I am finding that my picture taking abilities leave something to be desired. I'll definitely be working on that!
I really enjoyed working on this piece. I have an aversion to 1/2 and 1/4 stitches of which this piece has none. This will get framed at some point and hung on a wall at my house. Can you believe that after over 20 years of cross stitching it will be my first major piece that I have kept? I wish now that I had created it on linen but I was still in an aida cloth stage of life and hadn't found the wonderful world of linen.
