Joining in on Chookyblue's cross stitching, thought I would show a small selection of pictures, this one was stitched by a family member way back in 1831 when she was 8 years old. Although it was showing signs of wear it was professionally framed several years ago in the hope of preserving a little piece of our family history. Definiately an heirloom
This one, although not in the same league follows the same lines
The Earth Dancer - I began this one when we came over to Spain as at the time we did not know where we would be or living and I needed something to concentrate on
The Angel of Summer was stitched for DD's 18th birthday in June 2003, I managed to stitch this whilst she was at college, although once or twice she nearly caught me out by returning home early. It took me three months and was only just finished in time.
Somehow, cross stitch is always the one to fall back on, no matter what other projects are in the pipe line. Although these days I draw the line at 28 hpi rather than using 40 hpi silk.
