My latest piece of finished Cross stitch.
This beautiful lady has taken me some time to make, the chart, threads and beads were all sent to me by a lovely American friend, Angela, about 4 years ago. I finished all the cross stitch quite some time ago, then hit stitcher’s block, which lasted for quite some time! Finishing my daughters banner earlier this year gave me a boost and I am now working my way through all the half -finished pieces!
The stumbling block on this piece was the beads! As they are spaced out quite a lot, each bead needed to be attached securely, but they were well worth all the effort involved. All I need to do now is to get her framed in time for this Christmas!
I still have quite a number of UFOs (unfinished objects!!) in my cross stitch pile but it will be a while before I complete another piece as the other pieces are nowhere near being finished, hmmmm now which one shall I do next??
