming out on a Friday!

This article focuses on the very first cross-stitch piece I ever did at eight years old. After an exhaustive search of Google and the Internet, on a journey that took me from unreadable and non-loading Chinese websites to eBay, I have discovered all the information necessary to write this article, finally. Considering I completed this when I was eight I have no idea what happened to the chart or the front cover and I couldn’t remember the name of the kit or who it was by. Now I know, so now I can write the article!

Name of Piece: Learn a Craft (For Kids!) – Smiley Flower

Designed by: It doesn’t say on the front cover, and since I don’t own the kit anymore I couldn’t tell you if it was anywhere else.
