Just been browsing the net and found the cross stitch kit that I completed a few years ago, I will take a picture of the one I did and post it up later, but in the meantime here is a picture off the manufacturers website,
My mother-in-law does beautiful cross-stitch...I think it is called petite- pointes? She does a lot of the "Kincade" type scenes, with the tiniest stitches. I have a beautiful one hanging over my fireplace that is of a cottage scene and another of a Victorian bride.
Amazing work! I certainly don't have the patience and REALLY admire those who do. I think my mother-in-law works about 2k hours on her larger pieces, if not more. 8O
Thanks Dawn, The colour in the finished one is far more subtle than the example. I am very pleased how it turned out, and I only did 3 stitches wrong :wink:
I spent ages in the picture framers (sp) deciding on the border, and I am really pleased with my choice in the end. What you can't see from my picture is that the frame is quite decorative although quite dark as well.
