Cross Stitch!

Brought a small cross stitch bookmark, gifted me by my sister, to work on while at the hospital with my eldest DD for her check up at the ENT this morning...  She was bored doing nothing so I asked if she would like to work on the piece..
It end up with her taking it home to finish!  Yeah!!! She will probably inherit all my cross stitch stash when I go!

chain 3
1hdc in 2chain loop after 1st 3dc cluster
chain 2
sc in next 2chain space
chain 2
sc in next 2chain space
chain 2
1hdc in next 2 chain space before last 3dc cluster
chain 3
