Let them be Small finished

Yesterday I finished the cross stitch on Let them be Small by Lizzie Kate.   Here it is before pressing
   I changed "children"to "grandchildren" and used a mix of the called for threads and some from my stash where needed.   My plan is to make a cushion which I did with another Lizzie Kate piece

Then in the evening I started a lovely free design by Jardin Prive called The Way to Happiness.   I already had it kitted with some white linen and overdyed threads by Nina which I bought from Jardin Prive.   

Beautiful colours with subtle colour variation 

The sampler comes in different languages: French, English, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese.  My A level French from many moons ago allows me to cope with the French version and it would be great to stitch the English and French versions and frame them side by side
