Altered Embroidery

I am a sucker for a nice picture frame. If the design inside has potential, that's a bonus.
This old cross stitch, found at a thrift store, was a little *blah*, but I had a vision for it.
I removed the old lettering.

The new design is positively, well, ... BLoOM-ing.
I stitched right in the frame.


Cheater confession: I ran thread through the buttons and glued them on.
