A fab first time fin­ish

Cross Stitch Crazy - - Yourletters -

Here’s a pic­ture of the gar­den­ing pups from is­sue 244, which I’ve just fin­ished. I loved ev­ery minute of stitch­ing this cute de­sign. I made a cou­ple of mis­takes along the way, but apart from one I can’t see any of them any­more! I did have a few is­sues with the French knots, as I’ve never done them be­fore, but I think I man­aged in the end. All that I have to do now is iron out the hoop creases and do the fram­ing, which I’m go­ing to be do­ing very care­fully – I don’t want to ruin it af­ter all the work I’ve put into it! I re­ally en­joyed stitch­ing this piece and wish that I had taken up stitch­ing sooner. But, bet­ter late than never! I’ve also made a start on the orang­utan from the same is­sue as a present for my mum, as she loves orang­utans. Thanks for your lovely mag­a­zine. Ali­son says: It’s amaz­ing to see your progress on your stitchy jour­ney, Bev­er­ley. You’ve stitched these pups beau­ti­fully. I hope you’ll con­tinue to share your fin­ishes with us as you go!
